Adventures in Pierogi Making


I’m lazy and we dont have a ton of food in the house right now. Lost of dinner and breakfast stuff, but not really any lunch stuff. I like making biscuits and muffins and such. I use Jiffy’s making mix… why? Cause it is cheap and like i said, i’m lazy.

A couple weeks ago i tore apart the jiffy box and cut out all the recipes. I taped them into our build-your-own cook book. It keeps me from having too look up the time/heat for the biscuits – I always forget. They also have dumplings -which is basicly boiled biscuits. Ok… i know pierogi are boiled and their are polish dumplings… So I made pierogi.. Well i’m in the process

I have the dough circles, the stuffing, but i’m still debating how to make them. I will boil them to cook them, then likely put them in the fridge. Do i want to bake them later? Saute them? I can’t decide.

Ok ..boiled dough is gross… these will be baked and crispy when done.

Notes for baby books:


When I have kids… please don’t get me religious baby books. Just donate them to a church, cause thats all i will do with them.

And I love mr men books and magic school bus (cause really until they get a certain age the books will really need to be entertaining to me)

Why is goodnight moon so expensive?

I hate Caillou… stupid french chemo kid with a stupid spelled name…

And if someone can help remember those science books with the little mouse, that would be awesome.
