Greetings from Alaska
How much salmon can one person eat?
I'm trying to find out now as I take a 7-day excursion with Mother Dear here in Alaska.
We've had smoked salmon dip in Fairbanks, a smoked salmon BLT at Alaska Salmon Bake in Denali Park, a Seafood pasta with salmon and King Crab on the Alaska Railroad, and a Salmon Pasty at the Historic Roadhouse in Talkeetna.
I was tempted to try some salmon jerky too. We've had reindeer (aka caribou) sausage on a pizza in Denali at Prospectors Pizza and a Reindeer meatloaf at the Historic Roadhouse in Talkeetna.
Last night for dessert we found a great Airstream trailer converted into a food truck that sold rhubarb blueberry crisp in Talkeetna. The whipped cream was fresh!
We've had some beer from the 49th State Brewing Co. and a nice shandy (Denali Brewing Co. beer and lemonade). The Alaska Railroad bartender makes a serviceable Bloody Mary with Alaskan vodka.
We're on to Anchorage now, with a pit stop near Wasilla (aka Sarah Palin territory) to meet some Iditarod sled dogs.
