my thunder bay experience

I had the pleasure of spending a few days in Thunder Bay with my friend Jillian and her family and friends.  I guess you could call it somewhat of a "Northern Canadian" experience!  One night we had a fish fry with pickerel that they caught the week before from Lake Superior (yum, doesn't get fresher than that!) and some amazing salads (recipe to come!) and appetizers.  It was supposed to be a small gathering - but after a day of running errands we ended up collecting a few more guests and soon it became a fun dinner party with lots of wine and awesome food.  Another night we made Lake Superior salmon (I honestly didn't know salmon was in fresh waters) with homemade butternut squash ravioli.  Nothing beats delicious food, spending time with friends, and meeting great people.
