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!
