Romanian Cooking Class

Romanian Cooking Class last night! We made Mamaglia (type of cornbread), meatball soup and cabbage rolls.
Here's the cabbage roll mixture. There's all sort of good stuff in there: ground pork, bacon (not super Kosher, I guess), rice, parsley, pepper, oil, etc). We made little balls with the meat mixture and wrapped them up in sour cabbage leaves. And, please, no comments on my hand! I know, it looks a bit freaky there...
Richard was the official photo taker last night. He was getting frustrated that the lighting was crappy. That is, until he realized that he kept sticking his finger over the flash bulb. :) That's moi in the red sweater with the shadowed head.
Meatball soup! Very yummy, even the next day. The kids even ate it!
Mamaglia and cabbage rolls. There's a certain je ne sais quoi to the cabbage rolls. There's just a hint of sour/pickle-y/spicy taste in the background. A bit of horseradish was just the ticket with this meal. Yummers!

Looks interesting. Does your mom wear the same thing everytime she goes to cooking class with you? I'm pretty sure that she wore that sweater in the other pics. ;)

LOL, good eye! I hadn't noticed about the sweater.
