We travelled to Buffalo for Thanksgiving this year. It is as close to Canada as you can get without a passport. I did not have to wear a coat while there, so I can make no complaints about the cold. I think you need to know a few of the differences that stand out as you visit Buffalo. First of all, if someone offers you squash at Thanksgiving, it is not fried yellow squash. We may have been sheltered, but that is the only squash I know. Anything else referred to as a squash is traditionally used in your Halloween decoration, and you certain do not bake it and eat it. I mean it's not even fried. I'm suspicious of any vegetable not fried. Yes, they do serve stuffing. It was very good. They also allowed me to bring cornbread dressing, which made up for the distinct lack of anything with sweet potatoes in it. Something else you need to know about Buffalo, you are not anyone unless you are carrying around a cup of Tim Horton's coffee. You also have to know who Tim Horton was. Good luck on that 90% of Southerners. They love their hot dog restaurants, and they do not serve Oscar Mayer. Another thing I noticed as I stood outside a Target at midnight on Black Friday, you don't ever see a perogie truck circling around the Piggly Wiggly. You also don't see a lot of snowmobile crossing signs in our area. We don't go pick up breakfast sandwiches; we go get a biscuit...most likely from a gas station. I will emphasize an important point. Never, ever, under any circumstances, order sweet tea. Just trust me on that one.
