Last weekend just flew by! Between working, grocery shopping, making pierogi, quilting and frogging, the weekend was over in a blink of an eye! I’ll explain frogging a little later for those of you that are fortunate to be unfamiliar with it.
Lent is right around the corner, which means it’s also time to make pierogi. My MIL comes from a Polish background, so making pierogi is a tradition. When Scott and I were first together my MIL would make all the pierogi for us. Now that we have a family, she comes to our house and we make them together, including Scott and the girls.
We have a lot of fun, but it’s a lot of work! Not to mention messy. We make the pierogi and Scott is in charge of cleanup.
We used my cute little egg separator I received as my Secret Santa gift from Ellen at the quilt shop Christmas party.
Our pierogi are stuffed with potato and cheese. I’m just pinching the dough together after stuffing one.
I made all the “ugly” pierogi. My MIL’s is on the right and mine is on the left. LOL! She’s a professional!!
Here’s a batch waiting to go in the freezer. Not all of them made it to the freezer. We fried up the the not so nice ones when we were done. Mostly the ones I made. Yummy! Fried in butter then dipped in sour cream!! They are delicious! We will enjoy them on Fridays until Easter. Although, Alyssa requested them this morning for breakfast! LOL!
I know it’ll be worth the work when I am happy with the quilting. I’m already happy with those stitches gone!!
I want to wish my MIL, Geri, a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY today! Happy Birthday Mom! Thanks for all you do!
