    Default NOM of the week

    Today my big foray into cooking was the "beef and brats" thing. My
    NH&G Book says it's a "classic American dish". I had never heard of it
    before, but it's pretty good, I must say. But that's not the point.

    Lately, I've been in an East European Appreciation Mode...... Next
    weekend I think I'm going to try to pull off either Bigos or Gołąbki.
    The latter seems to be a common household thing here in Wisconsin,
    which was settled largely by Poles, Ukrainians and Czechs (as well as
    Germans).

    Otherwise, I've been learning all kinds of Russian and Polish folk
    music. On Youtube it's played on accordion, but the songs transfer
    very well to my Hammond Organ. Katyusha, Korobeiniki, Cyganeczka
    Zosia, Czarne Oczy.... all very beautiful songs that speak to me.

    Other than being purportedly Jewish, I'm not of East European
    descent.... but it doesn't mean that I can't still connect with East
    European people on a human level. I like to think that in the music,
    I can *feel* the same things that made them choose the notes for the
    melodies. Music is one of the few things that unites us all as a
    common people.

    We might be different on the outside, but we're all the same on the
    inside, right?

    No you are not Blake! :-)
    You just have a warped sense of humor.
    That (to me) is one of your more endearing qualities. <g>

    Maybe you were Eastern European in a previous life! Could be that's
    why you identify so closely.....could be....

    look up kleizmer music....definitely Yiddish and definitely Eastern
    European. It's an acquired taste, but one you might want to indulge, just
    once. Iff'n you need a recipe, I just updated my Polish and Russian
    collection of cookbooks not too long ago. Just let me know what you are
    looking for.

    I beg to differ... My Dad used to make Bigos and Golabki sometimes.
    However, I wouldn't eat either they both contain cabbage - blech.

    is there a c.d. (or perhaps web site) you would recommend to a klezmer
    neophyte? i think there's enough jazz in there that i would find it
    interesting.

    I was just putting "kleizmer" and "kleismer music" into Youtube last
    night. There is definitely a strong Jazz component. There wer a few
    tunes that I would describe as "aggressive elevator music", and I
    don't mean that pejoratively. I've only heard a handful so far, so
    I'm not going to say whether I like it or not. I generally like
    darker music (due to being all ugly and twisted on the inside), and
    after a few weeks of the aforementioned folk music, i might need a
    buffer or some sort of transition to recalibrate to the more fun,
    lively sound of the Kleismer.

    Definitely worth giving a shot though. I appreciate the heads up from
    Ms. Tadrzynski.

    Also,
    I'll gladly take a recipe for either Bigos or Gołąbki (or both ) if
    it's not too much trouble. I realize that Bigos is like chili in that
    it doesn't have a definitive recipe, but you've got to start
    somewhere.

    Thanks!
