1. Spend some quality time with our dear Grandma
2. Learn how to make bierrocks.
My Grandma makes the best bierrocks EVER, and it was about time we learned how to do it.

The first night that we sat down to dinner I said, "Grandma, are those your cows out there?" pointing to the couple of cows I saw grazing in the pasture. "Yep!" she responded, "those are the ones that will be in the freezer this year." Oooook.
Anyway. next, we chopped up the onions. Notice Shorty's lovely pink lace apron.
While Shorty cut up and teared up over the onions, Grandma and I shredded lots of cabbage.
Really, I was helping... this was just a split second break so Shorty could snap a picture to prove I was there.
She seemed to be getting less and less enthused about the picture taking.
After we seasoned, cooked, seasoned and cooked the hamburger, onions and cabbage, we put it in a bowl in the fridge overnight. Just to let all of the cabbage and hamburger absorb all of the seasoning.
The next day we made the bread dough. Oops. No picture.
Once the dough had risen, we were ready to start cutting out squares and fill them up with the scrumptious filling.
Then you brush the tops with egg and bake them for a while.
They turned out SOOO good. We know that it's almost entirely due to our Grandma and nothing really that we did. :) But it was great fun, and today my Mom told Shorty and I that we needed to make them again to prove that we had learned how to do it. Hehe. We shall see.
