mashed strawberries with sour cream and sugar

I prefer my strawberries (Fragaria vesca) with Balsamic vinegar and fine ground black pepper.

I bought a Podwawelka the other day, partly because I thought it might be quite tasty, but mostly so I could brandish it whilst growling the words 'Look at the size of that sausage!'. Anyway, after a bit of waving it around at work, I tucked into it with some bread and a jar of mustard. It was delicious, and memories came flooding back of Poland in the summertime.

I'm still not fat.

That's it - all respond to my weird ways with strawberries and ignore my huge kiełbasa!

Balsmaic vinegar is not like normal white vinegar, malt vinegar or wine or cider vinegar. It's thick and very dark brown, quite sweet and almost indescribable. I use Balsamic vinegar that (they assure me) has aged for 20 years in a succession of casks made of oak (Quercus spp.), Chestnut (Castanea sativa) and various other woods. The strawberries have to come from my garden. They're smaller and less deformed than the supermarket, or even market bought ones.

Why are so many strawberries too big, oddly shaped, like Siamese twins, with odd patches with too many seeds, over-ripe on one side, under-ripe on the other?

see and my bloke refused to even have a bit of that because "desserts made with pasta are wrong". why???? blueberry pierogi is a dessert made out of bluberries wrapped in what basically is pasta dough, and he munched on those in Poland and never complained!

lokshen pudding

what's that if i may ask????

those red once with white dots always tasted the best! ;)

Ill second your statment "polish food is making me fat!"

I moved here 3 weeks ago and my boyfriends parents live in the flat above, they insist we join them for atleast one meal a day, sometimes 2, usualy Kapki (cant spell, sorry) about 10 then Dinner about 4, usualy: meat (in a million forms), potatoes (boiled), salad almost ALWAYS with mayonaise on it?! never could i have fathomed that before i got here, and then (from a long line of bakers) some sort of cake or something sweet followed by strong coffe and shwika w chocolate (dried candied plumbs in chocolate)

ordinarily i have about half the callories of this in england so my body is struggling a little but....ITS SO GOOD! its hard to turn down. Along with 'eat Kasia, eat' from his mum and dad its hard to turn down!

Hmmm. I always end up eating more in PL, but I lose weight while I'm there:) I think it has to do with being active.
