The mushrooms are soaking so that I can make the mushroom soup for tomorrow. I am about to put the plecionka (braided bread) into the oven. I am still working on Christmas cookies too. So obviously, I can't post too much because I am verrrrrryyyy busy preparing for the first Wigilia (traditional Polish Christmas Eve dinner) that I had to cook myself. I think I have things straight in my mind but there doesn't seem enough hours left before the holiday festivities. I am also trying to meld the Polish and Russian traditions to make our own unique family traditions. I better get back in the kitchen. I'll update you tomorrow on how things are progressing.
