Oh rather, "Stuff I Made Well Before I Was Back on a Plane to China."
(Side note: I swear, I would have been amazing during the Depression because I have some freak obsession with using things on hand and generally maximizing ingredients. Sometimes this means that I'll buy, like, 7 new ingredients just to make something awesome out of a lonely carrot that didn't make it into the previous day's pot. Which is totally not Depression-style at all. But still, no carrot is left behind! I can feel good about that!)
So there I was, restive and debating between some sort of fried potato-cake or pierogis. Oh course, the pierogi takes it every time. So this has all just been a long way of showing you the homemade pierogis filled with mashed potatoes and boudin blanc and fried with caramelized apples and onions that I made. Boiled and then fried, hey hey they were good. Thanks for your time.
By the way, there's something satisfying about stuffing a pierogi, ravioli, samosa, or what-have-you. Go on, get your counter all flour-y. Your soul will thank you.
I did have a (good-sized) galette des rois individuelle on Wednesday, however. I was going to share it with my deskmate, but she was in a really long meeting and I was weak and, damn, if the whole thing wasn't gone before she returned. Of note is that there is no "prize" in an indiviudally sized galette des roi. Unless I ate it.... hmmm.... Also, sorry Virginie!
