When I was in Poland a few years ago, we did a really cool thing where we went to the local market with a woman, shopped for the day, went back to her home and she taught us to make pierogi and then we had lunch with her and her family of everything we'd made. It was a lovely day and the meal and company were so good!

I think we made 30 and it was a long process -- you and your family are awesome to make that many!
