Keeping with tradition – Our Good Friday meal.

Tomorrow is Good Friday, a day our family does honor.  We happen to live in a very catholic town, with the church bells ringing every 15 minutes between 6:00 a.m. and 10 p.m. (which I love!).  Everything is closed as it is a Christian holiday observed  here in Bavaria.

Growing up, we always had the family over in the evening for pierogi’s and potato pancakes, being a meatless day.  If this polish dish sounds familiar, I did write about these pierogi’s  around Christmas.  If you would like to read about this unique dish, you can find that post and the recipe by clicking here.

I know there are many different fillings for them nowadays, but I stick to making them with the dry cottage cheese, just as my Grandpa did.

So tomorrow, keeping with a tradition from my childhood, I will be making delicious polish pierogi.  Making traditional foods from scratch and of course eating them is one of the things I truly enjoy.  It has been fun integrating my husbands Bavarian traditions and mine to create our family tradition.

I will see you next week with details on an upcoming cooking challenge I am excited to be participating in and…

and the results about my closet & clothing goals.  Did I succeed in creating a successful wardrobe that fits in one suitcase?

Lastly, I wish you and your families a  joyous and blessed Easter to all who celebrate.  Enjoy a wonderful weekend!

  1. Loved reading this entry, as always! The family had pierogi on Good Friday, too. Alas, I was too sick to attend. In fact, I was supposed to make them and make potato pancakes. Thankfully, Fred brought me home a plate. Hope you had a happy Easter! Love your flowers. ❤ xo

    1. I hope you are feeling better soon. I know it is hard to miss out on family functions. There is always next year. You can even plan ahead of time and freeze the pierogis but the tradition of making them the morning of is really special too. We did have a nice, quiet Easter and my tulips are all over the garden, but today it is snowing and sleeting so I am not sure what will happen to them! xo
