@rip yep so am I, and my grandparents spoke polish, and never heard of it before either. But I can damn sure put a hurtin on some pierogies and Haluski!!
I miss getting the homemade pierogies from our Polish church down the street that my Grandma and the ladies used to make!! Hard to find down here in Jacksonville except when I can get the wife and girls to make them. Got Grandma's old recipe!!! You can take the boy out of NE PA but you can't take the NE PA out of the boy!!
