In addition

In fact, you can give anything that can be sprinkled with holy water.

Instead of making poppy seed cake (I am still sort of reluctant) I made another dish. For myself, mostly.
What exactly? Here it is in the initial state, right after adding and mixing everything but before putting on the cooker.

Hint: it isn`t tatar raw steak!

Hint: it isn`t tatar raw steak!

Another hint. it is one of the main dishes of traditional Great Polish Cuisine. But foreigners are not so enthusiastic.
Hint 3: It can be kept long and eaten day by day without the loss of taste, quite the contrary.

I want to say bigos but 'instead of makowiec' makes it sound like it's a dessert....

Yes, bigos!

but 'instead of makowiec'

Bigos, just like poppy seed cake, takes some time to prepare. I refuse to make both at a time and I chose bigos.

In my experience non-Polish people might be put off by the look (it can be quite ugly) but if they taste it they usually like it. I've liked most of the bigos I've had but one time I couldn't finish it... it was at a club meeting and it tasted.... not off, I think it was supposed to be that way but I just really didn't like it. I'm too lazy to mix sauerkraut and fresh cabbage equally so I usually just stew sauerkraut with meat and spices (and dried mushrooms and dried plums).

I spilled some Parmesan on my computer and now I have Mac & Cheese.

I've always liked bigos, really tasty dish. I wouldn't have got that from Pawian's pic though. It looked to me like he was making coleslaw from scratch!

Exactly!! That`s the initial stage before cooking. The final result is in Bigos Recipe thread. :):):)

he was making coleslaw from scratch!

Exactly!!! An old Polish proverb says : every bigos has to be made from scratch!!!

every bigos

There is also a saying - you have made bigos! ( aleś narobił bigosu! ).

you have made bigos!

Exactly!!! That is the old proverb of Polish bees! When a bee makes a mess instead of honey in the production halls of the hive, her critical mates mention bigos! :):):)

You can also - naważyć piwa, or - nabrać wody w usta.😀
