Pierogies fill church coffers with dough

Apr 7, 2011 Full story: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Packed with potato and cheese, sauerkraut, cottage cheese or prunes, the Eastern European delicacy with as many spellings as fillings -- pirogi, perogi, pirohy, pyrogy as well as pierogi -- has evolved from a tasty meatless dinner staple to a budget staple for cash-strapped churches throughout the region.

As an African American Eastern European, I must admit that those perogi's are fantabulous eating. They feed that hunger that burdens me during this Lentin season and makes me long for the old country.

There is much to be learned from perogi sales and balancing budgets. Some of the Polish immigrants
knew this when coming to America. The Holy Family
and St.John's Ukrainian have the best, but remember
they are also offered at the Corpus Christi Fish Fry
on Market Street on Fridays. Stop by!!
