Did you know that pierogi is actually plural for pierog? So the term pierogis or pierogies is incorrect. Who knew?
Here are somethings I wish I could get in West Virginia:
Cool Greens (salad/wrap place in OKC)
Brick oven pizza
Real Mexican restaurants
Alfalfa sprouts (can't find them in any grocery store)
Pho (only place is 45 minutes away, and it's mediocre at best)
.. the list goes on.
Back to the little polish dumplings.. The dough was the hardest part. I always have a hard time kneading, and getting a good balance between the sticky/dry dough. I let the dough rest for half an hour, used a pint glass to make circles, and used a fork to crimp the edges. I used this recipe. I froze them before boiling them (I read online that it helps prevent them from busting open). I just simply put them on a baking sheet lined with wax paper & stuck them in the freezer for an hour. Afterwards I threw them into a ziploc bag and called it a day. Next time I think I'll let Mrs. T do the pierogi cooking. This process is wayyyyy too time consuming.

Sorry this blog is looking so crappy. I have no idea how to design a blog- but I'm googling it now, so hopefully this blog will start coming together. If anyone has any advice, I would be forever grateful.
