Each year I like to make perogies at Christmas time. This year I invtied a few friends over to help. The photos are not a good depiction of how to make the perogies, and somehow we managed to get zero photos of an actual finished and cooked one. I can only attribute this to the fact that Padraic took most of the photos and as such is not aware of the high level of standard required for leetonium.com, and also that we drank an astounding amount of liquor that night. So this is a little spotty, but trust me, we had a blast.

Here is Dan carefully measuring flower for the dough.

Jennifer looked up other recipes for dough because she doubted the one we were using. (Both recipes turned out ok.)

Dan looking skeptical. He kept trying to avoid the alcohol because he had a 6am flight the next day.

Some of the dough rolled out and ready to be stuffed.

A self portrait of your photographer. He's got nice, clean nostrils that look well groomed.

A shot of the assembly line.

John on the phone with Patricia. He brought the 1.5 liter bottle of Ketel One, so you can blame him for the lousy documentation.

Many perogies and drinks later, we broke out the tambourine and the guitar.

We'd pull up song lyrics on the laptop. Padraic would play the song on the guitar, John would keep time with the tambourine, and we'd all sing.

Here Dan and Jennifer crank out perogies and sing along to one of many U2 songs that Padraic can play. (He can play about a zillion songs it seems.)

Dan took a turn on the guitar too.

That's it, thanks for looking.
