Knik Historic District

Landed myself a cooking job at the Knik Bar & Grill in the Knik (pronounced Ka-Nik) Historic District today. Located at Mile 13.5 of the scenic Knik-Goose Bay Road. A popular route to interior Alaska before Anchorage was even on the map. Dog-mushing is the word out there & the first 15 miles of Knik Road are now designated as the Joe Redington Sr. Memorial Trail in memory of the Father of the Iditarod Sled Dog race. Went on quite a few interviews around the valley and was actually picked to be hired for a couple (one was cooking at an old folks home & another was cooking in a bagel shop) but held out for this job. It was a bold move in this economy I know. But, with the money I saved all summer I could afford to be a bit choosy.

This is the back door to the nice commercial kitchen. Friday night is steak night and I will be grilling on that grill outside. (Weather Permitting!)

Congratulations sister! goinna be a great winter. I'll keep my eyes peeled for some ice skates for the pond outside. Maybe this year we'll actually mush too. Didn't know they renamed it for Joe Sr. A couple of the side roads are named for tim's daughters, Lisa and Laurie circles. They're so lucky to have you there.
