The wife and I finished unloading the dowry into the castle, and celebrated with dinner out. Yesterday, I noticed an interesting possibility – the unpretentious Babushka Pierogi European restaurant in Pineville North Carolina.
The King had Hungarian goulash with mashed potatoes and bread, and the Countess had a Polish assortment with kielbasa, stuffed cabbage, pierogos, and braised cabbage (with sharing) – washed down with refreshing cold kompot, a fruity drink made from cooking fruits and adding sugar. It was a very pleasant meal, unlike anything since I arrived here 3 1/2 years ago. Charlotte is more than just a place to eat fried chicken, grits and tater tots. The changes here are not just “Yankees” moving in, but people from Asia, Eastern Europe, Central America, Africa, and elsewhere.
After the meal, we indulged in these tasty treats
