These are just some of the images from August 23 at Fort Normandeau Days at Fort Normandeau located just west of Red Deer on the C&E Trail.
A celebration of the three cultures that founded Red Deer, First Nations, Metis, and European.
More photos and captions will be added later.
It almost looks peaceful. You would never know that the evening before people were scanning the skys to the west for any sign of a threatened tornado, or that the thunderstorm that did come through left enough hail blanketing the ground that it could have been mistaken for a winter snow storm rather than a summer thunder storm.
I’m working on creating a recipe calendar as a fund raising project for a food bank. Here are the photo’s that I have so far. Let me know what you think about them.
This one is one of my all-time favorite food photographs, it’s a simple Lemon Curd tart garnished with a sliced fresh strawberry.
Again, staying with the Lemon Curd Tart we have now topped it with some locally picked wild Saskatoon Berries.
Switching now to beef, we have a beef stew with a bit of a twist, instead of using beef stock for the cooking liquid we replaced it with a couple of bottles of Hard Apple Cider.
You would think that this luscious looking piece of Lasagna would be carrying on with the idea of beef, but you would be wrong because this lasagna is all vegetarian covered in a rich diary free béchamel sauce.
This dish comes from Spicy Green Restaurant in Prince George, BC, and if you ever find your self in Prince George, you will want to make it a must stop for their South Indian menu.
And this Butter Chicken dish is also from the Spicy Green Restaurant, and quite frankly it is so good, that it’s worth making the trip to Prince George just to eat it. It comes with a big side of rice, Naan Bread, and Papadam.
