RE: Looking for an old Cookbook

I will take mega bets that what you want is The Joy of Cooking by Irma Rombauer, either in the original 1931 edition or the 1943/46 edition. BUT there is a 2006 edition that has more about ingredients, measures, etc. and more about types of food, especially animals. Early editions leaned heavily animals came from the farm. The latest edition tells about animals we can get today. Named contributors are: original author, daughter, grandson. It is: Joy of Cooking: Joy of Cooking. by Ethan Becker, Irma S. Rombauer, Marion Rombauer Becker. Scribner | October 31, 2006 | Hardcover There is a nice write up at: Chapters.Indigo book company There is a FAMILY run website that shows all this and more: http://www.thejoykitchen.com/all-about-joy/all-about-joy Go visit a bookstore and you'll see what I mean and why this is one of the world's best selling books. :C http://www.thejoykitchen.com/sites/default/files/styles/feature_image/public/features/img_0001.jpg?itok=W1rS26NY width=300 http://www.thejoykitchen.com/sites/default/files/styles/feature_image/public/features/img_0006.jpg?itok=RVy-RdSr width=300

RE: Does anyone make their own buttermilk?

So, ya gets some milk from the farmer with cows. Ya takes a bucket of that milk and ya puts that on the stove and gradually heat it to 140'F. That pasteurizes the milk. Ya strains the milk so that it has no hard matter that doesn't belong. Ya takes the strained milk and puts it in a number of containers. In the old days, there was as spring house that was cool and you could use a wide-topped container. After a day you would carefully skim off the cream into your butter churn. We, my family, put the days milk into quart mason jars and put them in our fridge. We skimmed off some cream each day - say from 4 or 5 jars. After a week we made butter. Then we had the buttermilk. We used no additives. BTW I'm 72 now. From the age of 7 I started milking one cow 2x per day. I earned $0.05 per milking. I got no allowance, so that was my paying chore. Jersey and Guernsey cows are two of the best milkers for cream. Holsteins are better for a higher percentage of milk. This looks like a 4-US quart butter churn https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBXNF2dvOdw :C ps. IMHO the most thirst quenching beverage is whole milk.

RE: First Time Traveling Through Canada.

Was this originally actually a question regarding the availability of gas in Canada?? Wow. Yes and Camping but it kind of Morphed into other stuff and I am OK with it....... Actually, my "Wow" comment had more to do with the my astonishment that you'd think gas might not be available in Canada for some reason. Ha ha ha No actually if you have read the first post I asked the question is FUEL not gas. Here in the States there are places where Fuel (aka Diesel) is hard to find... Betcha the places where diesel is hard to find in the USA are in cities where 'gas' stations just squeeze into their lot. Both countries use trucks to transport goods more than any other carrier. Get your diesel on the main drag! :C

RE: Women Going Solo in an RV?

Having come from a traveling family, having had 3 travel jobs, I want to say a quote from the late Pierre Trudeau: "Oh fuddleduddle!" Roll dolls, roll. Granted I don't go solo. I have 2 4-legged friends always. ;)

RE: Should I exchange $$$$ to Canadian $$$$ Before.

If I were going to exchange any money, it would be at a bank. Always get the exact exchange rate with no hold backs or extra charges. ;) Or use a credit card for purchases. Actually, X3. Banks give you the best exchange rate. Once upon a time, USA banks were local, thus the exchange rate for other countries was rarely used. Canadian Banks have been regional, national or international longer. Thus, exchange currency from another country is a routine transaction. :C

RE: How to leave your dog alone in the RV??

Just back online after hard drive failure. I am answering without reading the thread through. So, the quick and dirty answer. Purina because you can cross the border at just about any small town and replace your dog food on either side. :C

RE: Newfoundland and labador

I lived in NL from 1983 to 2008. I too have a truck camper and find it very very suitable to many places on that island (and for Labrador as well). Top places IMHO: - Gros Morne Natinal Park - ALL of it. Several sites are only place like that on this planet. - Northern Peninsula, especially Viking sites - St. Mary's Bird Sanctuary - St. John's - Miscellaneous side roads. Corner Brook and to the sea, Corner Brook to Deer Lake ----- both after you cross over to North Shore Bay of Islands and take the logging roads. - Red Indian Lake via side roads. Wish I'd done more, lots more of that kind of meandering. :B

RE: P E I campground reservations

Agree. Reserve. This is a year when the CA$ is less than the US$. But July is big time tourism. Remember, take the ferry to PEI and the bridge from PEI. You pay when you leave and the bridge costs less. :C

RE: New Foundland

Trip is cancelled. I could not get ferry res. when needed and I now own a 26' GMC MH in addition to having a Roadtrek for sale. Having lived there for 24.5 years, I find it hard to believe that there wasn't some way around your dates. - Did you try changing for a different time of the day? - Did you try changing which port is the destination port in NL? - Or the call me if you have a cancellation....... Etc. Or should I say, I've found the "what options haven't I thought of", conveyed sufficient concern. :C
Little Kopit 05/20/15 04:50pm RVing in Canada and Alaska

We travel back and forth to the US a lot including with our dog. We have never been asked about taking dog food into Canada. Chances are very strong that you will be asked this year.

RE: chicken and dairy products into Canada

Re. Pet Food: What you do is call grocery stores on your route, just inside the border or one night's stop inside Canada and find out if they carry what you use. I can say that I see Iams in the area where I live, but I don't use it so I will not have paid attention to how common a product it is. The type of dog food I use is very common. Thus, I won't mind if it gets taken. On my trip near the border this year I'll carry small amounts and won't quibble if they confiscate it. Keep original container from the store. :C

RE: Latest on Poultry Ban into Canada

This was updated yesterday, May 11th; http://www.inspection.gc.ca/animals/terrestrial-animals/imports/travellers/restriction-on-imports/eng/1421341696172/1421341727507 ... Eric I'm glad you posted this information, we're headed up to Alaska via BC and the Yukon. I find the Canadian border website very difficult to navigate in trying to find such information. When you search are you including 'domain', ie. ".ca" in your search site. Or are you going to www.google.ca or www.yahoo.ca? :C

RE: Latest on Poultry Ban into Canada

Well, I had heard about bird flu in Canada. All of this means expect to be questioned about pet food and have it confiscated, since poultry is often the protein in pet food. Carry a brand you can replace in any small town. Or if a prescription diet, a copy of the prescription. :C
Little Kopit 05/12/15 09:34am RVing in Canada and Alaska

One of the best sources for all of your questions is your vet. It's not just what customs may require, but what might happen where you are going. -Most US locations will mean treatment for lime disease. My home territory requires that now too. -Heart disease pill for other locations. I always ask and try to get it all done within 30 days of my travel start date. Re. the border vets I had in Newfoundland all said get a health certificate. Vets I have had on this side of The Gulf also say get a health certificate. & what difference does that make to you anyway. You're making a routine annual check up trip to the vet, eh!! Plus, remember to make sure the pet food can be bought on both sides of the border. Either set of border guards can confiscate your pet food, should they be told to enforce that particular regulation. There has been bird flu this year (our country). & that just about guarantees somebody will have to turn over their pet food. :C

RE: Question for Canadian seniors

I think the 3 Maritime provinces are configured, ie, geographically set up to provide more at home care direct level than other provinces. We lack those long stretches of eensy popupulations going north. ON can't do for Toronto what it is prohibitive to do for Moose River. Or likewise, BC for Vancouver is too thin on the ground for near, but not in Prince Rupert. Thus, look to your pocket book. I think what we all have to expect to come down the pike is drug coverage complete. Quite a few countries do that for all now. :C

RE: Question for Canadian seniors

I am reading this question to be about all insurance, especially, if you can stay in your home as opposed to being in a seniors residence. At 72 I have many reasons to be paying close attention to the issue. This will vary province to province. Health care may be national, but it is really delivered by the provinces. Frankly, I'd rather not go to a seniors home! Got that.... ever. It is well known that the actual $ are less for a person in their own home. & the chat of politicians and health care managers, academics, etc. is getting closer to that goal----for all that much depends upon the individuals needs. ----------- In about 4 to 6 weeks I will need temporary operation recovery home care. Then I also have plans to travel. I know driving myself is pretty much this year, next year and the year after. After that I'll be 75. & insurance rates sky rocket, I'm told. & travel insurance outside of Canada gets higher faster. I'd say scout around. I don't know at what point it's a good idea to consider moving provinces, be check what provinces say. I moved when I retired. Why? well, that reason for much of outmigration from Newfoundland - the cost of getting to and from there, i.e., not health. But that move may prove to have health benefits. Or the population density in relation to delivering home care may be very important to what a province is willing to do. :C

RE: Going to Canada and returning to U.S. with dogs

This year is one of those years when you need to be extra careful about pet food. Buy a brand that you can buy on both sides of the border. You see, there is bird flu around. & poultry is often used as protein in pet food. Thus, if the border stations are likely to be told to implement the 'confiscate' regulation, that's when bird flu is around. If your pet is on a prescription diet, carry the documentation from your vet. :C

RE: New Foundland

If you're going to visit you need to spell it right ;) One word. Newfoundland. Definitely, more later. Blasted software took out 10 minutes of keying. Lived there 24.5 years. You're retired, right. So, arrive there in May, head for the iceberg alley, if it's a good iceberg year like 2007 AND 2015. Leave after Labour Day. Yeah sure you can take in some other places en route. & if you think I'm kidding, pm RobandDi, who have spent several summers on Newfoundland. :B
