Post Pesach Shabbos Food!

Challah!  Making challah again – at last!

Shabbos Dinner:

  • Challah (shh… top-secret shlissel challahs once again!)
  • Soup
  • Spring rolls (if Ted gets out to Toronto Kosher, cuz I’m not going)
  • Turkey mballs w/sweet and sour sauce  w/ pineapples
  • Side – israeli couscous?  rice?
  • Desserts: 
    • brownie (for GZ!) – from scratch, for a change
    • pareve ice cream (for EC, who’s going away)

Shabbos Lunch:

  • Challah
  • Salmon
  • Blintzes
  • Pareve Cholent
  • Dairy dessert???  Chocolate-chip cookies – with butter!

Oy, vey!  Just clicked the link for my old-faithful scratch brownies and – eek! – it’s dead.  The site has apparently been taken down over the last couple of years since I made brownies the old-fashioned way.

If this happens to you, don’t panic!  Instead, check the wayback machine; the Internet Archive site, where you can often find an archived copy of the website you need!  That’s how I found a link to the original recipe I used.  I love how the site allows you to search multiple archives, sorted by date.  It’s fun seeing how various sites have evolved over the years.

Of course, just to be on the safe side, if you DO find a copy, you should save it to your hard drive.  don’t rely on the archive always being there when you need it.  I have been very lucky so far, but you just never know.

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
