Rysavy,do you know how to prepare most Polish dishes and if so what do you like making the best?
Actually I prepare German and Boheme most ,which share a lot with Polish ones-same food different names with very slight variation of a single ingredient or spice set. A lot of Portuguese Basque and some Russian (and of course a lot of US Southern Fried & TexMex and what few unique cherokee dishes there are) Polish and German foods in Int'l delis are as close as I can find to my childhood comfort foods.I do prefer Polish prepared pork to German.Am a foodie so I like everything and cook what I like; even what I don't like to accomodate a guest;
I am very fond of pickled items, sausages, farm cheeses and hearty combinations. I make a lot of casseroles, pastry based dishes, goulashes and meat /pies, as well as desserts. I like best one-two skillet dishes that take less than an hour, because I'm lazy as far as cleaning the aftermath and have cramped kitchen lately. So I make breads and pie crusts from scratch less often.
You need to come on the thread about what polish dishes would you eat.
Pawain is throwing mouth watering distinctly Polish dishes in there often! ^_^
Miles and miles of frozen food freezers:
Miles is right!
Fish sticks, french fires, fruit, ice cream and chicken fingers are all I acquire from frozen.
I try to stay out of markets like that.
Last time I was in a Super WalMart , I was sick, they had just finished another reset of the displays.
I couldnt find anything. I hadn't eaten and my meds were wearing off so symptoms up inluding asthma.
I realized that my list had things I missed on other side of store and I'd have to trek yet again all the way.
I started crying like a big goon in the middle of the canned goods.. I had already been wandering 3 hours.
One of teh few things I miss of WA state is the farmers market and small farms to buy produce at.
I walk to a market that is double+ Walmart price but I can't being my self to return!
