Kreplach and regions, etc. #general

Well my maternal grandmother lived with us and Zaslav was her original
home town. After she married she moved to Proskurov. I have fond
memories of her kreplach which she would make once in a while. Since
my dad owned a kosher meat market we had many meat meals. If my
mother had enough left over brisket then that would be grinded for the
filling for the kreplach. I've never associated kreplach with
specific regions, rather it was just one of those Jewish foods that
were a "take-off" of the gentile treif versions. In that part of
Russia (now Ukraine) they have vereniki, while we had kreplach and
verenekas (with blueberry filling).
