MMM: Stop Staring At My Kielbasa

Mostly Madison Mondays* – a howdoyoudo from my hometown of Madison, Wisconsin
*The days between arctic tundra and hostile mosquito takeover are fleeting.
MMM will span all days of the week while spring remains.*

Milwaukee, why you gotta be so awesome?



Father’s Day took us back to Milwaukee for Polish Fest ’14, a mecca for all things dill, vinegar and smoked pork.

“Milwaukee has the fourth-largest Polish population in the U.S. at 57,485 (9.6% of the city’s population), ranking behind New York City, Chicago and Philadelphia. The city holds Polish Fest, an annual celebration of Polish culture and cuisine.” – Wikipedia

I am Polish on my father’s side, Slovac on my mother’s and hungry on the inside.  We came for the food but stayed for the possibility of a nap, a cable-car skyride and kettle corn.


I need to clarify that this is not mine. Ketchup on a kielbasa is an abomination. ABOMINATION! But a beefstick in a bloody mary? Bravo.

Polish Polish Polish Polish Polish


Speaking of things that are delicious . . .

Hitting the on-ramp to return home, Kris and I agreed that we always have a good time in Milwaukee.  Thank you bigger, badder, bolder neighbor to the east.  You are the kielbasa to Madison’s boiled cheese pierogi and we love you.


Until next time,

You Polish-Indian Wisconsin Explorers
