Chemikiem, do you remember another thread and a photo in it? I said luncheon meat and you replied:

Awful stuff :(

hahaha

I also said I like it. Probably I used the wrong name because luncheon meat looks awful, like some disgusting substance, meat wholly ground with fat and sth else. (like sb says in a Polish film - dog meat ground with the kennel). The one in the photos is more like canned pork, it is not ground to the end, you can see nice chunks in it.

That was the end of vacation and I decided to regain some weight which I had lost due to intensive swimming practice in the sea, lakes and pools.

Yes, I am not a fan of luncheon meat regardless of country of origin. Most of it is ground crap and I don't want to know which bits of pork it came from! I remember Spam from my childhood, which came from America originally. I just remember it being unnaturally pink with a horrid aftertaste.......and some people actually fried the stuff! The stuff in that Krakus tin doesn't look very appetising either!

hahaha yes, but the first impression can be misleading. :)

I like this tinned chopped pork (thye make various kinds) cause it is fatty and salty - good after a strenuos effort like climbing or gardening.

When I as 300% Polish eat that Polish food I always contemplate on those Poles who are only 100% Polish or who are, God forbid, known as plastic Poles. And I can tell you, I feel fine when contemplate on them and eat. I enjoy at least 300% more then them.

And not very good for you either, bet there are loads of preservatives in it. Not to mention which bit of the pig it actually came from.......

Yes, it is wholly unhealthy. But gives a lot of energy and that`s what I need sometimes. :)

Fried bacon in bread crumbs

In another thread we mentioned strong cheeses, e..g, Stilton.

How about fried old blue cheese? I never throw out forgotten cheese - I hate wasting food.

It's nice fried; you can also make French-style potted cheese.

Preparation of smoked sausage. I made 5 kilos last year and it was a failure coz I gave too many spices and the sausages had unusual taste disliked by my family. So, I had to eat all of them, the last piece before this summer.

Before Easter cake supply goes meat supply. If Poles had to drop either of them, they would stick to meat, of course.

Silesian dumplings - I have eaten them several times when visiting friends/family in Silesia but never been their fan. Too rubbery. Yes, I like rubbery stuff like octopus but only when it is fried and crispy on the surface. Dumplings are only chewy. Even that tasty gravy doesn`t save their lousy reputation.

@Chemikiem
I was raised with them so I may not be objective but I like them. I must say though that here they were presented in very unappealing way. Usually they are not turned into a soup ;)

They look a bit like pyzy which are tasty though a bit heavy. They're probably quite nice served with fried onion and a couple of fried eggs and maybe a bit of fried boczek but one would probably be enough!

Kluski śląskie shouldn't be too rubbery. Someone might have added too much starch. Traditionally served with rolada and red cabbage.
But I'm not a fan either.

Have you ever checked out the Cholesterol content in Kluski śląskie ?
Definitely not an older persons food.

The way it was explained to me was that the dip in the top was for sauce (rather than have them swimming in sauce as in the pics). I don't remember them being rubbery, much less so than pyzy ziemniaczane though they should be a little elastic.

Good. It means I still manage to stick to the thread`s original idea. :):)

to fill you up..

Exactly, very filling.

Usually they are not turned into a soup ;)

it is not soup but gravy. My Silesian family likes it this way and they are right coz on second thoughts, gravy enables you to chew these dumplings sooner.

They look a bit like pyzy which are tasty though a bit heavy.

Not quite. Pyzy are made of different dough.

Kluski śląskie shouldn't be too rubbery.

I am afraid it is unavoidable.

Have you ever checked out the Cholesterol content in Kluski śląskie ?

There must be some but no more than in other traditional Polish dishes.

@johnny reb
Just as much cholesterol as in an egg added to make them. Do flour, starch or potatoes have so much cholesterol?

@pawian
Believe me, they don't need to be rubbery. It's the way you make them.

BTW, I prefer when they're smaller. I actually prefer pyzy.
As for the difference between them and pyzy, roughly speaking, they're made with cooked potatoes while pyzy are mostly made with raw potatoes -I'm not sure as I have never made the latter but I think I remember grandma and mum add some cooked potatoes to pyzy as well.

Yeah, doesn't look like much thought was put into the presentation I must admit! To be honest I've tried a lot of Polish food and haven't come across them before. Hopefully I will be in Silesia next year, so if I see them on a menu I'll try them out of curiousity.

That`s funny you and Lenka think so, coz that was a special Silesian dish to make family guests from Lesser Poland feel at home. They intended to honour us with it. :):)

How about this one? Silesia, too, one day before dumplings:

Oops sorry! Put my foot in that one!

The other dish looks like kotlet schabowy to me, with salad, surówka?

Yes, exactly. BTW, what kind of salad/veg?

See their cold cuts supper. What is in the glass? Do you recognise the mushrooms which you guessed in the Riddle thread?

In post 718?

Do you recognise the mushrooms

Those are the ones that had the yellow colour gills I think, Mleczaj Rydz.
I'm inclined to say whisky in the glass but that's too obvious with a bottle next to it, so I'm going for piwo?
