      • How cool! My maternal grandparents were all from Poland. We had pierogi and placki — but the pierogi were so much better!!!


      • Lots of Polish food I love, but I don’t have any idea how to spell some of it. One of the Polish foods I liked was a cookie my mom made that was fried and dusted with powdered sugar. I googled Polish cookie. Apparently it’s called chrusciki (which is close to my memory of the pronounciation)

      • Oh, they are so good!

        And … um … yeah … I’ve learned a lot of the Polish terms /spellings by googling “what’s the name of that polish xxxx with the xxxxxx?” 😉

        Did you have “Makowiec” — “mak yoh vyets” — that poppyseed roll? Mmmmm!

      • Mom wasn’t big on cabbage, so I missed out on that — also missed out on “sled-jeh” (the herring? dish) — but she did make an awesome soup that did have prunes in it — delicious stuff — though most people turn their nose up at it just because of the name.

        So cool to talk about Polish food — I’m stuck here in a land with largely German descendants — and they have no idea what I’m talking about. (Mom’s side was from Erie but she met my Dad in college and ended up here.)

      • I love all the stuff with prunes, too. I know what you mean. I grew up on the East Coast. Far more Polish food than there is out here. We do have a Polish center in Seattle, but I”m a vegan now, so much of what they make I can’t eat. I have to cook it for myself.

      • That *would* make it difficult. So much of it is heavy on the eggs/butter/cream/lard. o.O

        But – good for you for making it your own way! I haven’t tried in so long …. sigh ….

      • I am usually able to adapt. I have been a vegetarian for many years, but now I’m lactose intolerant, so I had to cut out the dairy, too. Alas!

I love to hear what you have to say.
