The story goes like this, mom could not get her teenage son to keep his room clean. Dirty dishes and piles of clothing were constantly scattered about the room. She kept telling him that he would end up with mice.
She came upon this idea.
She purchased some black rice and scattered it about his room. When he discovered it she told him it was mouse droppings.
Needless-to-say, his room has been clean ever since.
It’s kolache day at KSWP. Good Friend in the Morning, Tim, happened to go to Ennis over the weekend and had an opportunity to get some real Czech kolaches, not a klobasnek, which is commonly called a kolache in Texas but is a sausage roll.
Kolaches are Czech pastries made of a yeast dough and usually filled with fruit, but sometimes cheese. The ultra-traditional flavors — such as poppy seed, apricot, prune and a sweet-but-simple farmer’s cheese — can be traced back to the pastry’s Eastern European origin.
This morning Good Friends Tim & Kevin will taste test an apricot, cherry, and poppy seed.
