Polish Bigos, Hand-Stretched Apple Strudel and Krysia

My daughter, Krysia, loved Poland. 
When I was in High School
I read about a Polish Dr. 
in the Sunday World Herald
Omaha, Nebraska.
I saved his daughter's name
for my future daughter,

Five years later, I gave birth
Dr. French said, "It's a Krysia."

She started this blog for me May 2005.
In her memory
I share her beloved Poland.

Polish Hunter's Stew

When you can cook prunes, mushrooms,
bacon, cabbage and sauerkraut, 
any game, beef, pork, poultry 
and vegetables together 
and cook the stew outside,
you will draw a crowd 
of hungry people!
Count me in!

Hand-stretched Apple Strudel

We grew up in a community
of fabulous East European cooks.
At Fall Festivals and Celebrations
We waited in line for
duck and roast beef dinners
Kolaches, Strudels,
poppyseed filled sweet rolls
and accordion music

"The past isn't dead. It isn't even past."
My memories are alive and well
Happy New Year's Family, Friends
and Friends to be
