Aren’t they pretty? This is my potato batch, and they’re not cooked, yet. I made about four dozen of these and about four dozen sauerkraut. It was a two-day event, because I am slow at pierogi-making. Anyway, they went over rather well at the end-of-semester, ostensibly-holiday-but-actually-just-food party I made them for. There were even leftovers, which was good, because that was an awful lot of work for one evening of snacking! Fortunately, I had some loving-family help for the potato batch, which is as it should be. Pierogi and tamales are family affairs. We have yet to make this year’s batch of Christmas Tamales, but it’s bound to be soon. It’s the holidays, after all, and the best expressions of human goodwill are Family and Food.
