a dog's dinner?

Ah, the extremes of life; the breadth, the width, the depth of experience!

On the 16th we dined on lobster; the next night we sat on logs in the midst of an abandoned cowboy camp and ate a backpacker's version of beef stroganoff, made with the dried Lipton version which we enhanced with fresh mushrooms sauteed in butter, a sprinkle of freeze-dried onion, and a can of roast beef. The stroganoff, which looks like a dog's dinner (an old sailor's term referring to a tangle of knotted lines)was superflous to the appetizer of wine, cheese, bread... and thou.

  1. Yum. it reminds me of dinner after backpacking. It needed to be light, but filling - and we were always willing to pack the wine!
