Comment on Booyah! by Mike Dietz http://www.drslewis.org/monafaye/2007/09/21/booyah/#comment-60 Wed, 13 Feb 2013 20:30:39 +0000 http://www.drslewis.org/monafaye/wordpress/2007/09/21/booyah/#comment-60 I also lived in New Brighton, MN. In those days, late 1940-50s, the booya was sponsored and run by the old Catholic Church on old Hwy 8. The large pots cooked over night. The bones were not taken out of the stew, and if you were lucky, you even could get a CHICKEN FOOT in your booya. You could eat the booya at large tables set up on the church grounds, and you could also buy a Mason jar or two to take home for later. The recipe they used seemed much like the one above, except that I think there was a little bit of curry powder or Worchester sauce and sugar thrown in. It was great!

Now, 60 years I’m wondering if it would fly in Lake Placid NY.

Comment on Happy Birthday, Mom! by Day Two – A Time to Laugh – He has made everything beautiful in His time. http://www.drslewis.org/monafaye/2007/11/28/happy-birthday-mom/#comment-35 Mon, 29 Nov 2010 14:49:13 +0000 http://www.drslewis.org/monafaye/wordpress/2007/11/28/happy-birthday-mom/#comment-35 […] We humans have a need to connect to the past. We want to know that what we’re doing others before us have done. That’s why I hang my mother’s childhood ornaments. That’s why we look at old pictures and read history books and visit monuments. That’s why I make my grandmother’s soup. […]

We’ve actually packed up our computer for a few days because there just wasn’t enough room for old-fashioned food and new-fangled falderall! We’ll be having the usual wild turkey (the real free range) and, of course, cranberry salad. […]

Comment on Booyah! by L Panure http://www.drslewis.org/monafaye/2007/09/21/booyah/#comment-26 Fri, 26 Sep 2008 13:07:33 +0000 http://www.drslewis.org/monafaye/wordpress/2007/09/21/booyah/#comment-26 Now we’rea talking ~~ it’s not real booyah without the OXTAIL !!

The “Panure Family Booyah” was usually on a Sunday in late September, and the veggie chopping and cooking would start around 6 AM. Dad even had his own booyah kettle, which looked like an oil oil drum with wheels and a stove-pipe coming out the side. Relatives from all sides came over during the course of the day … what a memory!
