This month we'll be featuring the city of Montreal. A little unknown fact is that the inn is only 90 minutes from this spectacular city.

Many of our guests, while staying at the inn, plan day trips to Montreal and we are able to provide them with information on events, festivals, shopping, maps, etc.  Jacquie is originally from Montreal, and is therefore an excellent resource.  For more information you can link to Montreal E-Guide, a comprehensive guide with everything you need to know before and while visiting this cosmopolitan city.

If you would like us to feature information on a particular interest of yours, we'd be glad to hear from you.

Grandma's Treat  

An old recipe, which was prepared by the farmer's wife in the evening,
and baked it in the morning while finishing chores in the barn.

Yield: 8 servings

9 eggs beaten
2 cups milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 1/2 loaves of 1" cubed bread

1 cup melted butter
2 cups brown sugar
3 tablespoons maple syrup
2 cups of chopped walnuts

  1.  In a large bowl, combine eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, maple syrup, mix well.
  2. Grease a 9 X 13 baking dish. Fill the dish with cubed bread slices. so the bottom is covered, and fill to the top.
  3. Pour the egg mixture over the cubed bread, cover and refrigerate overnight.
  4. In the morning, mix the topping ingredients, and spread evenly over the cubed bread.
  5. Heat oven to 350 F and bake until puffed and golden, about 1 hour.



Hi Again Folks:

Regular readers of my column know how happy I am to be here at the Inn. I'm treated just as well as the guests - maybe even better. My folks think of me as a son - not an adopted son. I really lead a dog's life.

I suppose though it's just doggie nature to have at least one complaint. It's simply this. Every month Jacquie offers a wonderful recipe in the space next to mine. In fact, next to my monthly musings, it's the most popular part of the newsletter. And that's fine. But what of those doggie readers and guests ? We eat. We have appetites. We have discriminating tastes (if you don't believe me, just check out your dog's reaction when you place before him Kibbles and Bits rather than Iams). Aren't we entitled now and then to a recipe directed to us ? I think so. As a result of some humilitating begging on my part, the folks have allowed me to submit a recipe - it's a real knockout - and healthy too.

So now that I have vented my feelings I submit the following for your dog's approval.

-Peanut Butter Crunches

  • 3 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/2 Cups Rolled Oats
  • 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 1/2 Cups Milk
  • 1 1/4 Cups Peanut Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Molasses

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Combine the flour, oats and baking powder in a large bowl. In a blender or food processor, mix milk, peanut butter and molasses until smooth and add to dry ingredients. Kneed the ingredients together using your hands. Roll dough out to desired thickness and cut with cookies cutters. Bake for about 20 minutes. Check while cooking and turn if needed.

Surrounded by water and brightened by 650 parks and green spaces, Montréal's island city is many cities in one. The second largest French-speaking city in the world, Montréal is a great combination of old world charm and big city excitement.

Explore one of the city's many quartiers; the artistic Plateau Mont-Royal, and the Latin Quarter with its colorful wall murals, mansard roofs, spiraling stairs and outdoor cafes; the multi-ethnic Main, Chinatown with its pagodas and apothecaries, Little Italy with its markets and cappucino shops. Take a ride in a horse drawn carriage, or spend an afternoon exploring the city's chic boutiques and bistros. Ride the métro, drop by the Insectarium for a look at rare insects from more than 100 countries, or visit the island playground of Parc des Îles with its beach, cycling paths and amusement park.

Montréal is a hot spot for talent in all the arts: visual arts, music, dance, comedy, theater and cultural festivals. It is also a world film-making capital. Choose from one of the city's hundreds of restaurants, or head to the Casino de Montréal, one of the ten largest in the world.
