Shabbos Food!

Ted’s working today, so he did a LOT of the work last night.  I just can’t seem to get stuff done while there are kids around, which is a terrible thing because there are always kids around.  I’ll stick an asterisk next to everything that’s left for me to do!

Dinner (Meat)

  • Soup
  • * Challah
  • Onion Chickens (Ted seasoned the chicken overnight in mayonnaise)
  • * Easy oven egg rolls (Ted made the filling last night)
  • * Homemade farfel w/broccoli (if I can I did! figure out how to make homemade farfel!)
  • * Corn
  • Desserts

Lunch (Dairy)

  • * Challah
  • Blintz loaf (Ted made this last night when I wasn’t looking, I guess)
  • Honey mustard salmon (Ted made this last night)
  • * Israeli salad (tomato-cucumber – we are buying tomatoes again because they have a Canada sticker, though I suspect they are shipped here from greenhouses in BC, and between heating the greenhouse and shipping, are probably not much better than tomatoes from Spain or Peru or wherever) – ELISHEVA WILL MAKE IT ON SHABBOS – with luck!
  • Desserts

Desserts

  • * Easy Blueberry Puff Pastries
  • * one more dessert???  Maybe ginger cookies from a mix
  • * Prince William’s Royal Wedding Chocolate Biscuit Cake (made with Social Tea biscuits, which I believe are Not Exactly Right) – Ted made the cake but I have to ganache it today.

(the last was Ted’s special request – this from a man who, between the Scottish and Irish blood, has probably been under the boot of English royalty for close to a millennium)

Plus a lot of dish-washing…. plus, something smells absolutely FOUL in the fridge.  I really, really don’t want to know what it is!  But I suspect the grown-up thing is to root it out and get rid of it!

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
