If I don’t eat another pierogi for the next month, I will be completely OK with that after my pierogi making get together last night!
Once a month the church missionaries do something called “Culture Night.” This is something where they can learn more about Polish traditions and cultures while they are serving their missions here. They can go visiting local museums, sporting events, historical sites, classical concerts and such. Well the group here now loves to cook, so they asked me for this months “Culture Night” if they could come over to the house and learn how to make pierogies and Polish dessert. I learned to make pierogies almost 3 years ago when we where visiting Boleslawiec, Poland for one last trip to Poland when we thought we were moving back to the US only to find out 4 months later we were moving to Poland! It still mind boggling when I think about that. But to be honest pierogies are so cheap here and taste delicious so I never make them from scratch, I just get the premade ones from the store.
But I said, what the heck why not! So here is what my house looked like with 9 kids/young adults making 400 pierogies looked like….
I can’t remember the last time I ate that many pierogies in one sitting. Usually at restaurants they come either in a serving of 6 or 9. Then at home since I know they I can just whip a batch in no time, I never eat that much but when you make anything home-made it always tastes 10x better.
Guess what tomorrow’s recipe blog post will be about? PIEROGIES!!!
So is it pierogi, pierog, pierogies or pierogi’s? Yes the Polish language is so fun to translate at times!
