We might actually have a Minnesota food this weekend. I saw that the Juicy Lucy is purported to have been created there. Then again, I was putting cheese in the middle of burger patties 30+ years ago. Hmm, perhaps a trip to the local beer emporium might result in a made-in-MN beer...

Have you not conquered that problem yet? Just lay them out on a cookie sheet and freeze them separately. Then pop them into boiling water individually. Same with the pirogies. I say go for the Pirogies!

I never made them before either. And am "dough challenged" , but they were really pretty easy. Half the trick of doing this is finding just the right recipe (read easy ). In my case I have to pretty much halve everything I find.

As many times as I've been to Detroit I never considered them a fish fry and pierogie community. I do believe they are on my team's schedule this year, so better see what looks good.

I grew up just south of Detroit and a spring smelt fry was a tradition, as well as perch during the summer. And as I mentioned before, DH is Polish-American and grew up with pierogies - Google "food in Hamtramck" There are large communities of Poles and Germans in southeastern Michigan.

There's also a large Middle-Eastern community in Dearborn, a Detroit suburb, if you want to go in that direction.

Freezing pierogies before cooking, that might give them a fighting chance and properly seal. The first recipe I went and looked at as a preview just now said to do this.


It's funny, I can make sure Jucy Lucy's are well sealed. No cheese escaping into the fire. If they are pan fried, I don't mind a little fried cheese.

Y'know....after further reflection, and considering the 50 state sandwich thread, if my 'Skins don't perform any better than they have so far....My next entry in the Pigskin Challenge is gonna be Wish Sandwiches all around!

Itís Vikings vs Browns today.

I was looking at foods Cleveland is famous for. Lot of Polish heritage and foods. Then I discovered thisó never heard of these before and they are a perfect tail gate munchables. Hanky Pankyís.

What is more fun than a little hanky panky on a Sunday afternoon.

Hanky pankyís remind me of mini Rueben sandwiches, mix some chopped corn beef, kraut and sauce. Top with cheese. . Party food. Hanky pankyís are a combo of sausage, burger, cheese, top with more cheese on little cocktail rye breads. Broil. Iím making a half recipe with Jimmy Deanís hot sausage, burger,, onion, garlic powder, oregano, Worcester and 4 cheese Italian blend. Most recipes I looked at call for velveeta, but I decided to skip that part. Probably sprinkle with parmesan before baking.

And, just because, Iím grilling chix wings. Although , I might bake them til crispy and either way, paint with Famous Daveís BBQ sauce that I kick up a notch.

I bought a basket cherry tomatoes, can either slice on the hanky panks or just eat. I made a pan of Brownies yesterday. Already test drived them last night and again for breakfast. DxW is bringing a jar of her beet pickles. ( Does that count as a Polish food?) and probably something else to munch. I guess thatís enough food for the whole day and then some.
