Menu Plan Monday – 19 Iyar, 5771

Other “weekly challenges” I have not been doing very regularly with since Pesach:

Welcome!  We’re a homeschooling Jewish family of 6 (2 parents, 4 kids) and all our meals are kosher.  Read my MPM intro here or just visit my big ol’ list of Everything We Eat.  We eat mostly vegetarian, with one vegan meal every single week – on Vegan Vursday, of course!

It’s Victoria Day, which we don’t normally observe because Ted works holidays, but this time around, Ted’s taken Naomi to Ottawa to see his parents.  They’re away on Monday and Tuesday, so I’m home alone with Gavriel Zev for probably the first time in his life.

Sunday (last night):  BBQ at Mommy’s (aka Bubby’s)

Monday (tonight):  Homemade Pizza w/ part-semolina dough

Tuesday:  Hmm… something with meat?  Dunno!!!  Wings?

Wednesday: Hmm… something with fish, perhaps?  Not salmon; we eat enough salmon.  Cornmeal-crusted SOMETHING.  This will need a grocery store run, because we don’t have anything in the house.  With something wonderful on the side.

Thursday, as copied and pasted from Lionden Landing (which is fair because she swiped my Awesome Kosher Family Food graphic, with its City Hall, CN Tower and all!):  Tofu Stirfry, rice and keem. 

What is keem?  I  was wondering for months what “keem” was because it kept showing up on her menus.  She clarified my question here that it is “dried seaweed similar to Sushi wrappings but cooked more so it is crispier.”  Wikipedia, which spells it “gim,” says it’s identical to sushi nori or, in English, “laver,” a pun that did not go over well with my family when we were learning about the Mishkan (tabernacle) wash basin, which is also often translated as “laver.”  Trust me – it was a terrible pun.

Friday / Shabbos:  TBA!

  1. Mimicry is the best form of flattery?

    Our vegan vursday is my default for when I can't think.

    And I did comment on keeping it crisp.

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
