~:: Mom Photographer ::~
I grew up spending hours and hours helping my mother to make pierogi. Each week on Friday our family was put to work in the kitchen. Filling and folding, folding and filling, boiling and frying, and then eating – the most deserved part!!!
Pierogi, a dish I thought I’ll be missing a lot when I moved to U.S. How surprised I was when I saw them in a local grocery shop. I was not surprise, though, that they didn’t taste like the real deal from my mother’s kitchen.
And I was not surprise that people call them “pierogies”, it just made me smile (it still does), because the truth is that “pierogi” is already a plural name for this dish.
So, pierogi or pierogies, they are delicious no matter how you call them, worth every single hour you spend making them
