Mmm... Syrnyky

This past Friday from 3:00 – 4:30 PM was Polish and Ukrainian Happy Hour at Pitt’s SLI. Accordingly, my Ukrainian classmates and I were put to work at noon making a traditional Ukrainian dessert, syrnyky, for 120+ people. The result was delicious and a big hit among the other students. (To me, it tasted like fried cheesecake.) The recipe, provided by my professor, is as follows:

Syrnyky (cottage cheese fritters)

мій професор (my professor) with the syrnyky

(syrnyky is plural form of the word syrnyk, the first syllable is stressed)

500g of cottage cheese (about a pound)
half a glass of sugar
3 eggs
2 cups of flour
Half of one stick of melted butter
1 cup of sour cream
a little salt

Whisk eggs with salt and sugar into thick froth. Add minced cottage cheese, one and a half (1.5) glasses of flour. Knead thoroughly. Put the dough onto the board sifted with flour, and form a thick roll. Slice it into pieces as thick as a finger. Put each slice into flour, and make its form like a cutlet with a knife:

Fry in butter in a frying pan at the medium heat, both sides. Serve in sour cream.

The finished product.
(Smačnoho = Bon Appetit)

Friday night was a fun one! I went with some friends in SLI to “Srpska Noc” at Pittsburgh’s local Serbian Club. We listened to live Serbian music and watched locals dance the kolo all night long.

You know, I might as well be in eastern Europe already!

But I love fish, cheese and meat, and I eat everything, but only in small quantities if it's rich.

Call me All-American, but I love Ham and Cheese sandwiches. And not just any old ham and cheese sandwich... My mother's is the best. I've tried many times to make these sandwiches on my own, but it's never the same.

Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using? I'm planning
to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.

P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
