Monzo: Udon-Fed Mom

Monzo: Udon-Fed Mom
There is some debate about how to produce the best breast milk, but for Laura that discussion, at least in relation to food, comes down to a two noodle race: ramen or udon. And when the enticingly long lines of Monzo put in a creamy, uni drenched argument for udon, Ramen had no chance. I went with a more classic preparation that included some tempura fried ginger. It was all delicious. Thankfully... 

Roscoe’s with Aaron & Laurie

Roscoe's with Aaron & Laurie
Aaron and Laurie were about as gracious as hosts can be when we dropped in on them in Oahu.  We wanted to take them to something uniquely Los Angeles.  Aaron insisted on one of his favorites — Roscoe’s —  which is a Los Angeles institution born out of Harlem.  Laura thought the “sauce” (i.e. syrup) paired well with the chicken and actually pondered dessert.  We added on... 

Fighting Fires

Fighting Fires
Lil! Man here. Fighting fires… yes, I did this today and it was awesome.  I volunteered at the local fire station. In the end, the alarm never sounded.  Flames know not to start with me. Fortunately, there were plenty of cookies and a bounce house to keep me occupied. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery("#ngg-slideshow-70-5405-2").nggSlideshow( {id: 70,fx:"fade",width:600,height:450,domain:...

Daddy Days: Zoo Day

Daddy Days: Zoo Day
I went to the zoo for the first time today. Dad says he’s unsure over how he feels about all these animals so far from their native environments being forced to live in a zoo. I think what he means is that he is unsure about whether this is awesome or friggin’ awesome. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery("#ngg-slideshow-59-5328-3").nggSlideshow( {id: 59,fx:"fade",width:600,height:450,domain:... 

Purim 2013

Purim 2013
The Lil’ Man digs a good festival and Purim is one of his “go to’s.” Pony rides, petting zoos, bouncy houses and carousels? When you stop to think about it, what better way is there to celebrate yet another Jewish holiday commemorating deliverance from almost certain annihilation! jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery("#ngg-slideshow-58-5293-4").nggSlideshow(... 

Tapia Bros Pumpkin Patch

Tapia Bros Pumpkin Patch
Lil’ Man here. Today we went to the Pumpkin Patch at the Tapia Bros farm stand. Dad and I go here quite a bit to visit the animals and pick up some veggies. But (whoa!) do they have some stuff going on for Halloween! There were more animals than usual. A bouncey, which my readers know I dig. And, for some reason, this giant shoe! There is a circus animal cage train car where we had seat and... 

KI2

KI2
Week’s end, summer’s end, time for one last Shabbat at the beach. The first one being such a success, Marlo invited us for another (and she brought a bunch of box wine too, which paired nicely with our  fried chicken!). Our youngest team member is not yet ready for the inter-web, so we had to make some adjustments, but its unlikely all but the most discerning reader will notice. jQuery(document).ready(function(){... 

Daddy Days: Drum Circles, Model Airplanes, Ballet Folklorico Ollin and a Garden Concert

Daddy Days: Drum Circles, Model Airplanes, Ballet Folklorico Ollin and a Garden Concert
Lil’ Man here. Today was a Daddy Day and we had quite a lot of fun.  We woke with a drum circle.  Checked out some model airplanes.  And checked out two live shows.  Frequent readers know that these days are always pretty packed with new places and exciting events, so you really need to pay attention and do your best to keep up. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery("#ngg-slideshow-52-5089-6").nggSlideshow(... 

Shabbat SoCal Style

Shabbat SoCal Style
Why wouldn’t you want to end your week here? Maybe it is the Mossianic saga that draws us to pretty large bodies of clearly inseparable, and to be quite honest, chilly water. No matter. Our latent expectations of a miracle in the Pacific Ocean, specifically the coastline around the Palisades, is manifesting itself in a nice spot for a Shabbat dinner among old friends. And, honestly now, if you...
