Santa Barbara weekend

31 Aug

Here are a few snapshots from our weekend in Santa Barbara…as you can tell from the pictures we spent the weekend in our sweatpants. So good.

My favorite activity was putting pennies on the train track and coming back the next morning to flattened pennies! I haven’t done that since I was a kid.

LESSON 1 : LEARN HOW TO COOK

Cooking Teacher: Aunt Paule (aka AP)

Location: Her home in Santa Barbara

Dish : Kugel ( which is a baked Jewish pudding or casserole, similar to a pie, most commonly made from egg noodles or potatoes, though at times made of zucchini, apples, spinach, broccoli, cranberry, or sweet potato. It is usually served as a side dish on Shabbat and Yom Tov.

Learning my dear Aunt Paule’s famous Kugel dish was not only an informative cooking lesson (tip of the day, always use FULL FAT ingredients when making this dish) but also a delightful way to spend the afternoon. We laughed, shared stories and ate a delicious but very fattening dish together (with no shame ).

Cooking can be fun! Especially when you are learning from the people you love.
