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:...

Oahu: 10 Fun Things We Did

Oahu: 10 Fun Things We Did
Our friend Dave was generous enough to put us up in his place in Oahu and our friends Aaron and Laurie were generous enough to put up with us.  We had a lot of beach time, though not as much ocean time as we had expected on account of Leon telling us, very often, and after frequent inquires of Dad along the lines of “will you teach me how to swim?”, that in fact he was “not ready... 

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-59-5328-13").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-58-5293-14").nggSlideshow(... 

Marc’s Very Special Christmas

Marc's Very Special Christmas
We don’t observe Christmas, but Marc made it tough this year not to, at least, celebrate it — what with Christmas Eve dinner at the Hotel Del Coronado followed by a deliciously catered Christmas Day lunch at Judy and Janet’s.  Read More →

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(){...
