Tetlak Family Pierogi Recipe

Merry 2013 Chitlins! I hope you enjoyed your holiday as much as I did. Mine was mostly relaxing. We had a minor incident involving the puppy, a bucket of chocolate covered raisins, and  a frantic two hours on the phone with poison control. Good news though: the puppy is fine, dinner was only delayed two hours, and Christmas wasn’t ruined. Hooray!

So perhaps you remember before the break how I spent an entire day with the female members of The BF’s family making approximately 4.2 million pierogies. It wasn’t so bad really. I mean, despite starting at 8am and finishing well after 2pm. We did get to eat all the defects, and we made some fresh pasta, and there was an amazing lunch spread. Plus I have about 20lbs of pierogi chillin’ in my freezer.

I took a bunch of pictures and got the recipes for Christmas! This is mostly a photo essay with a recipe at the bottom. Apologies if the photos are a bit crummy, I was too lazy to edit and this was with my old camera. ;)

Cheers to a happy 2013!

Cold Noodles with Peanut Sauce

Now I know cold noodles aren’t everyone’s bag. I’m not a fan of cold soups and some people love gazpacho. In the same way, some people really only prefer their noodles hot. I don’t necessarily go out in search of cold noodles; usually it just happens because I’m too lazy to heat up my leftover spaghetti (or I’m too tired to wrangle with the microwave which is on top of our fridge which basically requires me to use a step stool to reach it comfortably). But sometimes, I also actually just crave cold noodles.
