Rock-Bottom Shabbos Food

erev Shabbos 050Our theme this Shabbos is “making do with what we have because there are no groceries to be had.”   Luckily, we always have a TON of food on hand…

Supper:

  • Challah – small-batch Blender Challah (not as exciting as it sounds)
  • Soup
  • Chicken (Shake n Bake)
  • erev Shabbos 054Homemade Farfel (second half of last week’s batch)
  • Corn
  • Desserts

erev Shabbos 056Lunch:  (dairy)

  • Jar gefilte fish.
  • Bowtie cottage-cheese kugel
  • Tabouli (will add tomatoes right before the seudah)
  • Desserts

erev Shabbos 052Desserts:

  • Fresh Ontario Farmers-Market Strawberry Chiffon Pie (what a waste of healthy nice strawberries, but yum…!
  • Banana cake
  • Ted-made Strawberry/Rhubarb Crumble
  • Ruined Marshmallow Dessert (that’s what it’s called – RMD for short – after the time it turned out all ruined, for whatever reason I no erev Shabbos 055longer remember)

Hey, look what I got for $10 at Value Village this week!  Just the mixer and stand – no beaters.  Which is perfect because I already HAVE three sets of beaters – meat, pareve and dairy.  $10 (actually $9.99) might not sound like such a bargain, since they start at $15 new, but I have learned my lesson from my last cheap mixer, which, astonishingly, goes too FAST and sprays everything everywhere.  The motor part comes off the base easily so you can use it hand-held, and I may return the base to Value Village.  We tried it out a bit today, though, and it’s actually kind of handy…

Are Jews an "underrepresented community" in children’s publishing?

I applied for a writing award yesterday. I'm not going to get it, but that's not what I wanted to share with you. Here's what I wanted to share. This box:   I stared at this box for a long, long time. And then I decided not to check it. Even though I believe people like me truly are underrepresented, we probably wouldn’t fit the definition in other people's minds. Why? Well, because we're European. Because we are white. Because as everybody knows, Jews control the media. (do we???) If anything, some people say, Jews are over -represented in publishing. And yet. Some definitions are careful not to include people like me. Like this random definition from the State of California which defines underrepresented for some very specific business purposes as: "an individual who self-identifies as Black, African American, Hispanic, Latino, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, Native Hawaiian, or Alaska Native, or who self-identi
