Chicken soup, followed by Lazanki. :drool:  Look up that dish. It's not known in North America, but if you put all the ingredients in, you won't be disappointed.
laznaki and kapusta! Some pierogis and kruschiki too.  You must have some Polish or Slavic in you.
You know it, my friend. :ebert:  By kruschiki, do you mean those sugary cakes made with bread?
Also known as angel wings.  They're a light dough, little or no sugar in it, fried crisp like a pie crust, and covered with powdered sugar.  As a kid I used to buy them still warm  from the Palmer Bakery in Detroit, less than 100 yards from Grandma's and Mom's house. Sooooo good!
Those are the ones, baby! :drool: After your post, my wife guessed the name, when I asked her about kruschiki. We call them chrust.

That's the biggest thing I miss from living up North bitd, the ethnic diversity and neighborhoods.  German, Polish, Italian, Jewish, Arabic, etc.  Detroit still has the Greektown area just north of downtown, but I understand it's dicey because of hit and run crime.  Not as bad is Mexicantown southwest of downtown with restaurants, bodegas, tacquerias, bars, etc.   That, and freshwater fish.  Love my grouper, snapper, yellowtail, and stone crab, but God I miss perch, pickerel, whitefish, and fresh caught coho.

Yeah, homemade pierogis are always superior to what you can find in a supermarket. Unless you're in Eastern Europe, that is. ;)
