I also think you do not have to serve anything special, make what you would normaly make for diner, unless there are religious restrictions. Of course you can go and ask the Polish member here Kasia for somethiong super authentic, like here Bigos - old Polish meal
But bet it is not neccessary.

I'd make something NOT Polish. He must be sick of it by now.

Zhiara, that would be my normal thing. Over the years, I've concluded that it is best to not try to match some one's native cuisine. One reason I'm thinking of hanging my husband is that he promised a real Polish dinner. Huh? Given a choice I'd make some tourtiere, lasagna, or fancy stew (boeuf bourginion or coq au vin) and salads and a desert, and call it good. No way am I going to be able to match an old priest's mother's cooking. It may never happen. I can only wish, but I rather suspect this is going to happen. I think I'll find a way to change the dinner to the beef or chicken dishes mentioned above. Roll of eyes. Like I said, may never happen, but knowing the folk involved it might very well.

Oh, dearie me (what I write when my brain is swearing). It just occurred to me that I've been thinking of a cabbage roll dinner! Perfect answer! I can invite the priest along with my regular friends!

I'm so happy. Sometimes you need to just think aloud (or on computer)! Happy, happy girl. Husband will live for another day!

i think you may end up being surprised, claire. hard-patootied priests are often the exact opposite when not on the altar or teaching school. at least they're supposed to be.


i would go with a baked ham, if you want to go polish. and see if you can get/make cruschiki or a babka.

I really don't have anything new to add, other than to say this thread is exactly why I love this place.

Claire, you might want to check out the Bigos thread and I think maybe there is another where you don't wrap the little guamkis up, but put the stuffing into a pot with shredded cabbage. Lots less work, same flavor.

You never know. You'll be way better. Maybe she was a crappy cook.

I wouldn't make anything Polish as he probably gets alot of polish food, I would make a nice roasted chicken andpotatoes, veggies a couple different ones just in case he didn't like one . Or even stuffeed boneless chicken breast. or Pot roast, I feel it like the movie that tom hanks did - stuck on the island and living on seafood then when he gets rescued he given more seafood where maybe a hamburger he really wanted.
I wouldn't give him frozen peoriges as he would be used to the homemade one and they would be rubber to him. I had that experience.
