On Saturday, while Margie and I were out at the Texas Wendish Heritage Museum in Serbin I picked up a copy of Ray Spitzenberger’s book, It Must Be the Noodles. Next weekend I’m flying out to South Carolina and I figured it would make for nice reading on the plane.
Well, yesterday afternoon I got to thinking I’d take a quick look and maybe read a little bit into it.
Let me tell you, it was like our trip to the City Meat Market in Giddings for lunch on Saturday where we went with the intention of bringing some home. I kept looking at the sausage and thinking “I think I’ll just eat a little more” and next thing I knew it was all gone.
Okay, I didn’t finish the book just yet, but let’s just say I’m going to have to find something else to read on the way to South Carolina.
As of yesterday (Sunday, May 19, 2019), they are on sale on Amazon ($9.99 for the paperback, and $8.99 for the Kindle edition).
Head on over there right now and you’ll get a great collection of stories about growing up Wendish in Lee County, some recipes (I may just have to try to make some of the pickles), and the True Story of how Dime Box came to be known as Dime Box (in more detail than I’ve ever seen before).
