The intruder has disappeared, and blogger hasn't yanked my account for nudity yet. So, life is pretty good.
It's colder than a whore's heart in these parts. It's a mean hard cold. I can hardly describe it. The wind chill is up in the 40 Celsius range and making it hard to even get in and out of your car without turning into a icicle. But the good news is that it will be a balmy 4 degrees by Sunday.
Poor Penny. She can't stay out long enough to have a dump. She has been holding it for two days now. This morning I gave her permission to take a dump on the deck....but she will have no part of me watching her dump. She will occasionally take a whizz out there and come running back in...which is okay, I can just shovel that piss Popsicle off. But a dump..nope, that is a private matter. It would be easier shovelling off a frozen turd than piss Popsicles.
It's Ukrainian Christmas today! My sister in law is Ukrainian and she made a dish I dearly loved at her house at our regular Christmas this year. I'm not a big eater, but I just loved this dish. So, on Ukrainian Christmas Day I will give you the recipe: It's a real big recipe, meant for 30 hungry Ukrainians after they have come off the fields after feeding and sodomizing their livestock. oops ..too much information?
NALYSNYKY - Cheese rolls
1 1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup melted butter
1 tsp. salt
2 cups flour
Beat the eggs. Add milk, water, salt, butter and flour. Keep beating until well mixed.
Always start frying on a hot pan or the pancakes will stick. After the first pancakes, turn heat a bit lower. I never turn my pancakes over, when done just slide the pancake onto the plate. Always grease the pan with a little oil before making a new batch. Don't make them too big.
2 lbs. of cottage cheese
Salt/pepper to taste
1/4 cup of whipping cream if cheese seems to dry
Mix it all up, and if it is too dry add some more cream.
Spread on the baked pancakes and roll them up.
Put butter between each layer. Bake 1 1/2 to 2 hours in a slow oven until puffy.
This recipe comes from a Ukrainian Community Cookbook. I love the way they give the information like they are sitting at the table with you.
I changed it up a bit because my SIL said she made the pancakes too big the first time she made them. They are actually crepes with a filling. Gord and I fought for the last one. I won after I put him in a head lock and gave him a nuggy. I'm surprisingly strong when I love what I am eating.
Merry Christmas to all my Ukrainian friends... and to Joan...my SIL you can now safely take down your tree.
