A Real Newfie Scoff Dinner

On June 27, 2018, we attended a real Newfie Scoff at the local Canadian Legion in St. Anthony, Newfoundland.  It came complete with local music. Kathy had a fisherman's platter.  David had a Jigs Dinner: salted beef, bread pudding, peas pudding, carrot, turnip, potato and - of course - mustard pickles. We finished up by sharing a bakeapple (that's NOT baked apples) parfait.

True Newfoundland experience. Yum!

We sat with six motorcyclists - four from Rhode Island and two from Ottawa, Canada.  They were doing a motorbike tour of Newfoundland in honor of a man - the husband of a woman in the group and father of another woman in the group - who recently died.  One of the highlights of the dinner, other than some great local entertainment, was a Screech-In, and our friends volunteered to get indicted - I mean, inducted.

To get Screeched In, you must, among other things, drink like a Newfie --

-- dance like a Newfie --

-- and KISS THE COD!

Our friends were great sports.  They definitely had the most fun of all present, but gave us a rollicking good time, sharing in their experience.
