The Polish in Me!

My Dad’s side of the family has always celebrated Christmas on Christmas Eve.  We would all gather at Gramma and Grampa’s house for Polish sausage, ham, kluskis, and various other foods and presents.  After Grampa passed away and my husband and I bought a house, I started having Christmas Eve!  I make a few pounds of Polish sausage, Gram still makes her kluskis, and a few other foods.  A traditional Polish Christmas Eve wouldn’t have any meat but we just can’t give up our Polish sausage…

Anyway, this year, with the help of my darling cousin, we made pierogies from her Grammie’s recipe.  Sour cream and chive and cheese stuffed peirogies…I can’t wait to eat them.

Today I attempted 2 new Polish cookies- kruschiki and kolacky.  I was only going to make one, forgot which one, and when Gram started talking about kruschiki I told that’s what I was making…well, it wasn’t.  So I made that too!

The kruschiki came out great and tastes sooo good!

However, my kolacky didn’t turn out so well.  While it does taste good the corners didn’t stay pinched and my filled flowed all over the cookie sheets.  They don’t look too pretty but I’ll post them anyway!

Kolacky- not so pretty

Our Christmas Eve meal is one of my favorite tradions; what are some of yours?

Scrappin Party Invitation

My oldest daughter will be 10 in just a couple of weeks and we’re getting ready for her scrappin’ memories party!  We came up with a great idea for themed invitations- film canisters!  A few simple steps (listed under Crafts and Projects) and we had a unique invitation sure to be remembered!

We have a lot planned for the girls.  Some of these girls have been friends since kindergarten and are now in 5th grade- there will be a lot of pictures and memories to be talked about.  The girls will be making scrapbook pages for each other and get their own jourals to decorate and write letters to each other in.  Hopefully it’ll be something cherished to look back in another 10 years!
