Shabbos Desserts!

Well, I ought to be working on the whole menu, but so far, I haven’t gotten past the sweet stuff.  Typical.

Nevertheless, “al hamar v’ha matok” – for the bitter and the sweet, a line from a Naomi Shemer song.  In this case, the savoury and the sweet – nothing bitter going on here!  So – onward!  “Al hamatok, v’ha ta-im!”

Ted’s still in his Kosher by Design phase – since I had my contest, he has had every one of these books out from the library.

Crossing stuff out as I make it…

Supper!

  • Challah
  • “Boughten” Egg rolls (we found the word boughten in a little house book and love it!)
  • Kosher by Design Turkey Sliders – served a la meatballs w/some kind of sauce
  • Garlic wedged roasted “hasselback” potatoes, from a Kosher by Design book
  • Miso-dressing green beans (improvised with hatcho miso, white vinegar (I’m out of rice vinegar), sesame oil and mirin)
  • Corn (frozen corn, steamed; it wouldn’t be Shabbos without it!)
  • Desserts

Lunch!  Not sure what Ted has planned.

  • Challah
  • Cholent?
  • Store-bought Slicey meats
  • Purkey Tastries – aka puff pastry with slices of turkey pastrami inside!
  • Carrot salad – EASY!  Carrot “coins” steamed, tossed with olive oil, cumin, curry powder, salt, craisins.  I have also made this without the curry powder – just cumin & garlic.  Try lots of fresh, local garlic, for a powerful kick!
  • Desserts

Desserts! (aka the only thing I have done so far today besides challah)

  • NEW Marble Chiffon Cake – I wanted swirly cake, but couldn’t find my tube pan, so I made it in 3 loaf pans instead.
  • OLD FAVE Almond Biscotti aka Mandelbroit – never-fail, always-yum

Good Shabbos!

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
