A Beautiful Feast

Just a short post, highlighting this great picture.  It was sent to me by my friend Olga Cherems'ka of the Kharkiv Literature Museum,  and is of a lunch at her son's school,  at a special folk culture day, where the teachers prepared special dishes.  What's to eat?  Here's her description:
There are pancakes (mlyntsi), ham (shynka), meat "kruchenyky", baked pumpkin with dried fruit, sausages, cabbage, fish aspic (kholodets'). The bread which is decorated with patterns called loaf ("korovaj"). Square bread in the left corner - a pie with mushrooms. 
Now there's a school lunch.  Enjoy!  And don't forget,  Ukrainian friends and colleagues, and friends and colleagues in Ukraine (we know some of both) we love to see your pictures, hear your stories, and share with our blog readers.  Thanks Olga!
