Jason’s dad came to visit last week. We did a lot of exploring and had a great few days together. Jason had to work on Friday. John asked me if I wanted to surprise him with homemade pierogi. Of course I said yes!
Pierogi are a big part of their family story. John came to the U.S. as a child and grew up making them with his mom. When Jason was little, he remembers sitting around the table making them with his grandmother. They’re kind of a big deal.
We made them from Cioci Jasi (Aunt Jane)’s recipe, but I can’t wait to experiment with my own fillings. When I have, I’ll be sure to share.
