By far the most interesting and delicious thing I've eaten in the last week has been my Polish Easter dinner!
On the menu (clockwise from top left)
Hard boiled eggs, dyed with blueberries
Ham (szynka cygańska)
Kielbasa (Polish sausage)
Cole slaw in a vinaigrette
Polish potato salad
Our family's favorite "pineapple souffle" recipe, which is decidedly not Polish
Bread baked with my great-grandmother's recipe, which my uncle sent us
(Not picture) Poppy seed roll for dessert!
The great thing about Polish Easter is that if you have a good Polish or Slavic deli you can find all the important parts of the meal. If you're in the DC area, I recommend The Kielbasa Factory in Rockville.
Other families do a lot more cooking from scratch than we do and prepare soups or their desserts by hand- perhaps that will be us one day! I did receive a Polish cookbook for my bridal shower...:)
