    Good morning, everybody…

    There’s custard pie at “Broom Hilda,” today.

    It’s “National Caramel Apple Day,” today, but I figure that after the candy corn yesterday that’s just too much sugar. October is also “National Pretzel Month,” so that’s what I’m going with even if it is the last day of the month.

    From: The New Pennsylvania Dutch Cook Book
    By: Ruth Hutchinson
    Illustrated by: Tim Palmer
    Published by: HARPER & BROTHERS NEW YORK 1958
    Earlier edition published as: The Pennsylvania Dutch Cook Book (1948)
    Library of Congress catalog card number 58-8873

    PRETZELS (No accreditation.)

    1 cup milk
    1/2 cup butter
    1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 yeast cake (2 1/4 teaspoons dry yeast or one envelope)
    1/4 cup lukewarm water
    1 egg white, well beaten
    3 3/4 cups flour
    1 egg yolk

    Scald milk, add butter, sugar, and salt.
    When mixture is lukewarm, stir in yeast softened in warm water, and the egg white.
    Stir in flour gradually, enough to make soft dough.
    Knead dough on floured board for 3 – 4 minutes, cover, and let rise in warm place until doubled.
    Punch down, roll out on floured board.
    Cut into thin strips, finger width, shape into pretzels, pinching ends together.
    Let stand on board until they begin to rise.
    Fill a large, shallow pan half full of water.
    When very hot, not boiling, drop pretzels in, one at a time.
    Cook them under the boiling point on one side, turn and cook on other.
    Drain, brush with beaten egg yolk, sprinkle with coarse salt or caraway seeds.
    Bake on buttered baking sheet in 400° oven 15 minutes.
    The story goes that pretzels are twisted as they are because they represent angels with their arms crossed in supplication.

    Note from me.

    The instructions have been proof read, so I’m guessing that the pretzel is cooked on the first side when it stops rising; that is just a guess, however.



    On this day in 1864, Nevada became the 36th state of the United States. It has not one, but three nicknames. “The Silver State” because of the large silver mining industry in its early days, and “The Battle Born State” because it was admitted to statehood during the Civil War (It was allied with the Union.), and the Sagebrush State after the widespread flower. Indeed, the Sagebrush is the official state flower.< br>
    Nevada’s Capital is Carson City, named after Christopher “Kit” Carson the well known frontiersman and explorer.

    The United States obtained Nevada through the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo at the end of the Mexican American War in 1848. That treaty also brought in land that is now part of Wyoming and Colorado as well as all of California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah. Another major outcome of that treaty was the establishment of the Rio Grande as the border between Mexico and the United States.
    Of the Mexican citizens occupying that land, 90% exercised their option under the treaty to become U.S. citizens with full rights.

    Nevada doesn’t have an official beverage, so you’ll have to toast the beginning of Nevada’s 150th year with Bookers, I guess.

    Good morning.

    johnny great news about the Sox! That must have been awesome to hear all that cheering from blocks away.

    If Alexikakos is pouring Bookers, might as well join in. With some pretzels on the side. *cleo*’s ears must be ringing by now, since the word Bookers has been bandied about.

    Well, it seems as if the rainy season has begun. We had a great run and the best summer and early fall that I can ever recall.

    @The Duke

    You are right, those are all good examples of artist that helped shape rock and roll. If you do not think Lou Reed was a special writer and artist, that is fine with me. I believe he was an influence to many artists who came after him. He earned his spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as did your list.
