Lenten tradition

For Jim Norman and others who enjoy foods not commonly encountered in chain restaurants.
About this time of year fish fries and other forms of fund raising public dinners in all of the small and large cities and towns in our area.
West of our home about 30 miles the terrain gets very hilly for several miles. This is the country settled by Bohemian and Slovakian immigrants in thr 1870s. It is on the same approximate latitude as the homeland and the country is similar. Hence the affectionate term" The Bohemian Alps"

Wine, piestengel (rhubarb) or possibly dandelion. Appetizer, morel mushrooms , vegetable, parsnips fried in butter. Dessert. As always, chocolate cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream
After dinner drink Peppermint schnapps. Now you're a real Bohemie

I had dandelion wine many years ago. I think they got confused with the turpentine bottle.

It was very fresh.

Dave, I was with you all the way......until the Peppermint Schnapps. C'mon now, there are so many better alcohols to be had, ones of quality that don't need sugar and artificial flavour added.

On the topic of schnapps, a buddy of mine always brings a bottle of real schnapps home from Germany after his annual family visit. Now, that is good stuff. A good fruit alcohol, with no added sugars. Almost craving a shot now, early in the morn.

Hi: Iowa Dave... Puts a hole new spin on the term "Ball joint". Down in the finger lakes of New York State they'd serve wine from the Pompous Ass Winery. Alf

Having lived through years of Lenten fasting and abstaining from eating meat ,the local fish fry was a much loved and anticipated treat on a Friday evening but during Lent the consumption of alcohol was not part of the ritual. I remember getting up at midnight on Holy Saturday and enjoying a meal of fried chicken with my Dad because Easter had arrived. There is a church on the West side of St Paul Mn that has supposedly served over 5000 fish dinners on a Friday evening during Lent. The line starts about 2 in the afternoon !!

Steve, couldn't help but notice the url on the bottom of your post, which looks to be searching for "Handi-Hitch" in Maplewood. Unfortunately, they are closed. I have been using Burnsville Hitch instead. But would like to find something in St. Paul. So far, I have not found a good trailer place on this side of the river.
