LINK - Volunteer for a study on Wolverines.

Volunteer Help Is Needed

wolverine-picture.jpgIf you're looking for a unique volunteering opportunity -- a group of researchers have the perfect opportunity for you. They want strong men and women, who love the outdoors -- and can carry a beaver carcass long distances. They're trying to learn more about the highly elusive wolverine.

Tony Clevenger is spear-heading the study and his team is looking at the migration patterns of wolverines in Banff, Yoho and Kootenay National Parks -- and the impact of the Trans Canada Highway on their movement.

Here is the website to visit for more details and to volunteer.

Apple and Cheddar French Toast

Flavours of sweet apple and savoury cheese combine to create an irresistible brunch favourite.

2 apples, peeled and diced
Butter
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk
1 loaf brioche bread (day old)
1/2 cup grated aged cheddar
Icing sugar, for serving
Maple syrup, for serving

In a small skillet over medium heat, sauté the apples in 1 to 2 tbsp. butter. Add cinnamon and cook apples until tender and golden, about 5 to 7 minutes. Set aside.

Beat eggs and milk together in a shallow baking dish or bowl. Set aside.

Cut bread into 8 thick slices.

Spoon the apples evenly over 4 of the bread slices. Then sprinkle evenly with cheddar cheese. Sandwich with remaining slices.

Dip each French toast sandwich into the egg mixture until evenly soaked.

Heat griddle to medium heat. (Alternatively, cook French toast in batches using a large skillet.) Add 2 tbsp. butter. When butter melts, add the French toast sandwiches. Cook until golden brown and crisp on both sides and cheese is melted, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
 
If needed, keep French toast warm in a 250 degree F. oven. Serve with a dusting of icing sugar and drizzle of maple syrup.

Yield: 4 servings.
