Polish Double FAIL

When I started cooking dinner tonight, I was really excited. I have been wanting to try my hand at pierogies for over a year now. I had so many problems with them which were entirely my fault and had nothing to do with the recipe. It started with not rolling out the dough thin enough. Then, I forgot to check the directions one last time and ended up forgetting to boil the first few dumplings. They ended up in the garbage (I'm not a fan of doughy things, and these were extra doughy).

The double comes from the second part of the meal. I was trying to make up for not posting last night by giving you two recipes today (my mom and I went to see Legally Blonde the musical, which was amazing, so I wasn't home to cook). I thought for sure the cabbage kielbasa dish would make up for the yucky pierogies. I was horribly wrong. It was far too sweet and a bit soggy (that may have been my fault too so I don't know). I took two bites and ended up going out to pick up dinner instead. Tomorrow I'll hopefully be back on my game.

Double frustrating. Hope the takeout was delicious!

Since I don't have a clue what either pierogies or kielbasa is, your double fail is lost on me. My Susan also went to see Legally Blonde with a group of her lady friends and Smokey and I stayed home and ate hot dogs.

So rare for you to have a failure and when you do you get two together! Good for you (a) fessing up and (b) picking yourself up and starting all over again! Cue for a song?

Megs - I consoled myself with Wendy's spicy chicken sandwich and a frosty. It made the pain of defeat lessen.

Tulsa Gent - Pierogies are like a potato dumpling/ravioli (think mashed taters in a ravioli shell). Kielbasa is just a Polish style sausage made usually with pork, beef, and chicken (I just used the Hillshire Farms brand). Did Susan love the musical? I know I did!

Anne - Sometimes my life feels like a Disney movie, other times it's a comedy. Yesterday was a dark comedy (almost liek Shaun of the Dead, just without the zombies). What song shall we sing?
