There’s snow on the ground and a howling wind coming round the corner of my office. I am preparing to travel to Wishek today for another Tri-County Tourism Meeting. It’s been a busy year and difficult to keep up with all the tasks between my two jobs, my business and our Women Behind the Plow interviews.
Today, I will be interviewing Violet Diegel. My last interview was with Alice Kramer from Linton. It never fails that part of the process involves food. Actually sweet wedding kuchen and goodies you would never find outside of German Russian Country.
Hospitality and food are two components of this society that have continued through the generations. My daughter once asked me why we are always thinking about food, planning our next meal, comparing recipes, sharing recipes and keeping traditions alive through food. My reply, “Because, my dear, to Germans from Russia, food is love.”
So my friends, if you are in the area, we are meeting at the Big Screen in Wishek today. If not, trust me when I say we will be sharing the love.
PS: IF you are thinking you want a first-edition copy of Ewiger Saatz, please order it today. WE are please to announce we have officially sold more than 75% of the printing.
If you know of someone who would consent to an interview, photo, video taping, etc. as part of our Women Behind the Plow project, please fill out the contact form below:
