Fat Sunday goes Polish!
It is a cold November day in Mid Michigan and what better way to take the edge off the cold and froggy day! Oh yeah, food and Fat Sunday food. Today, and thanks to the neighbor giving me her last head of cabbage from the garden, I pulled out the old Polish recipes. I'm sure the Golumpki Soup recipe is probably published somewhere but this one I got from a friends Babcia (Polish Grandmother - pronounced like Boo Sha) when I was just a kid. We loved eating at her house as we ate and ate and ate and she never stopped cooking; Babcia was always cooking and we were always eating! So, on the menu today: Golumpki Soup, Mashed Potato and Cheese Pierogies, and jumbo buttermilk biscuits. I'm thinking Krissy will be waking early with the smell of all this business going on! I no longer make my own Pierogies,,,,not when I can get them in a bag! LOL
