The Menu

There are several one rquirements at a Polish wedding. High on the list is eating. Well that’s not all. You also have to dance, drink, talk, laugh, sing. But eating helps all the other things go smoothly.

Lunch (3:00 p.m.)
Chicken broth with noodles (Yes, chicken noodle soup)
Choice of main dish:
Pork
Beef rolls (stuff with pickles, peppers, and other nonsense)
Chicken breasts
Stuffed mushrooms (for vegetarians)
Fried cabbage
Salad
First Supper (7:30 p.m.)
Kluski
Turkey breast rolls
Spring salad
Second Supper (10:00 p.m.)
Something – but for the life of me, I can’t remember what.
Third Supper (12:30 a.m.)
Red Borshch
Croquettes
Fourth Supper (3:00 a.m.)

For example, the reason an average size guy like me can do 15-20 shots during a wedding is that you’re eating and dancing all the time.Well, eating all the time. Except when you’re dancing.
