Growing up was ALWAYS pork and sauerkraut... good luck, my Grandmother always said. I'm searching for some place in my area for HOME MADE peirogies to go with!
BEST New Years Eve was back with Y2K... when the world as we knew it was gonna come crashing down?? Niece was about 3 & her Dad was a computer guy who HAD to go to work on NYE... for fear of the apocapylpse!?! He got paid VERY WELL, btw!! Since they wouldn't have been in the "clubbing" scene... SIL threw a "slumber party". You were SUPPOSED to show up in PJs... I had NO qualms stopping to pick up crab claw platter in them, tho niece was MORTIFIED!?! Another stipulation was NO regular party food... no normal veggie/dip platter! Not a big liver fan, but made Martha S's pate... had apples in it and was a hit. Brought escargot... swimming in garlic and butter... with plenty of bread for dipping.
Crashed on her couch after sparklers and fireworks on her deck... in our PJs.
