Shabbos menu

Out for lunch for a change - nice, brave people from shul who are willing to have us all over at once!
 
So here's Supper:
 
Soup w/kneidlach (EC's cooking task - just the kneidlach) & store-bought frozen kreplach
Peach / white wine chicken
Roasted local red and golden beets (yay, farmers' market!)
Apple kugel
Israeli couscous
Green beans à la - hmm... guess I should decide
Corn!
Mix brownies (YM's cooking task)
Some kind of... cookie-thing?
 
Hmm.
Taking two tired, hungry kids to Chocolate Moose on the way home from the no-longer-called-the-BJCC:  bit of a mistake.
Gavriel melted down a bit, lying on his back on the floor tiles in the crowded store.
Not the end of the world, however.  He is very self-conscious, and saves his totally outrageous behaviour for when he's home alone with us. 
 
Maybe 6 months or so ago, he wouldn't even cry if he thought someone else was watching.  Wish he'd go back to that...
 
Before the BJCC, we did a quick run to the Lee Valley downtown, to buy:
~ Plastic plant watering spikes, as recommended by Gayla Trail of YouGrowGirl.com here. Not as deluxe as my four ceramic "plant nannies," and I was going to buy the Lee Valley plant nanny but it is smaller than the ones I have.  Also, what a ridiculous name:  "Plant Nanny."  Promises way more than just dribbling moisture into a pot of dirt.  I'd accept "Plant Butler", "Plant Personal Assistant."  I guess "Plant Wet Nurse" kind of sums it up, but doesn't really have that "ring".
~ Shoes!  Big clunky blue clogs that will hopefully be less painful to wear than Crocs, which pain drove me to stop wearing pretty much FOREVER last summer (I have made a few exceptions when I have to run outside in a hurry), after almost three years of non-stop Croc wear (even on Shabbos!)
 
Oy - one long BBQ post later, Naomi's up and I must run!!!

Ancient Auction Secret: If Chinese auctions are racist, why do Jews love them so much?

Ah, Jews, Jews, Jews, Jews.  You sure do love your Chinese auctions, don’t you? It seems that even in an era of political correctness, within certain circles, this term just will not die . And frankly, I’m mortified. I’m not Chinese, but I have family who is Chinese.  Some are Korean, as well.  I guess this makes us more ethnically diverse than many Jews, but I suspect most Jewish families are moving in this direction.  Still.  Even if we don’t know a single Chinese person, we should still stop calling it that. First of all… is it actually racist to call it a Chinese auction? I figured I’d let Chinese people decide.  But when I turned to Google to find out how Chinese people feel about Chinese auctions, what I found was mostly… nothing.  Silence.  I did find some debate (presumably among non-Chinese people) over whether it was too far in the direction of political correctness to refer to these as a “silent auction” or (as in some parts of the States) a “tricky tray.”  (Ok
