We scored a pirok from the teenager's g/f's mother. YUM! We had some before I took a picture. It's another dish I've only every eaten in Kodiak and Unalaska but sooo good people are missing out! Pie crust with white rice, salmon, veggies and boiled eggs...yum!!
I've never seen kulich in this form, but it's a rich pastry-like yummy bread with a lemon-cinnamon flavor who cares what the shape it
I don't know if pancit is as popular elsewhere as it is in Kodiak and Unalaska...it's sooooo good! The eggrolls -- lumpia are almost as yummy, but they're deep-fried and make my stomach hurt after 1 or 2. It freezes well, we had some last night and enough for 3 more dinners (I love to not have to cook!)
I froze the enchiladas for a dinner when the cheese-hating capt. is out at sea.
Tables laden with delicious treats went all around the gym.
My kid has fans! Linda came for his creme brulee!
This picture is awful..but was the only place big enough to put everything...we were running late of course. They all looked yummy in person. He didn't share even one cream puff or creme brulee with his sister, she was mad!
He got a little torch for Christmas!
I wanted a "pro" to put the finishing touches on my little cakes.
I actually crashed at 8pm last night and slept for 11 hours! I must've needed it.
We baked in-between all the other activities. The auction was completely overwhelming there was maybe 300 delicious-looking items offered. The auctioneer let us buy some before she started, SCORE! I bought my favorites, from my favorite cooks that I buy from every year! It's so funny, people are almost hurt if you don't buy theirs, and everything looks so delicious....I grabbed my 3 dishes and was home in less than an hour. Pancit (Filipino noodles with veggies and meat) from my good friend Ana is a must! I wanted tamales, Carolina's mom declared hers were better than Irma's (fighting words around here LOL) but everyone else voted for enchiladas, I caved and got enchiladas. My last purchase was some kulich-like bread (Russian Easter bread which was braided, not in the usual coffee can shape, but very delicious) We didn't get any desserts, we baked all day...so over anything with sugar. And I've got to pack...I will eat nothing but fiber and veggies for the next week at rural nutrition class --I'm glad LOL..I've got to get ready to leave now...
