Introducing... me! And some bugsy pierogi
Hello! This is my first post, sorry about all the pictures... but I had a lot of fun! (oh and all my pictures are blurry, I'll get better at that. :))
I made my pierogi a little bugsy by using half carrots. I made a triple recipe (I think, I don't usually measure things... I also don't usually read recipes the whole way through.) I also wanted to use some carrots because I currently have more carrots in my fridge than probably anyone without a juicer. (I wasn't finished putting up my groceries when I started cooking... I didn't use nutritional yeast or sesame oil in the recipe though.
Husband clicked me chopping onions. This is post near dismemberment of my left middle fingertip and pre tearing up and having to take a five minute break from the onions.
Onions sauteing (in olive oil) and homemade baked beans cooking. Yumm dinner smells delicious!
Kitchen Aid Armed and Ready to make a mean pierogi filling.
Yummm. I made the dough with 1/2 whole wheat flour. It was dense and I needed mas agua than the recipe suggested.
All my pierogi were twice as big as the recipe suggests. I made one recipe worth tonight and it made about 12 big-ish pierogi. Little ball of filling on "circle" of dough (I am circle impaired).
Mutant-shaped (due to circle impairment) pierogi awaiting sudden boiling water sauna. (The boiling pierogi were not much to look at, no picture)
Pierogi after sauteing. I kinda burnt some of them. Oh well, still yummy!
Le Dinner Perfecte. Two big bugsy pirogies, homemade baked beans, and broccoli. I loved it. Husband gave it an 80%. He said it was bland and he hates carrots (duh). I told him that there are two versions in the fridge... one with chipotle and black beans and one with peas and curry powder. He said "Those may get a 90%" He then proceeded to eat TEN of the "bland" ones. Ha!
"Indian" and "Mexican" with their appropriate dough balls. Can't wait till tomorrow night! :) And I can't wait till next weeks' cook a long! I'll post less pictures then, I promise. :)
