David, hi, you never stop surprising me. As a matter of fact I am almost done cooking for Purim, small getharing of about 200. 2 24 quarts pots of borscht, about a 1200-1300 varenikies/pirogie. About 600 pirpzhkies. If I'm not going to drop dead by Friday I'll sleep all day Sunday. I can't even begin to tell you how tired I am. Tomorow is fun part begins boiling the varenikies.

I can not imagine making 1300 pirogies - about 60 I did for an Orthodox Siveta Vechera at Christmas but 1300?? How? And that much borsch one could swim in. Six hundred pirpzhkies???

Folks, you have little idea what Charlie has done. Thanks for sharing Charlie!
The Chef's hat is for you.

P.S. - Charlie, I spend too much time on line looking for things for Books by Volunteers who serve Ukraine Orphans. Go there are you will find that your affiliation is well represented. That's what it's all about - everyone included.

Oh - Goodweed, thanks for the link. I took a quick look and will go back as soon as I hit the submit button right now.............

Exclamation Perogies, perohie, prohie

Here is a link to vareneky, with accent on the second syllable, (or perogies, pirogies, progies, etc. as we generally call them). It has how to photos and recipes.
http://www.allthingsukrainian.com/Recipe/Varenyky/index.html


Peroshies (accent on the o) is the probably incorrect transliteration but I don't know any other. I'm not sure of CharlieD's transliteration . Anyway, they are similar to vareneky but most often I think with yeast dough and either fried or baked.

But what do I know? I'm just a poboy once upon a time from the hills of North Carolina and can't spell in English much less Ukrainian.

By the way Goodweed - fascinating link you provided. It links us as people in a strange way - our Christian members and readers will recall the story of the three wise men from the East bringing gifts. Well, they were most likely priests from these people when they lived in Persia, not Iran, before being forced out to India when Arabs conquered Persia and changed the religion. Worth opening and reading for sure. Thanks , kudos!!

GotGarlic is a good guy so I don't mind at all. I hope he doesn't mind either. But I was confused. I'm not sure that that can ever be helped though.

No, *she* doesn't mind one bit. Thanks for the links I should try making pierogies sometime. DH's father is Polish and his mother is German, so he grew up with them.
