Sweet Potato Spelt Perogies

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on February 26, 2009

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.


Erin February 26, 2009 at 9:31 pm

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!


Ashleyy February 26, 2009 at 9:52 pm

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

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

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! :)


Marianne February 28, 2009 at 9:12 pm

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