“Into the soup, when it was simmering, she followed teaspoons of halushki-a paste of raw egg and semolina, beaten together with salt and herbs -which fluffed up into dumplings that crumbled on your tongue.”

Hubby‘s family background is Ukranian, and my MIL made halushki, but hers included grated raw potato and were definitely not fluffy. They were incredibly heavy, but very filling, and delicious. #buddyread

Emilymdxn Love this book and LOVE Ukrainian food! 2d
ValerieAndBooks I am just starting this section (chapter 5). We should try making some Ukrainian dishes!! That would be new to me. The closest thing to an Ukrainian relative that I have is my aunt‘s husband, Uncle Arnie, whose parents emigrated from there to Canada 😊 1d
Lynnsoprano @ValerieAndBooks That would be fun! There are so many similarities among Eastern European cuisines, with subtle differences in the names. I have a Slovak cookbook that my MIL gave me and I make stuffed cabbage (halupki) regularly. I have also made pierogies from scratch, but that‘s a project 😄 It‘s fun to do together with friends-something to think about 😊 1d

Oh, those are apples! So much for my plan to use tomatoes as a prop 😂. @Lynnsoprano ‘s cover is much more eye-catching. We‘re embarking on our third annual #buddyread with this novel.

Lynnsoprano My goodness, that cover is so different! Already enjoying this. I only had a little reading time today, and I‘m already through four chapters. 2d

It took us a while to get it together this time, but @ValerieAndBooks and I are about to embark on our third annual #buddyread. I‘ve been meaning to read this for a while; I bought it for @Alisnazzy two years ago at Heffers in Cambridge. It also has one of the most intriguing covers I‘ve seen. I here I go!

MommyWantsToReadHerBook I really enjoyed this one and the other books of hers I've read 2d
ValerieAndBooks Ooh, a different cover! I‘ll post mine real soon, and respond to your email 😊. Looking forward to reading and discussing with you. 2d
