Are you telling me that you don't have a cooler or access to one and no microwave in the dorm.My 2 daughters went to university and that's all they used to heat up their meals. They also had a small fridge which held barely anything.

Food / Blueberry Pierogi's [30]

Here is a suggestion on keeping the berries from running :

Wash, drain, and drip dry 1 pt. blueberries. Some cooks sprinkle the
blueberries with sugar before filling pierogi, but that makes the filling quite runny. We feel it is better to fill them with just the blueberries and then sprinkle the cooked pierogi with powered or granulated sugar on serving platter. This is a great summertime favorite, the more so that the small wild blueberries found in Poland's forests are far tastier than the commercially grown variety available in America. Note: Your blueberry pierogi will be less runny if you sprinkle the berries with 1-2 T. flour or potato starch.

Also for thanksgiving we shot a couple of wild turkeys..First time I tried it.Not bad.In the spring we shot 6 rabbits.good tasting.The only problem with shooting your own venison----Buckshot-when eating watch out for it.!!!!!!!

Food / Is there any other Polish seafood exept herring and carp? [30]

The carp that are supplied to stores in Poland are bred in captivity.These are clean fish fed pellets and not mud feeders.When I was there I was able to go to one of the "wstawy" which looked like a humongous pool.What they do is drain this pool when the fish are the right size and collect them.Here in Canada we have the same thing in stocked trout and salmon. Ta ryba jest dobra i smaczna.Daj Boze !!!!
