Sweet Potato Spelt Perogies


Good evening!

We had a busy day today…

  • Dropped Sketchie at the vet/picked him up ($155!!!!!!! For a urine analysis!)
  • Bought cat food
  • Organized/paid bills [phone, internet, water heater rental etc], changed phone plan
  • Office stuff: Paid property taxes, faxed in warranty for car, discontinued tenant insurance
  • Took car in to have transmission checked
  • Transferred insurance companies on my engagement ring
  • Wal-Mart (see photos below)
  • Glo Bakery business stuff [research, phone calls, applications, etc]
  • COOKING, clean up etc
  • Blogging
  • Post office
  • etc!

I still have to organize all of my files! When we moved in this house my mini filing cabinet BROKE and I haven’t gotten a new one until today…I got this one below at Wal Mart for 10 bucks:


I need to move the two on the right, into the new one on the left…plus add in tons of bills and files that I haven’t been filing since we moved in end of November!

Our Wal-Mart Shopping trip:


Eric stuff on the left:

  • garbage bags (he is our sanitary engineer, lol)
  • 1% cow’s milk
  • Raisin Bran
  • margarine
  • Dad’s Oatmeal Cookies

My stuff on the right:

  • Icing color paste (!!!)
  • Piping bags (50)
  • 3 sweet potatoes
  • 3 bunches of bananas on sale for 30 cents/lb.
  • Organic carrots
  • organic garlic puree (the whole jar only $1.29- it was cheaper than buying whole garlic cloves)
  • Nature’s Path Spelt Cereal
  • Bulk honey
  • Europe’s Best Frozen Pineapple (sooo sweet!) for smoothies


i can’t wait to decorate and mix all kinds of wonderful icing colours!


Sweet Potato Spelt Perogies

I was in wal-mart tonight and passed the perogies in the frozen section, and this idea for dinner just came into my mind! It turned out pretty darn fantastic if you ask us!



  • Spelt dough
  • Sweet potatoes, boiled and mashed
  • paprika

Directions: Boil sweet potatoes until tender, drain, and mash. Sprinkle with lots of paprika. Set aside. Cook other veggies if desired. In retrospect, I would have added some mixed veggies to the sweet potatoes and mixed together. Roll out spelt dough as if you were making a tortilla, Cut into the size you want to make perogie. Spoon 1-2 tbsp. of sweet potato puree on each piece of dough. Fold together as shown and pinch at sides to secure. Cook in a skillet for 4-5 mins. each side on medium heat until firm to touch.












We dined with another couple in the window! tee hee


Beautiful house warming gift from my brother and sis in law:


Dessert was a small bowl of spelt cereal + Almond breeze and 3/4 cup of unsweetened apple sauce with a handful of raisins.

Tonight I was really craving sugar– specifically my pumpkin bread!!!! I still haven’t had any yet since I made it and I was watched Eric eat it everyday. oye. Day 6 complete….but damn I want some pumpkin bread!!!!!

See you tomorrow for the next contest announcement!

Off to file…


Which celebrity said this quote:

““I have a chocolate drawer in my desk where I keep treats at all times,” she admits. “As long as I can have one or two pieces, I’m fine. But my biggest food vice is bacon. And no, I don’t have a bacon drawer. In fact, I don’t keep bacon in my house—that would be way too tempting.”

Your perogies are so cute! I want some…! And wow, I didn’t realize Walmart carried all that great stuff! I underestimated the power of Walmart, haha.


10 Erin February 26, 2009

I am impressed with your dinner idea!
Strangely I have been thinking about perogies lately, haha, which is not a common craving! I may have to give it a try, you make it look so easy!


11 Ashleyy February 26, 2009

YYaaahh!!!! I loved your idea with the homemade almond butter, that I went out and bought the SAME food processor as you and made my OWN BUTTER!! It actually worked. I went to Bulk Barn and bought some type or flavoured almonds and it worked. I posted on my blog to show you!..

good call with the perogies. man 3 sweet potatoes or yams will not last very long in our kitchen, hehe


13 kaneil February 26, 2009

One more day and the pumpkin bread’s yours! haha you’re doing great! I’ve never had perogies before – I’ll have to try that. I’m dying to make your tortillas – definitely cheaper than the ezekiel tortillas I normally buy.

Kaneil, balanceisbest


14 Leah February 27, 2009

I love sweet potatoes (as you saw!). They are so great.. and I love perogies! Great combo!

Can’t wait for the next contest!

perogies = my childhood.
i am 100% ukrainian!

one secret about the dough-
roll it out and then take a cup and make a circle cut
-then place the filling in the middle and just pinch the corners
– that is how you get the half-moon beauties!!!
i can’t wait to try these— peas would be a perfect addition.

happy weekend

Wow, what an idea for pierogies! And with the mother of all awesome fillings! On the to-try list.

Happy Friday! :)

Sweet potato sounds like an interesting filling for perogies. I wonder how it would work with my grandparents’ perogie dough recipe.
