To make the pirozhki, I used the recipe here. I halved it (though I realized I did the math wrong for the soy milk, and so I added more to the dough right before I was supposed to leave it alone to rise... without heating the soy milk up first, so I think the cold may have killed the yeast, whoops), and used mashed potatoes and the stroganoff leftovers as the filling, leaving out the optional red pepper flakes.
So, the dough didn't rise much. I was able to form three little circles and two bigger ones. I really should have rolled the dough flatter. Ah well, next time. I was able to fit about half of the filling in, though pinching the pirozhki closed was difficult and the filling was still poking out a bit.
|This one turned out the best. :)|
While the pirozhki baked, I snacked on the remaining filling, which turned out to be a rather delicious combo. Add in some veggies, and it would be a nice variation on my mashed potato bowl. And then I sampled the pirozhki itself once it was done; it was good, all things considered! For my first time making it, I'll look at it as a success, but here's hoping the next time turns out better.

In other news, guess what got delivered today!
That's right: The Vegan MoFo mug from Jeanette Zeis Ceramics that I won in the giveaway! It's so cute & cool; I love it! I'm debating whether I want the first drink I have from it to be hot chocolate or tea tonight... I'm leaning toward hot chocolate.
Leela and Buttons enjoyed sniffing everything over.
And they were especially fond of the twine that had been tied around the bubble-wrapped mug.
At one point, they were even playing with it at the same time.
Oh, and silly Buttons made it onto the Vegan MoFo Sunday Round Up; check it out!
