May not look like much…

cones 2010-09-01 001… but it just may be a kid-friendly way of serving TUNA, SALMON, CREAM CHEESE and EGG SALAD at GZ’s upsherin (What’s an upsherin???  FAQ here!).

(and yes, you’re invited!)

Quick, easy, fun, tidy!  I’ve done this before for my kids but it never occurred to me to do it en masse.  I would make them look a bit nicer than this one, of course.  OR… bowls of salads and people can mix n’ match.

Okay, either way, I know Elisheva will tell me it’s hopelessly tacky.  But do you know how MUCH the places charge for party “platters” with nothing but blobs of these relatively inexpensive substances???  Even with cholov Yisrael cream cheese, DIY could save us dozens and dozens of dollars, if not hundreds.

The only question would be, for adults who would normally wash if I were serving party sandwiches, should they wash and bentsch before and after “party cones?”  If it was only one or two cones, I would say NO, it’s not necessary.  But if they were going to really dig in and make a meal of it, they should probably wash on a piece of pita or something, just to remove all safek.

Not that I’m a competent (or incompetent) poseik halacha, of course… as always, CYLHA!

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
