The Prince and I were reminiscing about the "Big Beastly Adventure" and, in particular, the sour cream raisin pie at Olde Towne in South Dakota. Prince decided to try his hand at recreating the dish, using 2 different recipes. While the pies were good, they weren't Olde Towne good. So naturally, after we caught up on a few refreshments (because everyone knows that you have to keep your fluid levels up or you'll make bad decisions), we decided that the only thing to do was to drive back to South Dakota and ask the chef for her recipe.
We leave on August 24th, accompanied by the Prince's family, Sparerib and Shortrib. Our goal is to get back to Philipsburg by way of SD. Along the way, we'll have a look at what Mt. Rushmore looks like from the opposite side. We'll spend a couple of days digging for sapphires in P'burg, and then the Porketta family will head north to visit the West Edmonton Mall, and I will tackle the mountains on the way back to Vancouver.
