Unfortunately not on a cruise. brought up on them and still cook them myself (only because mom isn't here)hi Romrai,
my usual are. Perogies, petiheh(sp?) potato dumplings with/ cottage cheese, cheddar, onions, bacon, plums. wrapped in dough. boiled and/or fried in butter. served with butter and onions or in the case of plums, brown sugar.
holobski/cabbage rolls. my favorite are with bacon and onion, (no ground beef) and rice.
kobassa/garlic sausage....speaks for itself.
My daughter in law is Ukranian. She makes a lot of dishes with potatoes, soups (always with potatoes), pulmeni (meat dumplings/sour cream), buckwheat (but calls it Kashka, with a K), and also eats from the russian/ukranian stores and restaurants, gizzard stew, tongue, lots of different types of sausages, and smoked cheeses. My son went to the Ukraine with her last year and tried all sorts of new things. However, what is very common is that foods grown in the summer are canned for all winter use, so they would not have strawberry preserves till winter, and some vegetables that were canned. Generally, the Ukranians use all parts of the animal and parts that Americans would normally toss in the garbage are eaten regularly i.e. pig's ear, cartiledge, tongue gizzards etc. We have learned to eat some new dishes and happily give her parts that we don't normally eat too!Great answer, Shelly, sounds like your daughter in law is ethnic Russian from Ukraine, because pelmeni are definitely Russian food.
