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.

My mother made both from scratch.  Never bought anything from the store that came close.  :sigh: :sigh: :sigh:

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

The other night I seared some shrimp that had marinated in lemon, chili powder, garlic/onion salt.  I served it on a bed of spaghetti with a little pesto and it was great.  The Lad enjoyed it.

How long did you marinate it?  I didn't know you could marinate anything without liquid unless you used a lot of lemon.  How much lemon did you use, and did you use a real lemon or that phony RealLemon?

I used the phony stuff, which was all I had.  It didn't sit long...maybe an hour.  Shrimp doesn't need much.  The shrimp created plenty of it's own liquid as it sat.  I just stirred it every ten minutes or so.

My mother used to make golabki a lot.  I've made it a few times myself.  It's delicious.

Sounds like a lazy man's cabbage rolls, which I love. :)


I'm having some leftover jambalaya.  Spicy!  :dweez:
