- Measure flour, salt, and baking powder into a large bowl. Stir to mix. Pour melted butter and water over flour mixture. Stir with fork to make a ball.
- Turn dough out on a lightly floured surface, and knead gently about 10 times. Pat into a flat circle 3/4 to 1 inch thick.
- Cook in a greased frying pan over medium heat, allowing about 15 minutes for each side. Use two lifters for easy turning. May also be baked on a greased baking sheet at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 25 to 30 minutes.

|Here's where the play was. Sorry the pictures are|
blurry- we almost missed the bus!
While most of the plot of this play would have been lost on a foreigner like me here’s where the Tiger Lillies come in. After every main event in the play the band would burst into english song summarizing what had just happened. It was eerily and beautifully done principally with accordion, drums and a stand-up bass. There was also a live brass band that supplied music for the rest of the play.
Here’s a little clip of the wonderful music that we got to hear.
Rotary Sturm (weak but very tasty wine, more like juice really) and
Kastanien Braten (chestnut roast)
|Pretty cold fall weather (pun intended)|
|They always have baked goods at every event|
Hasselnuss Kuchen und Apfel Kuchen

Going to the Rotary trip to Wien this weekend. Hopefully will get to see some museums, even though there are non on the itinerary. I think we can change that...
