It happens each November when cold and warm wind team up to create waves that are unpredictable, turbulent, and simply awe-inspiring. Whether you prefer to call it The Gales of November or The Lake Superior Storm Season – it’s something you’ve got to see to believe. Book with Odyssey and watch Mother Nature put on a show.

The end of October ushers in Halloween – one of my favorite holidays. It’s usually a chilly night around these parts, so my sensibilities turn to warm enriching stews. We will call this recipe Spooky Stew, in honor of the eerie evening, and use of the wild game to give it a rich unctuous flavor. You can customize this recipe to suit the ingredients you have nearby.
The recipe can be prepared ahead at this point.
