After an interview with his granddaughter about his childhood on a farm in Oklahoma, Lyell Thompson came back to the booth with some homemade Czechoslovakian treats called kolaches. Lyell’s wife had made them in honor of his granddaughter’s visit. Kolaches are pastries with fruit, nut, or cheese fillings on a breadroll. Several towns including Prague, Oklahoma, have annual Kolache Festivals. The kolaches Lyell brought us were poppy seed and lemon. Yum!
