Someone is demanding to see these, and since I will not be cooking on Easter, here they are:
If last Sunday was for celebrating our Irish heritage with traditional Irish American* food, then this Sunday is for embracing the Polish in our community with Malczewski's Butter Lambs and feasting on Wardynski's Kielbasa and K Sister's Pierogi**.
I'll round out the meal with some pickled beets and crusty rolls and probably won't eat it again for another year, but yum!
I will also catch some flack in the comments because I have yet to procure a box of Fastnaughts, but there is still a week to get them and with three kinds of pierogi, I doubt any of the three of us will leave room for dessert.
Anyway, in case there is flack, I do have slippers:
I like them. They were fun to knit with less sewing up than other origami style slipper patterns and the light weight should be good once Spring arrives.
They did take be two weeks though, I think I started them the day we drove to see Connor and I just finished them this morning. I have been a strange mix of busy and exhausted in these past few weeks.
Part of the fatigue has been the persistently cold weather and I know that the funeral and all the McGuireing took a lot out of me last weekend, but I'm either not bouncing back from chemo or the issue with my calcium level might be a thing.
The first round of foil wrapped bloodwork was borderline high and one of my docs thinks that is okay, but the other (the one I like more) actually bothered to pull years of records together and now he is sending me for new/more tests this week. The results and hopefully either a diagnosis or proof that I'm just getting old, will be straightened out by the beginning of next week.
Also, I will start another round of the knee injections this week. I'm hoping that they will work again and buy me another six months or so before I have to decide about knee replacement. The weight loss has helped, but not enough to put it off forever.
Anyway, I'm due in the kitchen to start cooking, I'll be back in a few days, or someone will.
*I know that no one in Ireland eats Corned Beef, but it is good stuff.
** Someone serves Pierogis with tomato sauce, so very, very wrong!
