  1. A twist on breakfast for dinner.

    A deep dish Quiche (Western Omelette style) and homemade breakfast sausage loaf.
    Everything homemade including the pastry shell (my first ever, much to learn yet) and the bread crumbs in the sausage loaf which was served with some home grown homemade Rhubarb Chutney.

     Pieroway rods?

    ended up with a couple when out west a while back and still hold onto my metal detector 600 grain cause I really like the feel, as I understand it Jerry French and Geoff Pieroway teamed up some time fairly recently and my friend tells me it's his favorite. I havent seen or casted it so cant say.


    Canadian marketed, not Canadian made. 

    The end product however can be assembled in Canada with parts sourced globally (sadly) like this one.




  3. So a week ago this past Thursday I took the boat back to Dunnville, nothing unusual about that.
    However this time was very different. Just prior to Covid I reconnected with my childhood friend and neighbour and now post Covid we finally managed to go fishing together, again after a 45 year gap. The fishing post cold front was not stellar but the day, the memories, the conversation.....well in short everything was quite special for both of us.

    While the post cold front Walleye would not come out to play with us, the Sheephead finally showed mid morning when the water warmed one full degree F*

    The post fishing trip ended with my usual stop at the Country Chip Wagon where my friend (Chris) was happy to treat me to a late lunch.

    For me it's never the fish count, it's the memories created and those revisited. 🙂

    Here's a few pictures from the day ending with my boy Gordie's second ever boat trip, exhausted as he was still wagging his tail with joy.

    So my wife was away last evening and I thawed a package of elk steaks my buddy had brought from BC.  No sense sharing elk if I don't have to!  I have never butchered an elk, so did not recognize the cut.  For sure the small steaks were cut from a larger piece, and my guess is bottom round.  Anyways, elk really should be eaten no more cooked than medium rare, and it goes from rare to medium in a heartbeat.  Difficult to achieve on the BBQ, even with indirect heat, so I pan-fried them, and even took PICTURES!!!  That orange stuff on the plate is a vegetable.



    I like the eggs on those fine looking steaks, nice touch. 😃

    This works for either regular white or a medium rye bread. If you're making white just use 3 3/4 cup white, for rye split as below.

    2 1/4 cups white flour,  1 1/2 cups rye flour (bulk barn).

    1/3 cup sugar, pinch of salt

    1 pack of Fleishmans fast rising yeast and 6 teaspoons of Fleishmans bread booster.

    1 1/2 cups of milk and 4 tablespoons butter (no margi, yuck).

    Mix dry ingredients in the mixer bowl,  warm the milk for about 2 minutes in MW with butter til it's melted, stir and add to the dry mix.  I run the mixer with the dough hook for about 4 minutes on #2 speed.  Pre heat oven to about 150F for a couple minutes and turn off.

    Take the dough and knead it for about 2 minutes on a floured surface,  and fit into a 9x4 inch bread pan, spray with PAM, (I prefer glass pan).  Put into the oven for about 45-50 mins or until doubled.  Take out of oven, preheat to 350F, insert loaf pan for about 23-25 minutes.  Take it out of loaf pan onto a cooky grill and let it cool.  Store in a paper bag, plastic will make it sweat too  much.  If the smell doesn't make you drool, you have covid. I found the Fleishmans bread booster made a big difference.




    I'm making this as we speak to go with my homemade Lemon Chicken and Bulgar soup. Stay tuned. :)

    Awesome report Chris. I see your still sporting the Lund, I told you before and I'll say it again that is a really nice ride.

    Thanks for sharing a fishing report

    Thanks Phil. I've sadly and regrettably not been using the Lund as much as she deserves to be used, I've even toyed with selling it a few times and I've had amazing offers on it. However, my daughter Madison informed me a few years back I'm not allowed to sell it, she has laid claim to it. :)

     I will concur with you whole heartedly, it is a really nice ride.  :D
