Other “weekly challenges”:

  We’re a Jewish family of 6 (2 parents, 4 kids) and all our meals are kosher.  Newcomers, read my MPM intro here which tells you all about how we eat, or just visit my big ol’ list of Everything We Eat.  We eat mostly non-meat, and I try to include at least one vegan meal every single week – I call it Vegan Vursday!

no, this kid is not me or anyone in my family... !This week’s theme:  “Short on inspiration, long on COLD…”  Today is only around 0, but that’s the highest temperature we’ll see at least until next Sunday.

Oy – and although I started typing this up around 10 am, I can see that it’s now 11:40, hardly even Monday anymore, and I still haven’t posted it.  Drat.  And it’s been so popular lately, I’m sure I’ll be #400 in the linkies.

Sunday:  take out whatevers: pizza & falafel & sabich at Mommy’s house

Monday (tonight):  anything easy where I don’t have to go out of the house – salmon cakes/loaf?  rice?

Tuesday (Ted late):  Chicken and potatoes and a veg on the side – tinned carrots (Naomi’s request)

Wednesday:  BREAD!  We  have to eat bread!!!  Tuna noodle casserole plus BREAD plus soup?  Too much tinned fish; I will probably change this meal…

Thursday (Ted off):  Polenta with roasted root veg assorté

Shabbos:  ???

So that’s it; I’m done!  What is your family eating this week?

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
