As we pulled into Keji National Park this afternoon, we stopped at the Visitor Center to get the Xplorer book, the Canadian equivalent to the Junior Ranger program. One of the activities was to bake some bread over the campfire the way the Mi'kmaw people who'd lived in the area for four thousand years had. . I cut a couple rounds off a downed birch branch behind camp, sanded them smooth and drilled two small holes in the bases so they could stick on the end of our marshmallow toasting forks. We formed the dough around the plugs and toasted them over coals in attempt to make little "cups" to fill with salami and cheese for the kids. While it sorta worked, for ourselves we opted to press the rest of the dough into the bottom of a silicon 8x8 baking pan, layer in shredded kale with a couple slivers of butter on top, pour 6 beaten eggs over it and sprinkle with cheese to bake in the oven. . It was delicious. Planning on bringing our recipe to the next meeting of the elders. #airstreamkitchen #mikmawquiche #xplorer #kejimkujiknationalpark
