Hello! We have a number of events this week and now will *not* be having a special.  However, you can still get sushi Thursday and for Shabbos, if you would like. We have a Sushi/Japanese Cooking Class this week!  It is Thursday night, please email me if you would like additional information. We’re going to have bamboo mats for everyone to use to roll their own sushi, we’re going to make our own sushi rice, pickle our own ginger, make our own tofu, make flower “designer” sushi as well as the “normal” sushi.  Dragon rolls, inside out rolls, squares, we’ll have a lot of fun things (and we’ll have lots of tips).  Not to mention – the non-sushi food we’re going to have – including fun Onigiri (which are rice cakes), miso soup, gyozo, teriyaki chicken, daikon and cucumber salad among other things….  If…

Friday we had to make some lunch, and no one knew what they wanted – we tried many options.  However, sometimes we need something special and fun (and preferably easy).  From our trip to the library we got a Children’s quick and easy cookbook – which has lots of recipes of things I used to eat as a child.  And I remembered fondly my brother and I making our own Cyclops when we needed an afternoon snack.  So, continuing a Markizon tradition – we did the “Cyclops” or the “Egg in a hole”. Ingredients: A teaspoon or so of Butter, Margarine or a spray of cooking spray Bread (the same number of pieces of bread as number of eggs) Egg Take a saute pan or a frying pan and put the butter, margarine or cooking spray in and heat up.  Then take the bread…

Most importantly, Yaakov is now walking!  And he’s very fast. Next week (Thursday February 24th) we will have our second of three International cuisine classes focussed on Japanese/Sushi – if anyone’s interested, I’ll give you the details and next week’s special will be Japanese. Please find our special for Shabbos below.  Please order the Shabbos Special as soon as you know, preferably by noon on Wednesday.  We’ll try to accommodate orders after that, but no guarantee. You can order during the week if you like (what, you say, we have a menu?  Yes, it’s on our website at the bottom of our front page or on the “Menu” page – www.sweetandgoodcatering.com, but we do a lot of custom orders).  If you want to order for Shabbos and want something specific – we can make the special around what you want. You can order sushi from…

Hooray!  Nava and I just got our library cards last Sunday and we celebrated by each getting lots of books.  First of all, the library made it very easy to get the library cards – the woman who helped us was very nice (even though they ran out of backpacks that Shari has – apparently we missed the window on those).  Nava got a few Winnie the Pooh books, Bob the Builder and Clever Rachel.  And I treated myself to a whole bunch of cookbooks!  Hooray!  I’ve started going through Julia Child’s Master Bakers.  She’s amazing, and now I want to make a whole bunch of recipes.  The first of which is the popover.  It’s a roll llike thing (really it seems like it is similar to the dough of a cream puff) in a muffin tin  that rises up really high.  And Martha…
