    I had a baked sweet potato and some pita bread I needed to use, and I ran across a recipe for black bean, sweet potato burritos. I switched it up a little with some corn salsa and arugula, toasted two pita halves, and voila! A delicious, healthy lunch. The leftover sweet potato/bean mixture will go in the fridge for later this weekend.
    Count your blessings!

    Was it "gołąbki" (cabbage rolls) by chance?

    The aromas wafting from the kitchen right now are making me hungry! Hubby is experimenting with a new recipe (or non-recipe: a little of this, some of that...): Asian pulled-pork sandwiches -- from what he's told me, it's a takeoff of the pulled pork we've had at barbecue joints. He's using a lean pork tenderloin from a local organic rancher/butcher, and his marinade and sauce feature Asian spices and flavors. For go-withs, we're having Trader Joe's kimchee (instead of cole slaw) and sweet potato fries.

    Since I have the job of sommelière*, I've chosen a white blend: 2010 Apothic White.

    * Technically, "sommelier" doesn't have a feminine form, but I think it should. My French clients -- especially the women -- agree.

    My mom made a dish of rolled cabbage stuffed with bacon, rice, and tomatoes stewed in a tomato/beef stock. The rolls were skewered with 2 toothpicks each.

    She called it "halupkis" and learned it from our Polish great-grandmother. I have never made it. It takes hours of prep and cook time.

    I Googled "haluski" for a recipe and learned that it's sauteed shredded cabbage and onions with Polish egg dumplings. It sounds scrumptiious!

    I grew up eating holubchi (everyone spells it different ). My mom makes it pretty good but my Polish/Ukrainian grandmother's was amazing. Germans also make it. My grandmother used cubed back bacon, but most people use hamburger meat. I'm way too lazy to make them myself, but there are still some good places in my home province (which has a large Ukrainian population) that you can buy them. The dumplings we called something entirely different & I don't want to attempt a spelling - those my mom never made, but we buy them at Christmastime. The place she gets them sells the traditional cabbage ones as well as ones stuffed with cheese or ground pork/beef (delicious).

    No, perogies are different. The cabbage dumplings are more like stuffed mini-buns. (I've purchased a very similar item from a local Chinese bakery). Perogy dough is different - they are boiled first, then you mix them all in butter. You can fry them up after they're boiled & add onions & bacon. I rarely eat perogies any more (perogies & holubchi are staples at wedding dinners and holidays in my home province, particularly in the rural area my husband is from). My kids love them, though.
