Friday night we had good old deep fried beer battered cod, squid and spuds [potato scallops in the Oz vernacular].

Then yesterday being a snow day it was a good time to knock up a batch of bread and a couple of pizzas with the left over dough.

There seems to be a fine line between what Environment Canada calls a blizzard and just plain old snow and wind.

Friday was a BLIZZARD with snow and winds gusting to 72 clicks.

The Blizzard warning ended yesterday morning but for most of the day we had more snow with winds gusting to 61 but with longer periods and higher sustained winds than Friday. Just saying.

Yesterday was also the first time than an NHL game was broadcast in the Inuktitut language. Fran was switching back and forth between the main CBC national channel [English] and CBC North [Inuktitut].

No matter what language you watched it in Montreal came up short again.

A friend dropped up a nice fresh leg of caribou yesterday too. It will make about four good meals, the first one will be meat cakes, or some call them meat balls or rissoles.

Whatever name you call them when they are made with caribou they are the ultimate.
