OK, I think I'll kill my husband ...

Or at least slap him silly. In our town we have a very old-school, Polish Catholic priest. He has a reputation for being very, very, very strict. Well, we don't know him, we're fallen-away Catholics, but we do live in back of the church, and know when he's the priest holding mass because it is something like 90 minutes long. Well, a friend of ours who is devout said she'd offered to make him dinner. Hubby said he'd met the man, and greeted him in Polish (probably the only words he knows in the language). She asked what she could make. By the end of the conversation my husband had volunteered us to go to the dinner, then asked her to invite him here for dinner!. Aitch ee double hockey sticks. I'd already recommended frozen pierogies from a local store, and a cucumber salad. If this comes to pass, any easy-peasy suggestions?

Make something special that relates to your background or your hubby's. The priest has eaten lots of Polish food.

A hearty bowl of soup and some nice crusty rolls translates to any language.

My MIL had the priest over for dinner on lots of occasions.She served peas and when he asked for them I handed them saying..................Peas be with you!


You just can't pass up a opportunity like that!


He may just appreciate the wine as much as the meal IMHO.

Oh, I just noticed that someone from Poland submitted a recipe for Dumplings with cabbage and mushrooms. Maybe that is your menu!

Actually, I had some ingredients on hand for a big bowl of cabbage type soup (actually, my take on what in Hawaii was called Portuguese bean soup) that is really very eastern European. I guess I got a little freaked because if this actually happens it is an old-worldy, strict, priest. I was giving this friend hints on what to buy and prepare for him, then hubby offered to have them over. It may never happen (hope!). I certainly don't want to spend hours listening to what a sinner I am. I'v met and hosted a number of Catholic priests in my life, but this guy really has a reputation for being, well, a hard patootie.

My inlaws are Polish. My mother in law makes a cabbage roll casserole. It is basically alll the ingredients of cabbage rolls, but the cabbabge is shredded and mixed in with the rice and beef. Then the whole thing is baked. She serves a bit of tomato sauce on the side if people want to put some on. It is pretty good.
