I wonder what a Polish family eat, when they make Polish food, at home.
various sandwiches, cottage cheese, milk soups (with cornflakes, manna grains, porridge), scrumbled/boiled hard/soft eggs, yogurts. For a drink tea, cofee.
Main meal (obiad, generally eaten between 13-17), contains mostly 3 things:
1.potatoes (mashed or full)/rice/grains/nuddles
2.vegetable salads/saur kraut/boiled vegetables
3.kotlet schabowy (pork cutlet in breadcrumbs) /kotlet mielony (ground meat cutlet)/fish/some nuddles (then no 1 and 2)/ chicken or pork liver with fried onion/ gulash (stew)/ boiled chicken etc.
There used to be a tradition of eating two dishes for obiad: a soup
and then a main course
, however it takes a lot of preparation to make 2 dishes for obiad and it's too much to eat so few people really do it.
sandwiches mostly, soemtimes pancakes but actually it can be everything.
As a snack fruits in my case, during the day.
Between obiad and supper there should be podwieczorek which mostly means some sweet cake etc. with a tea.
Many of my friedns (I mean female) don't eat breakfast at all. It's because of bad habits, wrong idea of the diet, hurry.
Working people eat at canteens or takeaways from butcher's shops.
Does this food change from area to area in Poland?
