Perogie Making Day
One perogie at a time! We made over 140 perogies and they are delicious. We tested some for dinner last night - yum!
It was always tradition that my husband's family celebrated Christmas Eve and my family Christmas Day so it always worked out. When my MIL couldn't manage it anymore my husband and I took over the tradition of making and hosting the dinner on Christmas Eve.
I make Polish food for dinner - homemade perogies, cabbage rolls and patichky (meat on a stick) among other things and everyone is very happy about it! It is a lot of work and takes a lot of time but it really is worth it. I always make way more than is needed and everyone gets to take home leftovers....it is tradition!
We still celebrate as a family and open our gifts on Christmas day but that meal is usually more low key now and much more relaxed.
