Lot of interrogative post titles these days, eh? Not sure what's up with that.
So here's this box of something I paid money for.
"Spinach & Feta Cheese Pierogies" actually sounded like something I'd order in a restaurant, believe it or not, and residing as it did in the freezer section of the local Bi-Lo, the price was right. Right around two dollars or so -- or about a fifth the cost of your standard restaurant entrée -- and as such more or less irresistible to yours truly.
I know what you're thinking, especially if you're my wife: Toxic Preservatives Central. Surely this stuff's constructed of questionable byproducts and hydrogenated asbestos, right?
Not exactly. I did browse the side panel, and confirmed that there's not much to these Pierogies besides what it says on the front -- spinach, cheese, potatoes and pasta. Enriched flour is the only evil.
Still, though... can you trust the purity of a product manufactured by "Cheemo," of all things?
I ate it; don't get me wrong. It's just hard not to have reservations about food named after cancer treatment.
POSTSCRIPT: It says on the box that they "pan-fry" in only 3-5 minutes, but they don't really specify a heat setting. Mine ended up kind of just singed on the shell and a little underdone in the center, so I'd recommend starting on "MED" and going from there.
If, you know, you're actually going to eat this.
