Let me be clear about one thing here: Alaskan food stinks. Alaska itself is one of the most killer amazing places on the planet and while I was traveling there I did not think about eating. I just ate. Mostly frozen french fries, as I've mentioned previously. Also, Twix bars, butter pecan fudge, and bacon. I didn't mind at all, because in Alaska, food is beside the point. But this is a food-oriented blog and so I feel I should avoid writing too much about the birch forests, rivers, baby ptarmigans, orcas, columbines, and other non-culinary glories of the 49th state.
Okay. Moving on.
In addition to cooking from Best of the Best from Alaska, I'm going to try out different recipes for Baked Alaska. I've got a few hundred floating around. So that's what's coming up at Tipsy Baker, starting tomorrow.
We returned home tonight to some rather deflating developments (and non-developments) in our home renovation project. Mark would describe them as "stupefying."
