We promised poached pears, and poached pears there will be, but we’ve had a change in the lineup so we’re showcasing gingerbread people from the cookbook Holiday Cookies: Showstopping Recipes to Sweeten the Season for our first Great MRSPL Bakeoff challenge! Pete and Claudia went head to head to see who could do it better. Here’s Claudia strutting her stuff in the kitchen! More on Pete’s adventure in the kitchen in the next post!

Welcome to the Great MRSPL Bakeoff where library staff went head to head making desserts from the library’s cookbook collection to see who could get closer to the original recipe. It’s a baking competition based solely on looks, so over the next two weeks we’ll post the results and we’re asking our lovely patrons to be the judges and vote on who got closer!
First up tomorrow is poached pears, so stay tuned!

In October of 1956 students and other people discontented with the repressive Soviet regime in Hungary revolted. The Hungarian Uprising was brutally put down and as a result 200,000 refugees fled for other parts of the country and also into Austria and the United States.
In December, the George Mason Key Club played music to raise money for these refugees in front of Falls Church Jewelers (adjacent to Brown's Hardware in the 100 block of West Broad Street). Quentin Porter was there to capture the moment.
The next month, in January of 1957, Time magazine made the Hungarian Freedom Fighter 'Man of the Year.'
