Say it with me. .
Vah. . ren. . eh. .chea. .
For the life of me. . I don't know why it is spelled with a W instead of a V. .
you might have guessed if I said started with a V. .
you might have guessed if I would have called it perogies. .
but alas. . I'm a Mennonite gal. . .
and so we say. .
say it again. .
Vah. . ren. .eh. . chea. .
Yes, one of the smartest things I did when my newly acquired husband 30 years ago ..
said .. .stay home and cook .. .
I stayed at home and cooked.
I grew up in a time that women still were often in the home being homemakers. .
it never seemed odd to us that I would do this as well.
I laugh now at the pictures of him before the wedding and then again a year after the wedding.
I fattened that boy up a bit.
I learned to make noodles and vah. . .(say it). . ren. .eh. .chea. .
and made him smile. .
At nineteen years old. . . I understood from my mother. .
. . .that it would be in my best interest to learn to cook. .
almost as good as his mother. .
so that is what I focused on.
His mother is seriously the best cook. . everything she makes is fantastic. .
but. . .
I figured out what her son liked to eat. . .and then . . .
I made it. . .more often than she did. .
and . . .
I had him eating out of my hand. . .for life.
When he came home after a hard day at work ..
there I was. . .with a smirk. . . and a kitchen full of wonderful smells. .
I had learned a few other things from my mom as well. . .
but that is enough of a lesson for today. .
Have a wonderful day my friends. .
oh the recipe. . its on the MGCC blog .. of course.
