|Celebrating St. Patrick's Day|
I often see them on a menu at restaurants, especially Jewish delis, but I would never order them out. They aren't the same. My family's twist is that it's a version of cabbage rolls made with sauerkraut and no tomatoes or tomato sauce at all. It's the kind of meal like lasagna which tastes even better the next day. It is also a labor intensive recipe much like the Puerto Rican dish, sanchoco, that I will be learning how to make with my friend Lisa next Friday. My family would make halukis once a year for my dad's birthday. After his death, we rarely made it. In fact, when I do make it now, I invite my friends' over. These are the friend whom I have diligently research would like it, as they must be cabbage lovers. I can count them on my hands and it isn't either of the two people I live with. That night they get peanut butter and jelly. I do foresee that the time is right soon to have friends' over for halukis to share.
What are your family favorites that you like to eat or make when you are all together?
