Last night we had our twelve-dish meatless Christmas Eve meal. I’ve invited over some of my friends as my daughter and I don’t have any family here. What a great night we had! One of the Russian girls said that it was a blast from a past, in a fun way 🙂 We all stay until 2 am and if it wouldn’t be a Sunday night (many had to go to work today) we could have easily stayed another hour or so.
This is what we had :
- Pickled mushrooms
- Roasted Peppers
- Salad “Vinegret”. Sounds like “Vinaigrette” but it’s not the oil-and-vinegar dressing in this case.
- Borsch / (no, this is not a typo. There is no “t” in this word in Ukrainian, Russian and Polish! Here is the actual word written in Cyrillic: Борщ)
- Cabbage Rolls
- Whole roasted stuffed fish
- Potato-Fried Onion Varenyky
- Cabbage Varenyky
Herring, pickled mushrooms and sauerkraut were store-bought. Everything else my daughter and I made from scratch, including Kolach. I will be sharing some of these recipes in my posts.
