I hope this finds everyone well and happy! It seems like I just do not get the opportunity to post and do the visiting that I want to do! Our kids and their activities really keep us hopping.
I am not sure if I have mentioned to you before that I am Ukrainian. Full-blooded Ukrainian...all four sets of my great grandparents came from Ukraine. My parent's farm is in an area where most of the neighbors are also Ukrainian. People of my parents age (70) all speak Ukrainian. My generation can understand a bit and speak a few words. I LOVE Ukrainian food and have become obsessed with making the dishes to pass down to my children and so forth. My only living grandparent is my Grandma. She is not able to do any cooking so she loves when I make something Ukrainian and take it to her.
Lately I have been making piroshki which is a kind of like a bun with filling. You will see other nationalities with similar foods. My Grandma loves my piroshki with ground beef seasoned with some onions, salt and cracked pepper. My husband loves the ones stuffed with apples, cinnamon and sugar! I must run for now but I will be back soon. THANK you so much for stopping by! See you soon.
