Yiddish Expression 1.1

When someone asks for something that you have no intentions of giving or doing you would say

  כשמישהו מבקש ממך משהו שאתה לא חולם לתת או לעשות, אתה אומר לו

"יאָ, מאָרגן נאָכן קוגל"

yo, morgn nokhn kugl

yes, tomorrow after the kugel 
(Kugel is a baked pudding or casserole, similar to a pie, most commonly made from egg noodles (Lokshen kugel) or potato. It is a traditional Ashkenazi Jewish dish, often served on Shabbos and Yom Tov)

כן, מחר אחרי הקוגל
