Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
One possible source for the name Milwaukee is the Sioux Indian word "Miniwaki" meaning "firewater". Grandpa Frank Bastian (and for awhile, his father Wilhelm) worked at the Schlitz brewery in Milwaukee for 37 years. This recipe uses cheese and beer, 2 of Wisconsin's favorites.
