It seemed appropriate for this moment... Luna Raising the Moon by Deftspex:

Blessed winter solstice, everyone!

Those on the southern hemisphere may enjoy Celestia raising the Sun instead.

Thanks! I would if it wasn't raining as heavily as it unfortunately is right now.

Very nice! No rain here, just heavy frost that turned all the trees white. ^_^

Ah, frost... I vaguely recall that. It's something that used to happen in winter, right? :P

More like mid-autumn. Frost on leaves, frost on flowers, frost on rose-hips... ^_^

Mmm, I sure wish I lived in a place where you'd get frost and snow in mid-autumn.

Come on over to my place! It's cluttered and mice keep letting themselves in, but we can go cut down a few birches and fire up the wood stove! ^_^

It tastes like its description, gravy and chunks of mild hard cheese on french fries ("chips", patates frites). ^_^ Served hot.

Come on down! We even have a greasy spoon that made its fortune selling "the best poutine". It's called Chez Ben On Se Bourre la Bedaine (at Ben's we stuff our guts).

All you really need are french fries, squeaky cheese curds and thin gravy. Combine the hot fries with the cheese curds in a bowl, pour the hot gravy on top et voilà, poutine.

I'd love to. It sounds amazing. What part of Quebec are you in?

I've tried so many times to make poutine but without the right cheese (which is yet another thing that is illegal to import here) the whole thing just falls apart. It is amazing how there are so few ingredients so you'd think poutine would be easy to make but I guess with a few, each counts a lot more and it has to be flawless.

I'm intrigued — what cheese is that that's illegal to import into the USA?
