    RIP Matt Reinhardt

    I was so surprised to hear the news about Matthew’s passing. Matt was a Math teacher at Fort Hamilton high school with a great sense of humor. I knew him for a few years and when I close my eyes I can still him laughing.  He was a kind person.

    He died from a seizure.  

    Casey Funeral Home in Staten Island.

    The funeral is on Monday  at noon in Blessed Sacrament R.C. Church,

    Prayers for Matt’s family and girlfriend. He left us too soon.

    They have a shop on the Coney Island Boardwalk – fish and chips there is like $12.00     They have fried shrimp and fries. And they have fried anchovies that you dip into a mayonnaise dipping sauce. I never tried those though.

    Couples Cooking Class in Brooklyn – Indian Food

    If you like vegetable pakora, you will love this class!


    Lee and I took an cooking class together. Lee told me for years that he wanted to learn how to cook authentic Indian food. We have tried to cook Indian food, but it didn’t come out quite right because we didn’t have the spices right. I wanted to learn something new so I browsed Course Horse and found Mukti’s Kitchen. Vegetarian Indian Food Cooking was the class we took. Although we are not vegetarians, we enjoy a lot of the vegetable dishes.

    Mukti’s opens up the kitchen in her Kensington home to teach people how to make authentic Indian food. Her home is comfortable and you feel like you are Mukti’s cousin because she is so welcoming. She is a fantastic teacher as she goes through each step, involves you and then summarizes her step. She gives our all of the recipes that you make in the class and explains where to purchase the spices from.

    When Mukti begins the class, she introduces all of the spices.



    Mukti gets everyone involved in preparing and cooking the food.


    We made four dishes in our class with Mukti’s assistance.



    At the end of the class, you get to eat! We had a great time talkinmg to Mukti and learning about her family, culture and her future trip which she is taking some of her students to Indian.



    If you love Indian food, go take Mukti’s class. If you decide to take Mukti’s class, wear socks. Her home is very clean and she has guests take off their shoes. I had flip flips on so I was barefoot. I wished I had a pair of sports socks. Also if you like to drink wine, bring some along. She serves water and tea, but some wine would have gone well with the delicious food :)
