She's here!

Yup, you heard me right. Shifra is here! Her bus was an hour early (2:00pm), which was awesome and gave her more time to unpack and get ready for Shabbos. She is just as sweet as can be, and I feel very lucky that we found her.

In order to make her feel more at home, I made home-made pierogies for dinner. Because we eat fleishig on Shabbos, I needed to find a non-dairy recipe. Which I did, as you can see by the link to the recipe. It was a patchkerai, as my mother would say, and my forearms will never be the same again (from kneading the dough). But, I'm hoping they'll be worth it. I can't wait to see the look on her face when I serve home-made semi-authentic Polish pierogies. :-) Yummmm...

  1. Hi Elana, Mazel Tov on your new arrival. Got any pictures? I'm curious what she looks like. How's here English?
    Love AuntieBeh

  2. So thoughtful of you to prepare those pierogies! Looking forward to hearing how she enjoyed them :-)
