A Paul Bunyan Tale

Paul's Dinner

The list of Paul's dinner comes from a former chief cook of the "Backus Lumber Company"

"We worked for three hours to prepare the meal. It consisted of 33 pounds of beef, 1 whole venison, 2 bushels of friend potatoes, 12 loaves of bread each weighing 4 pounds, 7 gallons of coffee, 6 hams, 12 dozen eggs, 678 pancakes made with exactly 1 barrel of buckwheat flower, topped off with 6 gallons of pure maple syrup.''
