Thread: Ready for sauerkraut and pork day?

  1. #11
    My Grandpa was born in 1898 amd lived to be 98. The last 2 years were in a nursing home and a couple before that assisted living, but he was still tarring his roof in the hot sun when he was 90. (His horrified neighbors called my dad)
    He lost his farm in SD during the depression and came to MN and worked for a large farming family for many years and was treated like family.
    As long as I could remember he ate fried potatoes, 2 eggs, toast all fried in bacon grease along with more bacon. He could peel a potato and not have any white of the potato on the peel and was quite critical of how others peeled their potatoes.
    I was only a year old when my Gramma died. They had adopted an ophaned niece and he raised her to be my favorite Aunt.
    Sorry for my rambling story, but is what the thought of bacon grease brought up.
    One day while in assisted living he complained to my dad they would not give him any bacon. Dad found out it was because he was put on a low soduim diet.
    My dad said he is 95 years old-let him have as much bacon as he wants.

    That's okay Obie. My grand father fed a community of 15 families during the depression. He kept them in potatoes and cabbage they made into sauerkraut to survive the winters. He delivered baskets and boxes of veggies to all in need along his milk route with a horse and wagon. He gave it to them free. He fled what is now Slovakia and knew what poverty was and how to deal with it. The stories of his kindness are still remembered by the by the oldtimers in the area.

    SCI 55, you could appreciate today's meal than Pork Shoulder, kraut, and dumplings. The house was ready to explode, and there's still plenty left over to fry. My last name should leave no question of ethnicity.

    Yeah? And how about sautéed red cabbage, with raisins and apple?

    No carp here. Only klobasa and nut roll (kolachy?) this year.

    About ten years ago we collectively decided to abolish the carp in favour of schnitzel and potato salad. And cookies of course. Mountains of cookies.

    We usually do the pork, dumplings, and sauerkraut around Easter. I remember stomping the homemade stuff as a kid.
