My mom’s side of the family is Ukrainian which makes me by default 50% Ukrainian (and the rest very much a UK mutt). I thank those genes profusely for my narrow nose and penchant for perogies, so I decided to pay a little homage to my roots last night with some Eastern European cuisine.
On the menu was:
- Baked perogies with paprika and seasonings (simply spray a baking tray with some EVOO spray and sprinkle perogies with paprkia and whatever seasonings turn your crank. Bake at 425 for about 9 minutes per side, flip halfway).
- Sweet and sour red cabbage (pour from jar into pot and heat! Add some applesauce to make sweeter and bacon for salt if desired)
- Peppers and onions with sauteed Turkey Kielbasa (slice peppers and onions and sausage and saute til a tad crisp!)
My, don’t I sound clever! However, as you know, I am somewhat domestically challenged (and a tad lazy) so I am all for taking shortcuts where ever possible. The truth is the perogies were made by Cheemo and the cabbage by Kuehne . Twas all good nonetheless! Cheers(ski!)
