- 3 cups of sifted flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons baking powder
- vegetable oil or lard
- Mix half the flour with the remaining dry ingredients.
- Add water until the mixture becomes thick, "like a paper mache paste".
- Add more flour until the dough feels like a soft earlobe.
- Heat the oil or lard over a medium-high heat until very hot, but not smoking.
- Break off small pieces of the dough and flatten each to the size of your palm, about 1/2-inch thick.
- Place the pieces in the hot oil, turn after about 3 minutes, or when golden brown.
- Place the bannock on a paper towel to soak up the excess grease.

After realizing that northern Saskatchewan lot prices were out of range, we inquired at Arlington Beach about the possibility of acquiring a place down there. They had an old rustic cabin that needed some work but was structurally sound.
We purchased it for $250 at time when cabin prices in Saskatchewan were averaging $300,000. It is small but was a good deal. This weblog is an attempt to document life at the cabin, a place to put our architectural links, and share some photography and stories about life at the lake.
