It's another day for some happiness--and this day is related to food, so that makes me pretty darn happy!
What's the topic you ask?
My comfort food has gotta be perogies. I am half Ukrainian and my paternal Ukrainian Grandmother actually taught my maternal Non-Ukrainian Grandmother how to make them (at least I am pretty sure that is who taught my maternal Grandma how to make them!). My paternal Grandma's perogies were quite small--or maybe they're just small in comparison with the HUGE perogies that my maternal Grandmother makes! Most of my perogi memories revolve around my maternal Grandmother. She makes really big batches of them for our family dinners and I grew up helping her make them. The ones I grew up with were RICH RICH things--made with Velveeta cheese (no less!) and then we'd always top them with a cream and onion sauce. Mmmmm. When Christmas or Thanksgiving or Easter (or any other good excuse for a huge batch of perogies existed) rolled around--we'd always keep track of how many we ate just to see who could eat the most!
Of course, now that I'm vegan, things are a bit different! I can still make some pretty badass (vegan) perogies though!
(I actually haven't made a batch of these bad-boys in a couple of years--I have to rectify that soon!)
Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to go check out what Lizzy and Courtney said were their comfort foods!
