Shabbos Erev Tisha b’Av: What “R” you eating?

Here’s our food plan, for a full 3-meal Shabbos to go into the fast!  If you’re not sure what Tisha b’Av is (and also, perhaps, what Wikipedia is, because I’m sure there’s good information over there), click here for my very own FAQ.  Submit your questions here or there and I’ll be sure to get ‘em answered in time for next year!

Note:  Crossed out = done!

Shabbos Dinner (Meat)

  • Challah
  • Chicken soup w/kneidlach
  • Shake n’ Bake chipotle chicken (Ted – to bake at last minute before Shabbos)
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Corn / NO Black Bean Salad
  • Jello w/blueberries (I just type out Ted’s food plan… frankly, I think this is a terrible idea, but (postscript) I made it anyway)
  • Other hopefully chocolatey desserts

Lunch (Meat)

  • Challah
  • Turkey pastries (YM)
  • Slicey meats
  • NO!!! Cholent (ditto – terrible idea; I will seek to undermine this cholent idea in every way I can while Ted’s out at work tomorrow…)
  • Lettuce salad (yucko)
  • NO TIME!!! Potato salad
  • Pickles (he wrote this on the menu??!?)

Shalosh Seudos / Seudah Mafsekes (meal before the fast)

  • Homemade potato gnocchi w/ homegrown basil pesto
  • Hard-boiled eggs (traditional before a fast)
  • Salmon caesar salad

I still need to work on the desserts concept a bit more… we are not surviving Shabbos with only Jello-with-blueberries in sight.  I am in the mood for something fluffy and artificially-strawberry flavoured, but that happens quite often.

What are your tricks for eating ahead of time to survive a long fast???

  1. Salmon caesar salad sounds so interesting! Can you put the recipe up?

    We're doing a pretty standard shalesheudos, which for us is challah and salads, raw veggies with dips, deviled eggs, and sesame noodles. Plus fruit salad and brownies.

    Hope you get something more your speed for dessert! ;)

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
