Road side pleasures
I admit to liking odd things–closeups of mechanical devices and such.
In mid December I spent a day learning how to better use my Gammill—here are a few photos around the hotel—a large construction site next door–and then on the road home—right outside a bakery where I found poppyseed kolaches–both open and closed.
My mother would make the closed kind–from her mother-in-laws recipe. It required soaking the poppyseeds over night in milk. Unfortunately I do not have that recipe. My grandmother did not work from written recipes–but all from inside her head. She was a tremendous cook–making angel food cake in a woodburning stove.
