Guys let me tell you that if you ever have to cook for yourself, the simplest and most delicious hearty guy food is a plate of pierogi and smoked sausages. All you have to do is boil some water for the pierogi. The sausages, (bought fully cooked from your favorite Polish deli) just need to be warmed in the microwave. There is no need to fry them as you will lose flavor and juices from the meat.
10-12 Pierogi need about 8 min. in a rolling boil, water salted to taste.
Sour cream and bacon bits on the side are a must...
Enjoy! I sure did, and...a nice glass of
beet root juice to cleanse; my after dinner drink!
