1185a little background...
- Aug 1, 2000Re: the cookbook dedication that I just sent, I thought I'd let you
know that my grandfather Frank J. Musil operated a poultry farm in
Stamford, TX, which at one time was one of the largest in the North &
West Texas area. That's one reason you'll see so many references to
Chickens and eggs. We ate lots of chicken & eggs - Papa couldn't
sell cracked eggs and they couldn't be wasted. So we had eggs fixed
many ways, and my mother made lots of noodles (she still does to this
day, using the bleached-out feed sacks to dry them on).
In the dedication, my parents are Emory and Mary, who lived in
Stamford and helped out on the farm until we moved to Wichita Falls
in 1956. I have many memories of playing in the hatchery and helping
gather eggs in the many chicken houses as a young child.
