    Hmmm.. let's see... on my mom's side of the family, my Great-Grandparents came over from Russia when they were kids, in 1899... on my dad's side I think some of my Great-Great-Grandparents came from England, Scotland, and Ireland at some point in time. So that makes me, what 4th-5th-ish generation? (I dunno, I can't count :rolleyes:)

    And since then, my family has definitely not moved around very much. The farm where my dad grew up got recognized as a 'Century Farm' or something, where it had been in the family for 100 years. My aunt and uncle and cousins live there now. :D As for my mom's side, the place where the Doukhabor village that all the landed Russian immigrants settled is like 5 miles from my parents' house.

    As a result, I'm related to like half the town where I grew up. :rolleyes: Well, anybody whose families have been there for a while. How's that for being a hick?

    Thanks, Palm! I'd better damn well get better quickly, cause it's summer. And it's almost my birthday. Hmph.

    Shuri, that's disgusting! Yech. Prairie Oysters are a food entree consisting of... *shudder* bull testicles.

    Oops. Sorry, Shuri! I am sick, but even deathly illness cannot keep me away from Talk! Man but that sounds lame XD

    Do we have any specifically West Coastern food? Salmon, I guess. Salmon's a big West Coast think. All seafood, really.

    But Salmon, to me, falls into that catagory.

    Hehe, I too knew what prairie oysters were. Yay for food that no person in their right mind should eat. They should do that on Fear Factor. ;)

    There's a town near Saskatoon that has a statue of a bull. People kept vandalizing it though, so he became a steer. ;)

    *cough* I've eaten Prairie Oysters on a dare. And I hope everyone knows what a muskeg is...

    Ah, But I'm such a traitor to Alberta. Everyone is all "Eat only Alberta Beef!" And I'm like "I hate beef. I like Moose/Elk meat D:" And everyone tries to beat me with their slabs of steak...

    ^ See, now I would say that moose/elk meet is stereotypically Northern food, ie. Yukon/NWT/Nunavut. Growing up there it was like every single damned "heritage" day or whatever it was all moose meat stew. I like Moose, it's very good.
