As many of you know or can guess from our blog a lot of our life revolves around food – eating out together or with friends, having friends in for meals, visiting Winnipeg (which is always about how much we can eat) and traveling and enjoying new restaurants and tastes wherever we go. As a wind-up to 2011 we decided to look back at some of our favorite meals and experiences of the year. We created a photo set of the most memorable ones and below is a list of the location, the meal, why it was great and the blog post we wrote about it.
January 6th is Ukrainian Christmas Eve and even though the perogies in this post were made in December it was great to have over some good friends to share in our traditions and serve them a host of recipes past down from my mom. The only time I actually like to cook is for someone else. This year’s dinner will include homemade perogies and cabbage rolls of course, kubasa shipped from Winnipeg, stuffing, ham, and this year I made my own pickled beets and pickles.
