Family Recipe Friday.... Saurkraut and Pork Chops

Saurkraut and Pork Chops

My Grandpa Dreher was German, through and through. And as such, he was a real meat and potatoes kind of man! Meals tended to be heavy, as well as protein and carb intensive!

Here's a dish that my Grandma Dreher used to make rather frequently for him.

Saurkraut and Pork Chops

6-8 medium sized pork chops
1 large jar of saurkraut [you can use the kind with caraway seeds if you like]
4-medium potatoes cut into medium sized chunks
1/4 cup medium-brown sugar
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400-degrees farenheit.
Use a 9-x-13 inch baking pan, and lightly grease.
Place pork chops in bottom of pan, in a single layer.
Salt and pepper lightly.
Cover with potato chunks. Then with drained saurkraut.
Sprinkle brown sugar over all.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 1-hour until meat is cooked thoroughly and potatoes are tender.

This is served as a complete meal.

Whenever this is cooking in my house today, I am instantly transported back to my childhood and those memories of Grandma and Grandpa's kitchen!

52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History - Week #17

Week 17. Pets. Did you have any pets as a child? If so, what types and what were their names. Do you have pets now? Describe them as well. If you did not have pets, you can discuss those of neighbors or other family members.

Tucked away in storage are my childhood photographs. Many, many of them are filled with snapshots of our family pets!

My Daddy was a dog man. We ALWAYS had a dog!!!

There was Freckles [a border collie], Flash, a German Shepherd mix, Sandy, a chihuahua, Angel, a purebred German Shepherd who was trained as a narcotics dog, Ughla, one of Angel's pups, Bimbo, an Alaskan husky.

Then there was Fido, a Shetland pony! [Grandpa Dreher helped me to name him!] Grandpa said if he had a pony, he'd name him Fido so that the pony would think he was dog and follow him around like one. And Fido did just that!!! He thought he was a dog. He'd even sit on command!

I had guinea pigs as well. [A male and female, and I named them Pint and Half-Pint.] Unfortunately, they were supposed to be two males, but when Mama came down one morning to find 22 squirming little guinea pig babies under Half-Pint, I was told the guinea pigs had to go!!! All 22 babies made it to "toddler" age, and we found homes for them, as well as Pint and Half-Pint.

Then there was Charlie. My pet turtle! Charlie eventually got some kind of fungus and died. But not before he outgrow two turtle terrariums! [He was about 11 when he died.]

And then there were the parakeets, Pete and Repeat. Repeat didn't speak. But Pete did! He had a vocabulary of about 50 words or so. He would whistle and say "What a babe!" [Mama didn't like that at all!] And he would say "Go-o-o-lly!" [Mimicking the old Gomer Pyle show!] And "Na-na-na-na-na-na, Na-na-na-na-na-na Batman!" [Mimicking the starting song to the old Adam West "Batman" television show.]

Almost all of our pets were rescued from animal shelters. I suppose the only ones that weren't were Angel and her pup, Ughla.

I still have pets. A dog and a cat. They are also rescue animals.

Here is Fred. Fred isn't male. Fred is a female. Texican named the cat, thinking he was getting a male, only to be fooled when it turned out to be a male instead!
Fred is a whopper of a cat, weighing in at almost 20 pounds! But she is one of my babies!!!
And the other is...

...Chica, [she was named Chicquita when we got her in Dallas, and I shortened it to Chica]. She was rescued from a family who had abused her terribly. But don't let this shy, dainty facade fool you! She has a nasty little temper, and we can't allow her near small children [it was an 8 and a 10 year old boy who had abused her!]
Chica is a Mama's doggy. She has never bitten me, although that doesn't mean she hasn't fussed [growled] and "back talked" to me! I pretty much let her run the house as she see fits, since she had such a horrible start in life! I want her to know she is loved and will never be abused again.
You've seen those dogs on television who "talk"?
Chica is one such doggy.
I've taught her to say, "I Love You". [It's so cute!!!]

When we got Chica, I was traveling on the road with my husband as he drove a big rig cross-country. Chica was not house broken, and I house broke her on the road! [She was such an easy doggy to house train!] I simply purchased the liver treats used by dog trainers everywhere. If she did her thing when we stopped, she got a treat. If she didn't, no treat! It wasn't too long before she got the idea! And in 9-months on the road, she only ever had 2 accidents!!!

At Christmas I dress Chica and Fred up in costumes and take their pictures.
Here's Christmas 2010 snapshots.
[2009 I was able to get them in the same photo, but not 2010!]


As you can tell.... my pets are my pride and joy!

Kind of like my grandkids.
But that's for another post!

Tombstone Tuesday - Dorothy Eloise Bean

Eloise Bean
daughter of
J.M. & Ada Bean
Oct. 22, 1923
Feb. 14, 1925

Eloise was the sweet little daughter of John Monroe Bean and his [2nd] wife, Ada Burdette.

Born Dorothy Eloise Bean, this little one was born into a home already suffering the loss John's first wife [Blanche], to tuberculosis, and the death of one son, Samuel Maxwell Bean [died 16 Dec 1923] to whooping cough just shortly after her birth. Her older sister, Pauline, was ravaged with tuberculosis.

Pauline was enamored with her new baby sister, and the family did not appear to be aware that her closeness would indeed infect the child. Pauline was especially fond of cradling the baby and loving her she did so often. Pauline was 21 at the time of Eloise's birth.

When little Eloise contracted tuberculosis, one can only imagine the heartbreak of her mother, Ada, but also of rapidly failing sister, Pauline, who so loved the child.

Eloise died on Valentine's Day 1925. And Pauline lived but a short while longer, dying on 27 June that same year.

John Monroe Bean was my grandmother, and this little angel was my aunt.

52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History - Restaurants

Week 16. Restaurants. What was your favorite local restaurant as a child? Where was it located, and what was your favorite meal? Did you know the staff personally? What is your favorite restaurant now?
I didn't have to think very hard about this one!!!

I grew up in the Naval seaport of Norfolk, Virginia [Dad was career Navy]. Some of my earliest memories are of eating seafood in the restaurants there!

My favorite was one Fass Brother's Fish House, located at Sinclair Circle.
[I found this vintage Fass Brothers sign on the net!]

Meals were served in family style fashion, with huge platters of food brought to your table!

On birthday's and special occasions, "Where would you like to go to eat?" was often the wuestion asked in our house. The answer was invariable... "Fass Brother's!" The food was excellent! And as you can see from the prices on the board... really great prices! [And you could eat all you want!]

There was one addendum added on birthdays.

After filling our tanks at Fass Brother's Fish House, we had to stop by Shoney's on the way home to purchase an entire...
strawberry pie!

Oh my! Nothing was as good as ending a meal with this delicious treat!!! And nobody did it as good as Shoney's!!!

Alas, during my last visit to Norfolk.... Fass Brother's Fish House is no longer there. And even though I've tried from several different Shoney's restaurants to purchase the same delicious strawberry pie. [ad yes, I admit it's still good], it's simply not as good as the ones they had when I was a kid growing up! They simply don't compare!


Well, I love our local Applebee's.
There the food is delicious, and the drinks flow. All at a price we can afford. [That's always a plus!]
I also enjoy a little restaurant near our home. It's located at Hart's Run, just off the I-64 exit.
Granny's Restaurant is a small place, with only seating for about 60-75 patrons at a time. They are open 7 days a week, and are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And the food is simply put, down-home cooking. [I've personally known some of the cooks over the years, and eaten at their homes!] Best yet... the prices can't be beat! You won't find a better bargain! If you're ever down our way... you've got to stop in. If you're not coming through at meal time, at least stop and have a piece of pie and cup of coffee!!! They make the best lemon meringue or coconut creme pie's in the world!!!

What was your favorite restaurant when you were growing up?

What is your favorite restaurant today???

She married John [Johan] Benzel while still in Prussia.

The immigrated to America, arriving in New York on 23 May 1864 with their two oldest children, Amelia [Emilie] and Matilda [Mathilda] who were 3 years and 9 months of age respectively.

The couple went on to have six more children: Josephine, Minnie, Louis, John, August and William.

I do have one photograph of Wilhelmine...

Week 14. Spring. What was spring like where and when you grew up? Describe not only the climate, but how the season influenced your activities, food choices, etc.

This was certainly a favorite assignment of mine so far!

My growing years were spent mainly in Norfolk, VA [the city by the sea!]. And we lived only a very short [few blocks] from the beautiful Azalea Gardens.

When these gardens began blooming, we knew that Spring had officially "sprung"!

Canals were dug from the bay inlet to allow for canal tours on boats through these gardens! But it's the beautiful walking tours through the botanical gardens that one doesn't want to miss!!! Growing up, this was a yearly spring excursion for Mom, my sister and I! We would pack a picnic hamper with our lunch, walk through the gardens and then settle down for a picnic. Usually this consisted of Mama's fried chicken! And believe me... that was a treat!

Spring always heralded the first picnic of the season, and that has always meant bringing in the new season with one of my favorites, potato salad! Yum!

But as I have grown a bit more mature in my tastes, today the herald of spring comes with the first taste of freshly cut asparagus from Dad's asparagus beds! But not steamed, or boiled.... no, no! For it to truly represent spring, one must drizzle the stalks with olive oil, shake on a little sea salt, and these delectables must be cooked out of doors on the grill!!!

Now that spells spring to me!!!

Well... that and....

...the arrival of Cadbury Creme Eggs in the stores!!!

Saturday Night Genealogy Fun.. The 1940 Census

Randy's offered us yet another bit of fun this Saturday evening!!!

1)  Know that the 1940 United States Census will be released for public viewing on the National Archives website on Monday, 2 April 2012 (366 days from today!).  My understanding is that, when it is first released, that there will be no indexes available - we will have to search them the "old way" - with known addresses, finding enumeration districts from maps and websites, and then go page-by-page to find our folks.  Eventually, there will be indexes available, but we don't know how long after the release that will be.

2)  Which of your ancestral family members will be in the 1940 census?  Consider not just your ancestors, but also their siblings. 

3)  Where did your ancestral family members live in 1940 on Census Day?  Have you found all of the addresses in city directories or telephone books?  Please list the ones you know the addresses of, and the ones you need to find addresses for.

4)  Tell us about it in a blog post of your own, a comment to this blog post, or on a Facebook note or comment.

1. Unfortunately for most of my rural family in 1940, there won't be street addresses, and I will have to rely upon known farming neighbors in order to locate them!

2. This will be the very first released census that will contain both of my parents!!! Dad in West Virginia and Mom in Indiana! [I thrilled when I first found my grandparents in the Census records, I can only imagine seeing my parents names!!!]

3. Since neither of my parents homes had telephones in 1940, nor did their rural communities have directories, this really won't help me alot! Both families received their mail simply marked "General Delivery".

It doesn't promise to be an easy task to look through those un-indexed census records! But it's one in which I am raring at the bit to get into!!!

A precious one from us has gone
  A voice we lived is stilled;
