From Dorothy Long in Lloydminster, Sask:
Our family will celebrate Canadian ingredients during our annual trip to the lake. Along with five other families we head to Kimbal Lake in Northern Saskatchewan to lay on the beach, swim, fish, water ski and just simply kick back with good friends. One of the highlights of the week is that each evening one family hosts the meal for everyone else. The fare is always outstanding and always based around great Canadian ingredients. The Cotes have a great grilled vegetable recipe with vegetables fresh from their garden that ar simply tossed with canola oil, fresh lemon juice and salt and pepper; Joan Heath is grilling salmon for the Heath-Loessin meal; Kelvin and Shelley Meadows joked about emu hot wings for their evening but I think Kelvin is too attached to his emu for that… instead beef kabobs and jerk chicken; Raths will be featuring wild game at their meal with a non-wild option for the faint of heart; Claytons did some great home made French fries last year and have chosen to surprise us this year and our meal will be good old Canadian beef burgers with all the fixings and a fabulous bean salad that I will send along for your recipe section. I almost forgot we, of course, wash all of this down with VQA wines and great Canadian beer. Happy BBQing everyone. We will toast Canada and think of you all!
