To kick off no-spend November, we spent our entire Sunday afternoon in the kitchen.
We made a giant dough baby ...
And then made four different kinds of perogies - at least 10 dozen total!
We've had the idea for a while now, of doing fusion perogies with some of our favourite types of cuisines. We're both part Ukrainian, so we're very familiar with traditional potato and cheddar filled perogies, but we wanted to get a little creative with them.
We made some with an Indian samosa-style potato filling:
Korean perogies, with potato, gochujang and kimchi:
And gorgeous perogies with potato, beet, goat cheese and dill:
We also made some more traditional perogies, with potato, cheddar, onion and bacon:
In all the excitement, and mess of making a bunch of perogies, we also cooked up a ham dinner, with scalloped potatoes and peas.
We'll be enjoying the leftovers for a few days, and we're going to use the bone to make borscht soup.
How was your weekend?
Do you have anything fun planned for November?
