It has always amazed that people come to our shores, can't speak a word of English, study like mad and are able to conquer the language in a short time. My son's FIL comes from Albania. He was in the Russian army before he came here two years ago. Spoke Russian and Albanian. Not one word of English. My son learned Albanian so he could talk to him. FIL has done better learning English than my son has Albanian.

Charlie, you seem to do quite all right with your English. Congratulations on conquering a most difficult language. You have more courage than I do.

I know Haluski as:
fry 1lb. bacon til just crisp, remove from pan,chop into peices- addbutter & large onion sliced and cook then add head of cabbage all sliced up couple cloves of garlic minced up cook till tender then added cooked well buttered egg noodles to it and salt and pepper, mix in cooked bacon and serve.

Just goes to show how one dish can be so different to others.

Some might call that kapusta.

yes very true and like I said different dishes different version
My polish inlaw taught me kapusta this way with the main ingredients of split peas, salt pork, saurkrautno noodles.

I always find it interesting the translation of different but the same dishes cooked by different cultures.
Like ravolis can turn into chinese dumpling or perogies depending on the culture.

Addie, thank you. That is why I am a big proponent of One lenguage. English must be official lenguage, and those who do not want to speak it, are welcome to go back to where they come from.

Your words are those spoken by so many Americans.

But I do understand the difficulty of learning English. Example: (bough, a tree branch) (bow, bend at the waist) (bow, a ribbon for the hair) (buy, to make a purchase) (by, to go past) (bye, to leave a person) are just a couple. It is a wonder that anyone can learn the language. And then the spelling is totally confusing Even for Americans. You can hold your head up high with your conquering the language.

Listen, I make plenty of mistakes, But I try. You understand me. Corrections are always welcome. Tell you the truth, I cannot spell in Russian either. I can cook blindfolded, But spelling is just not my thing.

Charlie, I have a daughter that is an executive secretary for management in the Department of Vehicles. She calls me from work all the time asking, "Mom, how do you spell....?" When she has to write a report, I would have to say that at least 40% of it is my work. And she has spell check on her computer. I can't wait until she retires in 5 years. Then I can stop working. My middle son has asked me to spell the word "a" for him. Nobody can be a worse speller than my two kids. Sometimes I wonder if they are really mine.

And besides, we all know that here in the forum, spelling never counts. We know what you mean. I have always found that I have a special place in my heart for folks who have difficulty with spelling. I always have had trouble with puncuation. English is such a difficult language. We love you just the way you are.

Lazy Pirogy [SIZE=3][FONT=Bookman Old Style]Lazy Pirogy, or as they are called in Russian Lenivie Vareniki. (TNT)[/FONT][/SIZE] [FONT=Bookman Old Style][SIZE=3] [/SIZE][/FONT] [SIZE=3][FONT=Bookman Old Style]Or you can call them Halushki in Ukrainian, or if you want to make them Italian, they would probably be called gnocchi. Not sure though.[/FONT][/SIZE] [FONT=Bookman Old Style][SIZE=3] [/SIZE][/FONT] [SIZE=3][FONT=Bookman Old Style]Anyways:[/FONT][/SIZE] [SIZE=3][FONT=Bookman Old Style]½ lb. farmers’ cheese[/FONT][/SIZE] [SIZE=3][FONT=Bookman Old Style]1 egg[/FONT][/SIZE] [SIZE=3][FONT=Bookman Old Style]1 cup flour[/FONT][/SIZE] [SIZE=3][FONT=Bookman Old Style]Salt to taste [/FONT][/SIZE] [SIZE=3][FONT=Bookman Old Style]½ tea spoon Baking soda [/FONT][/SIZE] [SIZE=3][FONT=Bookman Old Style]and [/FONT][/SIZE] [SIZE=3][FONT=Bookman Old Style]1 table spoon of vinegar mixed together [/FONT][/SIZE] [SIZE=3][FONT=Bookman Old Style](Can be substituted for baking powder) [/FONT][/SIZE] [FONT=Bookman Old Style][SIZE=3] [/SIZE][/FONT] [SIZE=3][FONT=Bookman Old Style]I was really lazy this morning, could not get out of the bed. I overslept my first shift of Morning Prayer, decided to make something different for kids. I did not have Farmers cheese, only Cottage, I do not really like to use it because it has too much liquid for this this dish, but I did it anyway, had to add more flour. Mix/kneed everything together till a ball forms, roll it out into a long round, or not so round, ahh, darn, what is it cold, you know shape like snake, round and long. Anyways you know what I mean. Do you? If you do tell me what it is called, please. Doesn’t have to be perfect by any means. In the meantime boil some water in a pot, it is better to have pot big enough so you pasta, let’s call it that, will have enough room to cook and grow, because if you did it right it will grow. Add a little bit of sat to the water. Slice the pasta into about half an inch to ¾ of an inch pieces and put into boiling water. In the beginning when I first started making this I would cook only one to see if it falls apart, if it did I would add more flour and kneed it some more. When they swim to the top, give them couple more minutes and they are done. Take it out with slotted spoon; serve with butter and sour cream. [/FONT][/SIZE] 3 stars 1 reviews
