It was a hard choice to come up with our ‘International Recipe’ post. Food is a very social thing for my sist3rs and me, and I love all food, pretty much, which is why I bust it so hard at the gym--so I don’t bust it in my pants!
Alrighty! I reside in Edmonton--home of many Ukranians and even more Ukranian jokes…such as this one:
A Ukranian immigrant goes to the Department of Motor Vehicles to apply for a driver’s license. He has to take an eye test. The clerk shows him a card with the letters:
C Z W I X N O S T A C Z
“Can you read this?” the clerk asks.
“Read it?” the Ukranian guy replies, “I know the guy.”
...Amazing comfort food.
This is a recipe that Reno-Man’s Mom makes. I love it!! She makes it with the huge Macaroni. It is so yummy…I would even crave it if I wasn’t pregnant!! Of course…It is GREEK.
Lise, your recipe reminds me of when you visited me in India. I wished you could have have pulled a bag of frozen perogies out of your suitcase upon arrival--not that I didn't appreciate the bagels and English muffins! Making perogies from scratch in my dungeon/kitchen in India with you is one of my fondest memories of my time there.
I love international food. We've even planned vacations around what we'd like to eat. I kid you not.
JB would not let me share his recipe for Donairs--a Lebanese dish, which is popular in eastern Canada. It's similar to Gyros and Donar Kebabs--but not quite. I found a recipe at Recipezaar.com which looks similar--but not quite.
I thought we would try something new in posting our recipes...what do you think of Key Ingredient? Fear not--these three recipes will still be available to download and print on our snazzy custom recipe cards (see below).
What's your favorite International food? We would love your recipe!
