    I have till the end of the month at my clinic and I'm tired of feeling guilty every time I just get a regular turkey sandwich at the next door Polish deli (since they have a lot of stuff that's probably not readily accessible in most of the US).

    Any suggestions? Preferably snack-wise, that doesn't require either refrigeration or immediate eating. :)

    Chruschiki. :) They are pretty bland, in my opinion, but there is powdered sugar...:lol:

    2nd this! My family makes them around Christmastime and I love them. I just love Polish food in general since my grandmother was Polish.

    Are you more interested in sweet goodies or savory goodies?

    Babka and poppyseed roll. Just be prepared to gain 10 pounds from eating them like I did. :mad:

  7. How about pączki (pronounced ponch-key) or some type of kielbasa?

    oh...and here is another vote for the the babka and chruschiki. My babcia just passed away and she was an excellent baker...her homemade chruschiki was one of my favorite desserts.

    Do they have things on display or just a menu? I'd start with something and work my way through them all. :D

    Stuffed cabbage? It's one of my favorites. Not really a snack, rather a nice lunch. Chruschiki are pure evil. :p

    Also, nalisniki are a kind of a savory crepe.

    Sirnik is sort of a cheesecake but not nearly as sweet, which is a good thing. Hey, where's Ziggy?

    How about good 'ole Perogies?!!
    Perogies are potato filled pasta served with either sour cream and applesauce or onion and saurkraut. Personally, I like them plain and cold.
    Do we have a "yum" emoticon? :swoon:

    sometimes I fry them in butter
    also good with marina sauce or salsa
    I used to make them from scratch like Grandma, but the frozen ones from the market are pretty good

    Just got some chruschiki with my sandwich today. They definitely look evil so this may have to be a one time treat. :lol:

    Thanks for the suggestions so far!

    I love mine sauted in Dill Butter and served with Sour Cream!

    (the only other think I love more is the Romanian version... the dough is more like a noodle with a cheese potato filling and we fry them and serve with carmelized onion & bacon)

    If they have fresh or smoked kielbasa (kobash) it is to die for. My neighbors randomly show up if they smell it on the grill. We bribe them :D
