When was the last time you had Poutine? Was it here in the Hudson Valley? Not sure what the heck Poutine is? The closest thing that some places come to this Canadian comfort food is something called "Disco Fries" at one of our neighborhood diners.
Really good Poutine (poo-teen) has a base layer of crispy, almost well-done French Fries, then has cheese curds on top of that, then it has an appropriate avalanche of gravy (usually a brown gravy).
Fellow foodies, is there any place in the Hudson Valley that is known for its Poutine?
The photos here in this article are all from different Hudson Valley establishments that I have visited that happened to have Poutine on the menu as a special, but I can't recall too many places that have it on a regular menu.
However, with the help of a few dedicated Hudson Valley Foodies, we have tracked some down. Feel free to email and let me know if there is a place that we left off the list.

Can You Remember Your Favorite Girl Scout Cookie growing up?
As much as we enjoy Girl Scout Cookies in 2023, we often miss the ones that we used to love growing up. Have you heard of my personal favorite Girl Scout Cookies that are now retired?
Shortbread cookies are always a win. This Girl Scout Cookie was dipped in chocolate and it also had a friendly message on it. It had the words "Thank You" on it.
These powdered sugar cookies were delicious. They also had pecans and coconut mixed in and were reduced fat.
Lemon Chalet Creme
This was one of my favorite lemon cookies to ever exist. How could a lemon sandwich cookie ever go wrong? The added cinnamon and ginger made it one of a kind.
I remember that these cookies were named after the founder of The Girl Scouts, Juliette Low. It reminded me of a chocolate turtle with its being covered in caramel, pecans and milk chocolate.
Ra Ra Raisens
This was unlike your ordinary raisin cookie. This Girl Scout Cookie brought in oatmeal and yogurt chips with the raisins.
This Girl Scout Cookie knew how to put a smile on your face. They were lemon wedge cookies with powdered sugar.

I loved the Girl Scout Cookies that were discontinued but also enjoy the present day one as well.
