I make homemade pierogies. Yum!! And green beans, of course, and rolls, and some sort of pie. Cakes are for birthdays, pies are for holidays!
But I don't eat any red meat/pork- only turkey and very rarely turkey, so not sure what I will be making meat-wise, if I make anything. Usually, we got to my sister's house, but plans with her in-laws interfere this year.
Ummm....I'd love to, but I don't use a recipe. :uhh: After I posted this, I though, "oh, i hope no one asks for the recipe!" LOL and sorry!
I always make way too much, too. I am mostly english and irish, but my grandfather was polish/lithuanian, and pierogies are just in my veins. I just mix this and that until I get what I want. But I'm sure allrecipes or recipezaar must have a good recipe. Let me look. around.
And here is a "mock" pierogie dish. It is a casserole made with lasagna noodles. I think I might just make this for dinner tonight (minus the Velveeta), as DD could eat pierogies at every meal if we let her. (My great gradmother would be appalled, but since I don't have time to make hommade ones frequently, I buy Mrs. T's for her....) :uhh: http://www.recipezaar.com/22444 This got 5 stars from the people who reviewed it.
You mean you can have something for Easter with ham besides mashed potatoes and rolls? Hmmmm.... nearly every Easter dinner I can remember has been ham, mashed potatoes, and rolls. I know there were other sides-- jello salad, cake, etc-- but the main dishes were always the same.
On the other side of my family, though, that grandma (the one who passed away last year) would occasionally rebel-- one year she made lasagna for Easter just because she was in the mood for it. The family was all in shock-- it still makes me laugh to think about it now. :laugh:
As for an easy scalloped potato recipe, I make mine from scratch in the microwave. Here's the recipe: http://www.recipezaar.com/47376 . Another reviewer on that site converted it to an oven recipe if you'd rather do them that way-- see the review by "melsmom" just below the recipe.
