So within a matter of weeks, our kids got to experience their Vietnamese culture and Mennonite culture in very special ways! A month ago, we were so lucky to get to be a part of Jill's annual verenika dinner! The best way I can describe verenika is that it's a Mennonite dish that is basically a ravioli-type dumpling with cheese inside. I know that it's incredibly time-consuming to make, so to get to enjoy them was a real treat for our family! All Mennonites seem to have "their" version of how to eat it; Jill makes hers with a sweet sauce that is to die for. It was perfectly paired with German sausage and zwiebach (Mennonite bread/roll). Yum! Thanks, Jill!
