Body Types and dreaming about Heart Attack HeavenPosted: August 3, 2014
You may have seen this Body Type graphic by Gemma Correll before — but dievca is hoping to bring a bit of joy to your day. she is sitting here in the cool morning air, giggling.
The body type that is making her smile the most is the PIEROGI. For a time, every August, her family would have a picnic/family reunion. dievca hesitates to say “family reunion” because ALL were welcome. If you met someone at the ACE hardware store, you invited them. Simple.
(dievca is now singing: “ACE is the place with the helpful hardware man.”)
Whoops – that might be for another post…c’mon dievca don’t get distracted.
At the picnic, the food offerings didn’t include traditional BBQ fare though it did included a Roast Pig on a spit. But, then the food leaned towards Eastern European offerings: Dumplings with filling (pierogies), Stuffed Cabbage (halupki), Polish Sausage (kielbasa), lots of butter, fried onions and sauerkraut~ dievca used to call the picnic:
Heart Attack Heaven.
The tradition has faded as family members have passed away and cousins scattered around the country. dievca is thinking it may be time to revive the tradition and put out an “ALL CALL” to the cousins. The picnic was a great deal of work, but everyone loved it. Our digital age needs to offer more moments of human touching.
OK, the wheels are turning in dievca’s head and she knows that her older cousin is a genius at making halupki (folding those cabbage leaves properly is an art). Time to start texting, e-mailing and calling – let’s put those electronics to humane usage.
