      That's great -- I used to "help" my mom make pierogies on Friday afternoons, but I never learned how to do it from her -- it's great that your son decided to take advantage of her knowledge.

      Friends,

      I rarely post, but thought I'd pass along some stuff that's happening in our family. Last week, my son (35) called my wife (his mom) and asked if she'd spend a day with him to teach him how to make pirohy. She's always made her own, which she learned to make from my mom. We're both Slovak, but her mom bought them from the Uki church and my mom made them from scratch.

      The key to good pirohy is good dough, and they spent an entire day rolling dough and, when the day was done...the kid made pirohy worthy of any Slovak table. They did potato/cheese, cabbage and lekvar (which I always disliked). Important to keep the tradition alive. Yes, "Pierogies" are big in the supermarket, but nothing like the "Real Thing".
