Kathy Pinna Yeah, I think it was Mukilteo. It did have a sauna, in the basement. I think that was the one that Carol brought the raccoons into. You, Grandpa, and Ted went clamming. Wonderful views of the Sound.

Kathy Pinna Per unregistered person (not my family): Josephine Dembke born circa 1850 emigrated from Prussia via Ellis Island. I believe that she was married to Herman Dembke born circa 1854 also through Ellis Island from Prussia. Leo Dembke born circa 1915 to in NYC was Married first to Lilley, then to Hazel. Hazel & Leo passed away in Tucson AZ. They also had a farm in upstate NY. In 1940 Census, you can find Leo & Lilley (1st wife of Leo) (sp?) living out on his mother Carrie’s property on Long Island, NY. She, Carrie, owned a store and also contracted to feed the farm workers. Leo served in the army on Plum Island.

Kathy Pinna This was originally a recipe from the Betty Crocker Cookbook that my family has made for at least 40 years and has changed a bit over time. I've added the wine and ketchup but you can omit that if you wish. (But try it - you'll like it!) :) 1/2 cup minced onion 1/4 cup butter 1 lb ground beef 1 clove garlic (I use 2) 2 tablespoons flour 2 teaspoons salt (I use 1 tsp) 1/4 teaspoon accent (hence the less salt!) 1/4 teaspoon pepper 1/4 teaspoon paprika (I omit this) 1 lb (or can) sliced mushrooms Saute onion in butter until golden, add garlic and saute a bit. Stir in beef, brown, and add the rest of the above ingredients. (If the mushrooms are raw, be sure to saute all of these ingredients for a few minutes. If canned, you can just go to the next step.) Add: 1 can cream of mushroom soup 1/4 cup (or so) white wine (although red wine works in a pinch) 1 tablespoon ketchup (or you can use tomato paste) Simmer (uncovered) for 10 minutes and add 1 cup sour cream. Heat through, but be sure not to simmer with the sour cream! Serve over rice or noodles. It's good and it only takes about 20 minutes - the same time as it takes the rice. Easy, quick, and superb tasting!

Kathy Pinna This is also called "Danish Pancake" and I bet that there are lots of other names for it, too. I've made it for over 30 years - I got it from a friend. This is my son's favorite breakfast! 4 eggs 3/4 teaspoon salt 2 1/2 cups milk blend together, then add: 1 cup flour and stir (there will be some lumps - if you use a blender, don't blend too well. The texture will be wrong.) Put a 9x13 pan in a 425 degree oven for about 10 minutes. Take the pan out and put 4 tablespoons butter in the pan, letting the butter melt. Then add the batter. Bake at 425 for about 25 minutes - until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. The pancake will rise, then fall as it cools. That's normal. Cut into squares and top with syrup and/or fruit. (Our favorite is bananas and maple syrup.)

Kathy Pinna This is what my mother told me: Her father, George Benning, died when she was 15 years old. He had owned a Chevrolet dealership (Reed-Benning Chevrolet) in Bremerton, Washington. When the will was read, his widow (my grandmother)and daughter discovered just how generous he had been. Evidently, he had heard that 2 families were going to lose their homes. (This was during World War II and Bremerton had a large Naval shipyard.) He secretly bought the homes and the families had been making payments to him as they could. In his will, he left each family the home that they were living in, forgiving the rest of the payments. He was a well-known man in his town, but few knew how much he touched other's lives. Although I never knew him, I am proud to be descended from him.
