Good Shabbos! Parshas Shoftim, and menu

Parsha narration (out of order, with LOTS of complaining because Elisheva was in the room, but nicely worded and clear once she actually started talking).  Clockwise from top left:  Jewish King in chariot with Torah scrolls, Soldiers who can’t go to war, Wasting a crumpled bag, Killing a calf to atone for a murder.

So many complicated themes in this week’s parsha.  I just went with what My First Parsha Reader had to say, even though I know it misses out on a lot.  We also watched the G-dcast, parsha, of course.  Way above their heads, as usual…

THE MENU!

I’m actually doing SOME of the cooking this week.  More than I have all summer, it seems like.   Here, I’ll show you all my dishes in GREEN and Ted’s in MAROON.

Supper

  • Challah
  • Soup w/kneidlach
  • Chicken and rice (baked on sticky rice with french-fried onions on top – yummy!)
  • Corn
  • storebought Egg Rolls
  • Elisheva – chocolate chip cookies with lentils instead of chips
  • Me – marble cake (new recipe:  I googled Pareve Marble Cake and this is what came up!)

Lunch

  • Ted wanted to make cholent, but I’m shvitzing – no way!
  • BBQ Chicken salad (out of the cholent chicken)
  • Sliced meats
  • Potato Salad
  • Store-bought chickpea salad
  • Asian Broccoli salad w/crispy-fried ramen bits
  • Desserts from night

Okay, so it doesn’t look like I’m doing all that much when you break it down like that… but like I said, it’s MORE.

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
