    Apparently, we are scheduled to have my new canoe outfitted that weekend. Sorry to miss out on this outing. Let me introduce my new boat...the "Starry Night."

    That's an adorable canoe! Sad to hear you won't be joining us though.

    Ok.

    The following weekend's going to be Canadian Thanksgiving, so I was thinking that we put our culinary thinking caps on and come up with a legendary Bushcraft Thanksgiving dinner of our own on Saturday night. I don't mean excessive volume; we always have way too much food. I'd prefer to sample those family recipes that make Thanksgiving's so special for each of us. The only rule is that they need to be prepared completely on site. No store bought shortcuts for we'EGL.

    My family has a Ukrainian tradition of a white mushroom sauce that is my own personal Kryptonite. No one does it well as dear old Grandma used to make it, but we try. It goes on top of anything but on this occasion I just might try making up a batch of my classic cabbage rolls in the old Dutch oven.

    I challenge someone to take on the main course! If there's a double carry required to bring in the ingredients, suck it up butter-cup.

    Tell us what you're thinking of bringing so we have a comfortable table set.

    P.S., If you're not a die hard "experimental foodie" do not despair, a good appetite and maybe a bottle of wine goes a long way.


    For my part, I'm thankful that over the last decade, I've been able to dip a paddle with some of the most wonderful people I've ever met through the EGL. True friends share portages. To those who've paddled and those who still paddle, I raise a toast.

    it's amazing how many of Baba's recipes start with "cut up bacon and fry, add chopped onion..." I'm not sure i want to be frying bacon up there.
    but kielbasa and sauerkraut with onion, mustard and rye bread is a good start.

    It's amazing how many EGL recipes start with "cut up bacon and fry, add chopped onion..." I wouldn't worry about it.

    FYI: 76 Highboy dehydrated sauerkraut with great success a while back.

    Sadly I'll have to miss both trips. Somehow I'm coaching two basketball teams right now so my Fridays are all booked.
