Solyanka is a thick, piquant soup that combines components from shchi (cabbage, smetana) and rassolnik (pickle water and cucumbers), spices such as olives, capers, tomatoes, lemons, lemon juice, kvass, salted and pickled mushrooms make up a considerably strong sour-salty base of the soup. Solyanka is much thicker than other soups, about 1/3 less liquid ratio. Three types are distinguished: meat, fish, and simple solyanka. The first two are cooked on strong meat or fish broths, and the last on mushroom or vegetable broth. All the broths are mixed with cucumber pickle water.
Pelmeni are a traditional Eastern European (mainly Russian) dish usually made with minced meat filling, wrapped in thin dough (made out of flour and eggs, sometimes with milk or water added). For filling, pork, lamb, beef, or any other kind of meat can be used; mixing several kinds is popular. The traditional Ural recipe requires the filling be made with 45% of beef, 35% of lamb, and 20% of pork. Traditionally, various spices, such as pepper, onions, and garlic, are mixed into the filling.
Beef Stroganoff or beef Stroganov (in Russian: Бефстроганов Befstróganov) is a Russian dish of sautéed pieces of beef served in a sauce with smetana (sour cream). From its origins in mid-19th-century Russia, it has become popular around the world, with considerable variation from the original recipe.
Non Alcoholic Drink:
Kvass is an ancient and still widely popular bread-based drink. The basic method of preparing kvass includes water, flour and liquid malt; these ingredients are used to make a dough that is subjected to fermentation. This results in a beverage with very low alcohol content. Commercial kvas is often around 0.5% alcohol. The fermented liquid, referred to as "zator," is diluted with water and mixed with yeast, sugar, and aromatic additives. This final mixture is allowed to brew for several days. Flavor additives may include fruit and berry juices (cherry, raspberry, lemon, etc.), as well as ginger and mint.
Seven years before moving to Japan with her Phantom Carnivale Clothing Designer Father Lance, Cosette's mother Natasha Top designer of Russian Dreams became seriously ill with rapidly spreading stage four cancer and died in a Calais Hospital two weeks before Cosette's fifth birthday.
In accordance to her last wishes, Natasha was cremated instead of having a full body funeral which set her side of the family against Lance and waged a lengthy court battle for the custody of Cosette ending in Natasha's parents cutting Cosette out of their lives completely denying her very existence from the time she was five until she was accepted into Starlight Academy's Middle School Division.
When Cosette was getting ready to move into Starlight Academy's Dorms, she was served with Court Papers ordering her to cease and desist her idol activities,move back into her father's two bedroom condo and attend a regular Private School until a Family Court Judge in St.Petersburg Russia heard her maternal grandparents case to have her removed from Lance's custody and placed in their custody in Russia in a year's time followed by another Custody case set for the following year in Calais France.
Until then no Aikatsu,no first day at Starlight Academy,no learning about Idol Activites no nothing,just a regular private school girl going to a regular private day school banned from owning any new Aikatsu cards.
The basis of the argument for Cosette's custody stemmed from their 'concerns' that their dear 'Cosette's' education was being neglected and that she was being 'groomed' for a lifetime of Prostitution at an unsavory school in an unsavory part of Japan.
After a lengthy investigation into Cosette's maternal grandparents complaint about the school being unsavory and teaching unsavory materials, the Family Court Judge in St.Petersburg Russia decided to dismiss the custody battle and Cosette but the Family Court Judge in Calais France decided to investigate further ordering the Cease and desist order to remain in effect until the end of the year until then, Cosette had to remain in the Private School she was enrolled in and remain with her father in his condo until the judge delivered her ruling the following January.
The following month however, a new judge took over the case who was famiiar with both Starlight Academy and Dream Academy and decided that Cosette was in no danger and ended the cease and desist order and the next day Cosette was finally able to have her first day at Starlight Academy blowing her competitors out of the water with her flawless Traditional Russian Lullabye sung in flawless Russian performed in traditional Russian Clothes made by her late mother shortly before she became sick and passed away.
Although Cosette was given a 'Fail' by seven of eight judges because of her choice of Song,Language,Dance and Clothing, Orihime ultimately overruled the decision stating that it was 'unfair to fail a potential new student just because you don't understand the language the song was sung in or their choice of dress. Song lyrics were handed out that had the Russian Lyrics on the left and the english translation on the right, all you had to do was follow the lyrics that were up on the monitors with the lyircs on the sheet provided and you wouldn't have any problems understanding the song.'
Biggest Annoyance: Having girls like Sumire run up to her and blurt out 'I can hardly wait to meet the top designer of Russian Dreams! I bet she and her daughter are beautiful!' and having to take a sharp pin and pop their bubble saying 'Ahh ma petite cherie! You are so young and inexperienced in matters such as death. Ze Top Designer of Russian Dreams is no longer amongst ze living. Ma cher you are looking at Natasha's daughter. My mama passed away seven years ago from rapidly spreading cancer in Calais. You will never get to meet her, if I were you I'd try for the top designer of Phantom Carnavale instead, I can easily hook you up if you are interested. But he is rather difficult to get in touch with.'
Biggest Pet Peeve: Having to constantly repeat herself over and over again until Sumire finally gets it in her head that Russian Dreams's Top Designer and Owner was no longer alive.
Is Known To Say: I REFUSE to repeat myself ma cherie! I told you once and that is it! Mama is not alive, Russian Dreams folded after she passed! Get it in your thick skulls that once the owner operator and founder passes away that is it! She had no want or desire to see her company be taken over by idiots who have neither the burning passion or desire to continue in her footsteps and keep her visions alive. Now bug off and go do your homework instead of waiting until tomorrow!
Most Prized Posessions: The legendary Christine Daae Coord her father made, finished and turned into Aikatsu Cards that he placed in a Phantom Carnival Binder along with all his other rare designs the day before her twelfth birthday and the Anastasia Romanov Coord her mother had made,finished and turned into Aikatsu Cards before her death that were put into a Russian Dreams Aikatsu Card Binder that was chock full of her mother's designs in card form all of which were never seen only rumored about and are extraordinarily rare.
