    I love Pelmeni, a Russian dish. We are talking ground meat inside of pasta, not unlike Ravioli - but more meat and different spices. <br><br>It is cooked, and you eat it swimming in its own delicious broth. Often some sour cream is added, and vinegar too.<br><br>It is a lot of work to make it, and my wife does not have the time for it very often. But when she does, it ab-so-lute-ly my favorite.

    Pelmeni sounds delicious.<br><img src="http://img204.imageshack.us/img204/8982/800pxpelmei.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>What a coincidence, we really like potato and cheese perogies. Cooked with pan seared sausage and vegetables. It's my wife's favorite.

    I have tried both meat and potato/cheese perogies thousands of times, it's like a national dish here, should be in the flag symbol:) Thinks I'll order me some for dinner as it's as crappy as it gets outside.

    If it is a cold wintery rain i like beef stew over mashed potatoes with a side of biscuits. If it is a cooling summer rain a country fried steak sandwich with lettuce , tomato and mayo with a little salt and pepper and a side of onion rings.

    Have been in Budapest for the 2000/2001 new year's party, liked the town a lot!<br><br>I also have been to Colorado Springs, spent a few days in a hotel called the Broadmoor, expensive but very nice. Those were the days of the dotcom hype, lots of money to burn.

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>I was born in Veszprém, but have been stranded in New Jersey, Maine, and Colorado for the past twenty years. It is a bit funny, knowing that you were celebrating New Year's Eve in my home country, while I was drinking naught but Mountain Dew, watching Heavy Metal (see the website, if you are not familiar with the titular film <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heavy_Metal_(film" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heavy_Metal_(film</a>). It's late here, so I'll end with a comment about the Broadmoor. My wife and I have stayed ther, after my company sent me a large check, and--as you said--we paid quite a sum for our stay; however, it was most luxurious and worth the money. <br><br>Best wishes from the Wild West,<br><br>R.P.
