Today’s Dilemma – Balls or Birds?

Yep, I’m one of THOSE. A “coupon clipper”. And this morning I am devoting a tiny chunk of time to “cutting money out of circulars”, with the help of, of course, my two littlest. My three year old is learning how to read and is “delighting” me with every word she reads – “Are you … Continue reading »

A Public Apology to My Mom, and Mrs. Sparkly’s Ten Commandments Award

I am not proud about what I am about to confess to you. Worst of all, I know I will disappoint my mother the most. I committed a HUGE sin in Polish tradition. I used instant potatoes in my pierogie.

Zapiekanki, Dzelten Maize and Part 3 of My Versatile Blogger Nominations!!

My favorite food in Poland (OK, one of my favorite foods in Poland) is zapiekanki, and from sessions at nometne as a child – dzelten maize. The zapiekanki that conjur up the best memories for me were (probably still are) sold by outside vendors near the bus and train stations in Rzeszow. These  are similar to grilled French bread pizzas topped with … Continue reading »

Our dress rehearsal on Saturday for Easter Sunday Mass went flawlessly. Big poofy, pastel dresses on my three littlest girls, and my tween and teen looked elegant in their new clothes. Socks, and shoes were matched and shiny, and ribbons were crisp. Every hair was in place and faces were fresh and glowing. We were … Continue reading »
