You've got a chance to give your family a taste of culture this weekend.
This Saturday, October 12th, Philbrook Museum will host the Global Table Experience. It will feature a local blogger, Sasha Martin, who started blogging about food around the world (Global Table Adventure) when her daughter was born.
Martin will be there in addition to lots of different foods, global arts & crafts projects and international music.
Sasha Martin has a memoir coming out in 2014, The Spiced Life, published by National Geographic.
Betty Casey of Tulsa Kids Magazine picked one of Martin's recipes to feature in Good Morning Oklahoma's Time for Tulsa Kids segment.
(Ukrainian Pasta Bake)
6 cups cooked egg noodles (about 1/2 lb uncooked egg noodles)
8 slices bacon
2 cups cottage cheese
1/4 cup half and half
salt & pepper to taste
Cook the noodles al dente. Drain and run cool water over them. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix together the cottage cheese, half and half, eggs and seasoning. Use plenty of pepper. Stir in the cooked pasta. Set aside.
Cook the bacon, then chop when cool enough to handle. Add the bacon and any accumulated bacon fat into the pasta mixture. Pour into a buttered or oiled 3-quart casserole.
Stir together oil with some breadcrumbs until the mixture resembles wet sand. Sprinkle on top of the casserole and bake for 30-35 minutes, until golden brown and bubbling.
