RIP member pierogi


Recommended Posts

We lost long time member Roberta @Pierogi Wednesday night to complications from Covid-19. She battled RA and the associated strong drug complications. Despite the disabling effects she continued to cook, enjoy Monet and Chihuly every day, and cheer on her Dodgers with her precious pups. She was a  brilliant and kind science geek who got a kick out of writing research guidelines and with strong opinions about the sad ways of mankind. The New Yorker yesterday re-posted a humor piece on Monet's journal as he was painting his famous wheat stalks and I'd typed an email to forward it before I realized it was not possible. 

Here is the link to her eG food blog.   https://forums.egullet.org/topic/137499-eg-foodblog-pierogi-2011-rollin-the-bon-temps-on-the-left-co/

I am about halfway through Pierogi's foodblog and remembering just how funny and energetic she was despite the RA that plagued her even then. Now I want to make comments on the blog, or at least post "reactions" (which the software didn't allow back then) and of course either would be useless. Thank you, Heidi, for posting the link. As I look back through the blog, I keep seeing cookbooks we have / had in common, and inspiring posts. I don't see making pierogies any time soon, but the next time I consider it I'll remember her tutorial. Or her tutorial on short ribs. Or her tutorial on the treatment for Polish sauerkraut, which is different from the way we usually treat it at home.

 

I've missed her voice for a long while, but always hoped we'd be seeing her back. I'm sorry we won't.

 

Rest in Peace, Roberta. Thanks for the laughs.

When I saw this on FB last night, I was just devastated.  She was so funny and kind and fierce.  We shared so much - food, Monet, Chihuly, animals.  She never did convince me to love baseball, though!  I will miss her so much and am planning to settle in later tonight and re-read her food blog.

She could write.   And argue.   And cook.

 

The world is a poorer place without her.

 

 

RIP

I think there are political figures she would and may throttle from the grave  ;) Multi-dimensional world?

We'd interact on facebook after she left eG. Gentle person. Loved her dogs and her Dodgers.

 

And how much does it blow she didn't get to see the Dodgers win?  Fng covid!
