Guess what my mom made rosól!!

Lol. It must be Sunday then. It is such a traditional sunday dinner!
I love rosół too and always loved to vsit my aunt on weekends (when I still lived in Poland). She lived in a village and the rosól was mad from a chicken who lost her life that day. Sometimes, it had to boil for hours! But, boy - what a rosół it was!

Home made kluski as well.

Wow i wouldnt be able to stand that!
I remember my grandma in Poland last year when i visited my uncle gave her a chicken and she killed it to!The axe had blood on it!But luckly it didnt take hours to make the rosól but it felt a little weird eating it knowing my grandma killed it!

Yeah, it would appear so but I am conditioned by having eaten this type of food for quite some time.

Chasing the meal with hot cinnamon rice milk is comforting too.

Kotlet z ziemniaczkami i kluskami z sosem grzybowym.

I second this one. Toss in some kopytki with mizeria on the side, as well as a zywiec, and I am good to go.

Hell yeah, mizeria is very nice. Have you tried the Żywiec in Żywiec?

Have you tried the Żywiec in Żywiec?

No, never had. I made it to the Okocim brewery when I visited family for Boze Narodzenie a couple years back, but I prefer Zywiec.

It washes down any Polish meal nicely. Another brewery near here is in Tychy, the Tyskie brewery. Do you like Tyskie?

Sorry, missed your question.

I'm not as big of a fan of Tyskie. Tato always has some litry in the garage, but in terms of preference:

Zywiec > Okocim > Tyskie

Now, Tyskie or some bimber? Wujek w polsce wlal mi szklanke tego i, o, moja glowa...

Z szerem? Is this Sean Connery day? Didn't you mean z serem (with cheese)? ;) ;) ;)

Isn't the Eagle supposed to be the symbol of Poland? Dumplings with cheese :) :)

Strangely enough we eat our pierogi with cheddar cheese.

When my mum came to the UK in the late 40s she could not get traditional cheese used in pierogi.

Now I prefer it with cheddar cheese.

traditional cheese

My Mom used to make her own cheese < her Mom showed her how to do it> I think I would be able to make some from memory but I haven't ever tried it.

Don't think it matters what cheese you use so long as you enjoy them :)

Yeah, cheese is legendary. Calorific to the max but a welcome addition to almost any meal.
24 Feb 2009 /  #55
Calorific to the max

Not if you use Polish cheese made the traditional way :) It's the melted butter on the pierogi that's the villain lol.........I don't eat any butter or margarine......I just got out of the habit of using hard fats.

I would have to drizzle a little olive oil on the pierogi but I am sure that I will just revert back to having melted butter on them when I go to Poland this year :)

I'm using a new rice flour to make some pierogi next week, hope it works out...< I think it will cos it makes good pasta ? >

Mine has to be fried Oscypek with the jam on top. Whenever I'm in a Polskie or Chlopskie Jadlo restaurant I always have it. It is superb!
Seanus 15 | 19,706

Good idea, Lir. Cut back on the low density lipoproteins.

Oscypek is a bit salty and rubbery for my liking. Quite edible tho.

Cut back on the low density lipoproteins.

I expect that's a good idea if you have high cholesterol in the case of some hard fats. But did you know that in moderation Butter is a good fat. It's because it is not highly processed and has nothing added to it at all , so therefore it is pure.

I just got out of the habit of using butter, probably due to the fact that I no longer eat bread.

Real Polish bread demands Lurpak Butter <or something very similar >

Polish butter is pretty good. Oselka is tasty, not quite as good as Lurpak but quite ok. Kerrygold is nice, Irish butter.

Chicken curry and rice as cooked by my favourite erasmus student failing that anything i can get which has flavour and doesn't contain cabbage, mayonnaise, sausage or gherkins. Actually that narrows it down to rice or bread and the bread is vile
