Cooking Update II

Electric boogaloo?


Big Pot o' Soup on stove, just getting *warm*. This is chicken soup, but I put a turkey bottom in, too. Just because. And a pound of carrots. And onions and parsnips and turnips and celery and dill and parsley. And bayleaves for the magic. Simmer, simmer.

Bicolored gefilte fish loaf - one package frozen salmon gefilte fish. One package frozen regular gefilte fish. One bunch parsley. Thaw the fish. Chop the parsley. Spread the salmon on the bottom of the pan. Cover with parsley. Put the regular fish on top. Cover with foil. Bake.

(Or, you can first think you'll do a jelly roll thing, and spread the salmon on a sheet of foil, and realize you don't have enough, so put it in the new loaf pan you bought, and find the loaf pan too big, and then find the smaller ones you have left over unused from another occasion and use them. Proceed as above, stopping to chop the parsley in the middle instead of ahead of time.)

Put in oven with pot roast. Hope it's done in an hour. :)


You're so far ahead of me. I haven't even really begun to cook or even to finish up my shopping. *sigh*

I don't suppose you want to fly here, cook for me, then go home and finish up? No? I didn't think so, but a girl can dream.

Fly out here and spend it with us? Both of you?

We have a fold out couch and an air mattress...

BTW, looks like I'm not going to Escapade. There's a good chance I'll be on a panel during the President's Day conference of the Jewish Orthodox Feminist Association.

Stupid priorities...:)

Thanks for the invite. It's a bit late to get plane tickets, unfortunately.

Definitely stupid priorities. Feh.

Hey, after Rosh Hashana, you want to help me learn about how to implement the cooking aspects of being shomer Shabbat? I know the rules. The logistics of cooking are kicking my ass though. I could call you?

You can absolutely call me.

The logistics are only hard until you start doing them, and then they become second nature. Really. :)


I really do understand most of what I need to do, but some of the ways to make them possible just escape me.

My email is lizyjn @ earthlink.net, if you want to organise the phone call after YK.
