For the past few years, around Easter, we go over to Mark's mom and dad's house and make homemade pierogis.  I don't like them so I don't know what the big fuss is all about but Mark absolutely loves them.  It was a family affair and we all pitched in.  It took very little time to get the double batch made and Mark was trying to convince everyone that we should make more but I think we're good for now.

Measuring ingredients with Grandma.

Mark's making the cheese mixture.

Our first batch of dough.

Rolling the dough.

Cutting the dough.

Cheese time!

Here's 1/2 of a batch.

There was just enough dough and cheese left to make a mini pierogi.

While we were cleaning up, Annabelle decided to play dress up in Grandma's closet.  Here's her first outfit. (Love the toe point)

Then she put on Grandpa's Sabres jersey like a cape.  It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Super Sabre!
Even though our weekend ended up being pretty full once again, it felt calm and peaceful.  No rushing around and getting ourselves crazy trying to get everything done.  It was just about perfect.


  1. making memories....it's the best.

  2. What a cool tradition you have started with your adorable daughter. Such precious family memories!

  3. Ok so I've never heard of these--are they like empanadas?

    1. Yes, a polish version. These are filled with farmer's cheese. I've seen people make them with potato or any sort of savory mushy stuff inside. After you cook them you have to fry them and then eat them with either ketchup or maple syrup.
