Grandma would make cabbage and potato pierogi. Excellent with keilbasa. Considered a Polish Dumpling. We would have them every Christmas.
4 c. flour
6 Tbsp cottage cheese (dry large curd)
1 stick butter (softened)
1 c. milk
Mix all ingredients until rolled into ball. Knead dough for 5 minutes. or until dough is smooth and elastic. Pull off 1 inch pieces then flatten into circles about 1/8 inch thick, then fill. Boil in water for about 10-12 minutes. Drain. Fry in butter. Top with sour cream or lots of melted butter with sauteed onions.
Filling various types:
1. Mashed potatoes and cottage cheese with a little butter.
2. Mashed potatoes with American cheese and some grated onion.
3. Sauerkraut with sauteed onions and bacon.
4. Cabbage (soak in water over night in the fridge) finely diced.
Our brain needs us to forget to stay healthy. Odd to think of forgetting instead of remembering! Our brains are built to to retain valuable input and to discard useless information, without this ability we would develop serious mental conditions.
Instead of stating goals in years research has found by breaking down the time to days makes it easier to do. Or if you break it down to months, weeks, or minutes.
Take exercise for example. If you state I’ll do 5 minutes of exercise each day, it seems easier and doable. Then because you’ve done your 5 minutes and it didn’t seem long at all you may find yourself feeling like doing more! Just because you set an easy and reasonable expectation down.
You might surprise yourself by accomplishing more easier. And we all like easy! Studies show that by looking at time in smaller units help us achieve our goals. Long term goals seem closer and appear to be more urgent.
By accomplishing our goals we improve our sense of self. We improve our lives and make things easier. I like to make things simple. Sometimes it’s the little things that make the biggest difference.
What things have you accomplished? Or what do you need to?

Our body functions on electrical impulses. These messages are then relayed to our brain and we interpret them. We have a very complex nervous system, it controls our bodies and allows for movement, sensory input and our very thoughts. We are a very complex organism. Evolution took a long time to make us how we are today.
Did you know your muscles can remember actions? If you were to say take your car out and repeatedly put it into a spin on an icy or snowy parking lot (or any safe area) your body would remember. You might save a life someday by preparing your body to act from memories.
Be aware as the hotter weather comes around to make sure lighters are stored properly. This lighter blew up and could have caused a lot of damage. Not everyone gets a second chance.
Lighters left in cars can often over heat with temperatures exceeding 120 degrees. With BBQ season coming around it’s easy to see matches and lighters being left out by the grill. They should be stored out of the sun and in an area free from any flammable material.
Camping season has already started for some and with Memorial Day right around the corner the fire risk increases. Take the Smokey the Bear pledge to help prevent forest fires. There’s already been more than half a million acres burned this year.
Please check on your elderly neighbors as they can often be forgetful and not realize the danger. You just might save lives! Young children are often fascinated with fires, make sure they understand the risk.
It seems like every time I went to Grandma’s house she was baking bonitza. She would have me recite back her instructions and ingredients. If you like bread and butter and cottage cheese, you’ll like this! It can be eaten warm or cold.
