    Thanks for posting this – it brought back so many memories for me! My grandmother always made kapusta- stuffed-pirogies for the holidays. I remember eating it, but it’s been so long since she passed away, I completely forgot what it was even called! Love your mummers video :)

    It’s been a very long time, but I think my Polish Grandmother made this with kielbasa. Great post! Love your family photos and video. Thanks for sharing.

    Love the story, pics, and especially the video. Your mom has some moves!! Oh, and the bowl in the background of the first pic – the one w the chicken on it – my mother has that too! Once I saw that I had to see what recipe you posted!!

      Someone just told me it’s called friendship pyrex – it was also my nana’s – fun that you recognized it!

    Oh Deanna! Love love love this post. It’s something about this time of the year that makes us all nostalgic, but that video of chaos in the kitchen and dancing is just love all round. I bet eating fermented foods helped counter the excesses of Christmas too…..traditional combos have hidden secrets, don’t they. Wishing you a wonderful family time this year. xx

    Deanna,
    I’ve never had this dish but I can guarantee you that my husband would love this dish and he’d be asking for more. Cabbage is very common in Spanish cuisine. I guess you could consider it lucky since your family always shows up when it’s served.

      I didn’t realize cabbage was so common in Spanish cuisine -you’ll have to try it for your husband :)

      And I liked hearing about your great grandma’s mac & cheese on new years. These are my favorite ReDux posts, when you get to hear about family food traditions :)

    Sauerkraut was when I was still at home always the first food we ate when coming home from the New Year’s celebration after midnight. We ate it with blood and liver sausage and cured ham. It is said that you would never run out of money when your first food in the new year is sauerkraut.

    I grew up just north of Philly, and watching the Mummers was a big part of our New Years day too. We only traveled down into the city a few times to see it live. But I loved to sit on the couch for hours and watch the costumes. I love the video of your mom. How funny! It totally brought it all back! And how the heck did you score Mummers playing at your wedding? That must have been the COOLEST!

      Yay, a fellow Mummers fan! The Mummers are for hire year round (except New Year’s Day I guess) so we hired part of the Avalon String Band for 20 minutes to make an appearance :)

    Cara Deanna, Love this story…my grandma was from Slovakia (or the Slovak part of Czechoslovakia) and these kinds of dishes were on the menu. Even if not exact version that you put. So , I must make this and will pin it now on my RECIPES TO TRY!!! We have a lot in common-I grew up about an hour from you. Happy New Year-wishing you and your beautiful family lots of good health and happiness for 2014. xo Mary

    Sauerkraut is a family tradition in South Central Texas! Most don’t realize, but we have ‘stout’ German & Polish & Czech roots in many parts of Texas. You should join us for Wurstfest in New Braunfels, Texas 😉 Sauerkraut & blackeyed peas are ALWAYS served on New Years Day for us, as well! Happy New Year!
