Okay fine! I give up!

I love weather like that! (Don't really get a lot of it here though).

Anyway, back to pierogies.... at least they have something other than the dumpling and the potatoes... there is, (according to Wiki), meat or cheese or fruit in there too...

Now, I am going to look up Kluski noodles.... *trudges back to Google*

Update: Kluski "noodles" aren't "noodles" at all! They are made out of potato! (Sound nice though). :-)
I don't know if this works with other browser, but it works with FireFox and I think it works with Chrome. Just highlight the term and right click. A menu pops up that includes "Search Google for _______". It pops the search into a new tab.

I have that in my Google toolbar (which Firefox doesn't allow, but IE does). I'm just not sure if the same answers pop up if you are in a different Internet zone (UK, AU...).
From what I read Eastern European kluski noodles are potato based, whereas the ones I mentioned are not.
Pasta can be tricky for sure, which some of us are learning.

Hm, I won't lie, I was a tad sceptical there TL! But I just tried it and when I highlighted and right-clicked, I got an option to "search Bing". Clicking on that brought up the details! Very cool!

Now, all I have to do is remember to do that!

I think it is fair to say that as a UK user, my search results are not the same as yours Pac. Google skews results depending on where you are I think?

Oh, most definitely.
That's why it was a bit off/odd a while back to hear some members saying this was an international forum. You might be able to find it internationally, but it is based here in the USA. And the things we talk about, including foods, dates and time, reflect so. As they say, When in Rome...
I've hung out at other forums where I had to do the same, search Google because I didn't understand something yet everyone else was on the same page.
It's good to learn IMO.

I have a search window near the top of my browser. I can choose among many search engines. It searches whichever one I have selected at the moment. I often use it to search Wikipedia. If you are using FF, you can customize which search engines it shows.

I always accept that when a forum is from a specific place, you are an "outsider". I have been on American forums for a good few years now (they tend to be more "active" I find.)

Personally, I love finding out about cultural differences and food seems to be a truly excellent way of doing that!

It certainly does, Katy.
I still remember my receiving Tim Tams in place of Heinz Ketchup. Worked for me. I was growing tired of hearing how good Tim Tams were, but not being able to get any. I never did get the hang of using them as a straw though.
