Piroshkies

I’m in California for an intense few days of on-site computer programming. Yesterday I saw something new-to-me, a bagel store that sold “piroshkies” in various sizes. I’d never heard of piroshki before, and as I peered at the selection I could only gather that they were some kind of bread with stuff in them. I am a big fan of breads with stuff in it, so I just looked it up: Pirozki is apparently Russian in origin, with variations in other parts of Europe and surprisingly also in Japan, where it is thought to be the inpiration for karē pan (curry bread), my FAVORITE of ALL breads-with-stuff-in-them. I’m going to have to see if I can find THAT while I’m on the west coast.
