I guess most Poles I've met love sausages. Other than that there was one obsessed with pickled things (egg, ghurkins, red cabbage, you name it).
Heh I can never tire of saying how much I like to eat picked items, sausages and heavy breads. All posts about food sound heavenly. I think if i was assimilated, you would be able to tell me as non-Polish by the portions and amount of fish I eat as well. Seems not as big an item with general Polish as far as I can tell here.
Searched for a thread to Necro as preferred; rather than start anew:Do other Americans (and our english speaking counterparts in UK & Oz) Feel like a Hun eating next to your EU friend/mate even if you are not overweight?
I wonder how much more budget I'd need to eat the way I do? <_<
I will actually faint in the midday if my portions fall below 1800 ca for the day ( I tried to be on that atkins diet to help my BF at the time stick to his diet. OMG! Mis-stake!)
Still.....when my fiance' and I eat meals together via video.. He brings a plate that barely has enough food to keep my 7 yr old alive. With exception of Pizza or Potato chips(crisps). But though the slice is large, he eats only one. I also notice whatever chicken their KFC uses looks like game hens compared to what I bring home from KFC.
I will admit that most his diet choices are atypical because of serious allergies, he doenst eat the full meal with family most days. At first, when we were still only good buds; I was embarrassed and would consume a good half my meal as I walked the hallway to return to call. I eat like a winter wolf if I don't force myself to relax.
I notice he eats 2 more times in the day and they break up their meals into something like courses. Eating each item as ready rather than awiting for all to be put on plate at once. One would say he 'eats like a bird'
In reality it is I, who eats like a bird.. a REAL bird, and a good thing I have metabolism like a bird or i'd weigh more than my car! German food is like mana to me and from what I can see so shall Polish food be. I don't diet though I cut soda pop out and beer (I miss my good heavy ales) for all but special occasions since those are the only things that seem to affect my size in all but tiny amounts.
But he is boggled the first time he saw me bring a large (not supersize) drink home. And how large I say restaurant meat portions are or sandwiches.
NEVER heard of it. Potatoes and bread? How do you mean ? Actually putting the potatoes onto the bread? If so, I have never heard of it ANYWHERE in the USA.
LAWLZ..many meals incl in restaurants serve both potatoes and bread at same meal..
there is even dish that ladles chipped beef (also called affectionately **** On a Shingle. SOS) cooked in gravy over mashed potatoes and/or bread . Southerners especially will swab their rolls or cornbread in their gravy and mashed potatoes. ^_^ AS they enjoy their battered fried fish/meat, and battered fried bread (hushpuppies), okra, zuchinni and creamed green/corn/string beans. You will find SOS even in California in older established Diners. All across SW, South and as far up as West Virginny. It also was an Army favorite at chow.
