German Onion Pie
This may sound a little like ‘stone soup’ or just a way to use up loads of onions in a pie but it really is scrumptious, summer or winter.
These tangy squares will be our travel food—snacking in the car or popping it in the oven to heat as we unpack the hundreds of pounds of gear and food into the home-base cabin. It seems fitting to eat this caraway-sour-cream-onion pie in heart of Old Bohemian northern Wisconsin. Maybe I’ll find a bottle of Green’s gluten free Dubbel Dark Ale along the way to enjoy with it….hmmm, I know at least one pub in Eau Claire that sells it, maybe that will determine our route.
And now what you’ve all been waiting for…
The second prototype made of sparkly stainless steel…
It’s a ski holding bracket for the profile on the waxing table!
He attached bike brakes to cushion the ski while it’s clamped, and when finished you press the wooden knob for a quick release. Love the knob.
The old bracket that came with the profile/table had to be adjusted for each ski and this one clamps the ski with springs so no adjustment is needed. The ends of the profile support the ski tips—Scott did not make those, but there’s always next year for another improvement experiment.
Finally all of you can sleep again after waiting with bated breath for the answer to that little quiz.
Pack pack pack pack pack—I’ll show the crammed vehicle next week.
Bon Voyage to us!!
