Family Shabbos Food How-To: Purkey Tastries!

These are the turkey pastries we often enjoy on Shabbos.  Not particularly good for you, but they are super-fast and easy to make, and also easily delegated to a willing teenager looking for a simple, undemanding cooking task.

First, preheat the oven to 425°.  These are fast to make, so preheat right away.  Oh, and thaw a package of frozen puff pastries well in advance, preferably overnight in the fridge.  :-)

1.  Separate one square and roll it a bit flatter with a rolling pin.  You don’t have to obliterate it, but this step not only makes the puff pastry thinner, it also comes out crispier and “lighter” tasting.

2.  Grab a piece of turkey and whomp it on the diagonal puff-pastry square (aka diamond).

3.  Squeeze mustard over it in an attractive zigzag.  I used French’s Honey Mustard, but have used dijon, or even regular yellow mustard, in the past.

4.  Fold up the bottom corner of the diamond.

5.  Roll up as you would for blintzes or egg rolls.  Don’t worry if some mustard escapes.

6.  Fold the ends up and over to seal them shut.

9.  Sprinkle with the last few sesame seed dregs left in the house.

10.  Bake 15 minutes or so, until golden brown or your children rescue them from the oven.

Seriously, the whole process (except baking) can be finished in about 5 minutes, start to finish.

Serve hot Friday night or rewarm for Shabbos lunch.  They’re served with a bit of honey-mustard or regular mustard on the side (whatever your family prefers).

Yum!

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
