Savoring the Holidays

Just back from a holiday visit to my in-laws in San Diego, so I've been away from the computer, but not the stove.

I have a wonderful oven-poached pear recipe to share that is based on one I had in Madrid and a savory (i.e., not sweet) matzoh brei side dish I developed for a friend's seder. Look for both soon.

If you are going to San Diego sometime soon, I have two "tourist" recommendations. Check out the adorable baby harbor seals at La Jolla Cove (they have commandered the area known as the children's pool, which is actually a beach). Also consider devoting an afternoon to the aircraft carrier Midway which has been turned into a new museum on San Diego's downtown waterfront. Lots of planes, displays and history with a free audio tour and docents to explain it all. Admission is a bit pricey, but worth it. Great gift shop. Snack bar has tasty views and so-so food.
