I'm finally getting my corned beef and cabbage, and I didn't even have to cook! We're going to my sister's house for my mom's birthday dinner. Mom even made soda bread, but it looks a little suspicious to me. Either way...I get good food without cooking!

Happy Passover to my Jewish Friends and everyone else.
 
Going to my cousin's for a traditional Seder.
 
When my father was alive he made a glass Sparklett's bottle full of Cherry Vishnik.
 
I have about a cup of it left.  A Tablespoon of Daddy's Vishnick went in to this cake.  He'll be there with us tonight.
 
My addition to the Seder:
 

 

 
FLOURLESS ALMOND AND PORTO CAKE   Serves 12-15
INGREDIENTS
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups slivered almonds
4 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1 tablespoon Porto wine, optional or more to taste
1/4 cup apricot marmalade
1 tablespoon lime juice, freshly squeezed
1/4 cup sliced almonds, lightly toasted
Whipped cream, optional
TO PREPARE
Butter a round 9 to 10 inch spring-form pan, and cover the bottom of the pan with parchment paper.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Place the almonds and sugar into a food processor. Pulse until finely ground. Crack the eggs on top of the mixture. Stir in the vanilla extract and Port wine, if you will use it. Drop in the butter chunks, and process until smooth and thoroughly combined.
Pour the batter into the mold. Place on a rack in the middle of the oven and bake for 30 minutes. The top will be nicely tanned, and the cake will feel springy to the touch and a toothpick should come out clean if inserted in the cake.
Remove from the oven and let the cake cool for 10 to 15 minutes. Unmold the cake, invert onto a platter and remove the parchment paper. Invert the cake again onto another platter to have the top of the cake right side up.
In a small saucepan, mix the apricot glaze with the lime juice. Set over medium heat and simmer for a couple minute.
With a brush, spread the apricot glaze on the outer circumference, about 1 to 2 inches, on the top of the cake. Sprinkle the glazed area with the toasted sliced almonds. You may serve the cake with whipped cream on the side, or on the top of the cake.

Mar, your family absolutely amazes me with the food y'all put out! That looks amazing.
 
Tonight I'm making a bastardized version of penne alla vodka for myself. Bastardized because all the recipes all for a whole pound of pasta and a gallon of sauce and there's just me, but also because I don't have any whipping cream, so I'm winging it with evaporated milk and butter. Who knows, it might turn into a recipe if I take notes.

They were all different flavors and I had my share.  The best part was that they were beautiful.

Ann, that sounds so good! I have a free item coming from our local Shop Rite and I might just get a turkey!
Mar, Your Seder looks so good. I am not Jewish but saw Ron Ben Israel on Food Network make his aunt's matzo ball soup and it looked so good. I make home made chicken stock all of the time so this time I bought some matzo meal and was sure to skim the fat off of the stock and made my first matzo balls! I gave my boss who's Jewish but doesn't cook, containers of the stock, chicken, matzo balls and some egg noodles(her request). She shared it with her husband. They raved about it and I felt very accomplished! I am not Jewish but love ethnic and celebratory food of all kinds!

Agnes, I'm proud of you!
 
I also love ethnic foods.
 
I ate the kugel with mushrooms.  My cousin didn't salt or season it enough for me so I topped it with gravy.  I ate just one slice of brisket along with some of the horseradish.
 
Tonight's dinner.... I've already sinned.  I drove through McDonald's for a broiled chicken sandwich.  I wanted something easy.
 
I also want more knaidlach (matzoh balls) but I'll have to make some soup first.

CC:    Have a wonderful Easter
 
I took my mother and her caregiver out for the day. 
 
It was going to be a special surprise for Hilda, the caregiver because one of our stops after driving by my grandparent's house and the house they had before that one.
 
First we stopped at their favorite restaurant...  Soup Plantation.
 
Then it was the drive culminating at a weekly Farmer's Market in the city of Eaglerock.
 
I knew that there was a vendor there selling something that Hilda loves and hasn't been able to get since leaving the Philippines.
 
My gift to her...  3 gorgeous Balut.  Gorgeous to her and maybe a mamma duck.  Hilda almost cried.
 
I made her promise to not eat them in front of me. 
 
Found out that the vendor had been selling there at the Farmer's Market every Friday since 1976.  He must sell a few eggs.
 
Me?  I came home and had a ham and cheese sandwich.
 
I'm a sinner.

Jersey City has so many wonderful Filipino restaurants and markets...

My hands start to shake while minding my own business purchasing my Lumpia...and seeing Balut near the register of American Pinoy Market.

Jersey City (my birthplace) was also home to a Deli by Canter's before moving to Los Angeles and starting Canter's Deli. There's even a sandwich on the menu called Jersey City!

There's an overview of Canter's by Michael Stern (Breakfast) but no Roadfood review.
