“Winning is not a sometime thing, it is an all the time thing. You don’t do things right once in a while – you do them right all the time.”
On our recent trip to Seattle’s historic Pike’s place Market, our friends recommended that we try out the Piroshky from the Piroshky Piroshky. We readily and greedily agreed and put it at the top of our list when we visited the market.
The day was warm and sunny. Oh yes! We did get sunshine and warmth in the middle of a Seattle winter. So we set out to visit the market and stopped by this little shop. There was a long queue, but it moved pretty quickly. The aromas wafting from the shop were making us hungrier by the minute.
As we had indulged in some delectable croissants for breakfast, We settled for savory Piroshky. It really was hard to not overindulge in the delicious pies. Did I just say pies? Yes! Piroshky or Pirozhki is a small pie originating from Russia. Made with a yeast based dough and usually with a filling, these are great as a snack. The fillings can be savory, sweet, meat, vegetables or a combination meats and veggies. And you can either fry them or bake them.
I wanted to recreate the yeasty ball of goodness in my kitchen and ended up making my own concoction for the filling. I did however adapt my dough recipe from this very beautiful looking Piroshki that the talented Yelena Strokin shared on her blog :- Cooking Melangery .
These are going to be featured on my coffee table come this Sunday when the Broncos play against the Sea Hawks in the Superbowl XLVIII. Of course the boys are going to bring the Vince Lombardi Trophy home! We will sit back and enjoy the game with some finger food and the Piroshky are a perfect game food. Did I say sit back? OK.. we will not be sitting back.. it wouldn’t be a Super Bowl if the hearts did not skip a beat or two and we didn’t shout at the TV and offer unsolicited advice to the boys to get it right and applause with all fervor when they do something right – like score a touchdown. Well you know the drill.
The best thing about the Piroshky is that you can make them ahead of time and just enjoy the game! #UnitedinOrange! #Go Broncos!
