Bierock Bake Fundraiser 2011

That time again. Time for our Golden Wheat Chapter AHSGR bierock bake fundraiser! We're getting it down to working like a well oiled machine. Well... there were a few glitches, but all went well. First have to thaw the frozen dough...
The meat and cabbage mixture was made up the day before and then reheated and measured out...

Everyone working hard...

The dough is rolled out to just the right size...

...and the filling is folded up all nice and neat and place on a baking sheet.

They're set aside to rise up all plump and pretty...

Then baked all toasty brown and brushed with butter. Mmmmm.....

And the smell... like walking into a bakery. Once they've cooled they're boxed up nicely for pick up or delivery.

All total there were 50 dozen made and people were already placing orders for our next bierock fundraiser.

We have a great time working together and really enjoy this ethnic G/R way to raise funds for our Golden Wheat Chapter of the American Historical Society of Germans from Russia!

Good to see you sticking to traditional ways of cooking. Here our Easter hot cross buns have been tarnished with chocolate buttons. It's gotten to the point now, that it's a hard task to stop at one. Much the same for bierocks, I'd imagine.

Occasionally we attend the nearby Jagerstubn restaurant at the Hubertus Club that specialises in German and Austrian food. I have to say I loved the food and the serve size was on the expected Australian scale of huge.

On a side note, I've just finished watching Donald Trump on TV talking about the possibility of him running for President in the 2012. Would he get your vote?

PS My nose op is on Monday, wish me luck!

Take Care,

Peter - It's always wonderful to see you stop by my blog with a comment. People in these parts really love the bierocks. We kind of cheat when making them by using frozen rolls instead of making the dough ourselves. Takes a little less time this way.

In our German/Russian communities, especially in the Amish & Mennonite, food is another way of saying "LOVE". I think more so in the past due to all the health consciousness. The women were especially pridefull of being good cooks.

Trump? Absolutely NOT. We've got too many businesses running the country with politicians in there hip pockets as it is.

My thoughts and prayers will be with on Monday. I hope it won't be too painful.

Just popped by to say thank you for your kind words. Much appreciated.

I was very nervous prior to taking off the bandages but to my relief everything looks just fine.

The stitches come out on Monday and then it will be time to go back to work, unfortunately!

Take Care,

Peter - So very glad to hear that all has gone well. When you get things back to normal I hope you'll update us on your grandbaby. We haven't heard about her in a while and they DO grow up so very fast. :)
