We meet Tuesdays at 7:45 pm, at 233 Broadway, Cambridge, as
long as enough people have told me by Monday night that they want
Walk for Hunger
We have again been asked to play for the Walk for
Hunger. This will be on Sunday, May 6. This
year we will be playing from 11 to 4, instead of
our former 10 to 3.
This year it will be mostly a recorder group. We are again
looking for a group that could alternate with us
so that everybody gets good breaks. We’d also
like to recruit some recorder players who like
playing Renaissance dance music to play with us. I’m planning on
just one rehearsal, so they should be reasonably
good sightreaders. Encourage anyone you know who
might be willing to help to talk to me about the details.
If you have keiłbasa, sauerkraut, and mushrooms, you can make bigos. Put them in a pot and simmer until you want to eat them. I sometimes do this in a frying pan for only a few minutes, and call it lazy man’s bigos.
The story is that the hunters left a cauldron of this simmering, and when they caught anything, they added it to the pot.
Above is my grandmother’s recipe, which she contributed to her church cookbook. You notice she adds quite a few things to the basic recipe. The apples are good, and when I have it, I usually use cider instead of the wine and beef broth in her recipe. Notice that she also used cabbage in addition to the sauerkraut.
