Ok, so after working 24 hours a day for 8 days in Portland I decided I needed some R&R (No, not the beverage). So on Friday we headed out to Kobuk Lake (Hotham Inlet). We will be gone until Tuesday evening. Right now we are at Iten's dogsitting for Ed and Ruth. The Iten's sattelite internet is way slower than mine so I am having a bit of trouble uploading photos. Instead of using photobucket for my pictures I am going to have to upload them straight to blogger so the photos will be smaller.
First stop was Auntie Allie's camp. Allie and Buddoo are year round camp folks out on Kotbuk Lake. By the time we got there we were plenty hungry and Allie was cooking up some porcupine.
I have had baked porcupine with barbecue sauce before. It was an old pokie fella so he tasted a bit piney. According to Allie this was a nice fat young one and he wasn't piney at all, he was delicious. She fried her's in Crisco with flour onion and garlic salt and pepper. Mmmmm!
So we had quite the spread, fried porcupine, sourdough hotcakes, blackmeat and seal oil with beluga muktuk and leftover roast caribou. You can always count on Allie to feed you up right.
