Polish Dinner Is Served

My maternal grandparents came to the United States from Poland.

They were both just teenagers and never saw their families in Poland again. When I think of the immensity of that sacrifice, in order to have better lives for all  of us, it's overwhelming.

 Thanks to their sacrifices, my own family and I have good lives, too. Deep gratitude fills my heart.

All my life I have been proud of the Polish part of my heritage.

Sunday, I put together a Polish dinner and trust me, it was a yummy one.

Made "golumpki" or stuffed cabbage, potatoes with onions and salt pork seasoning, and kapusta, a mixture of chopped cabbage and sauerkraut with a little sugar added.

Also bought rye bread because who could have a Polish dinner without it?

Today, I plan to share this feast with several people so that's why I made so much.

The photos shown in this post were all part of the Polish cooking marathon.

  Wish I could send out some bites of the final product!

That looks really tasty and healthy, reminds me of a similar Swedish dish.

I usually don't like cabbage but I worked in a place that had a Polish cook who ran the lunchroom we all ate in and the food was wonderful but sadly I haven't had any since, I haven't been able to cook any of the meals like him.

I do enjoy Polish food, though I haven't had it often.

The immigrants to this country had - and still have - such a risky time. My ancestors came from Ireland to this country. I'm not sure they had much better times here, though. I will say that there were better times ahead for their descendants.

That was delicious looking. I did not know you were Polish. My husband is 100% Polish! So we love the same things.

Love, sandie
