Working between the Holidays

Tonight, my nephew is coming for Shabbat dinner.  His mother adored my mother’s stuffed cabbage.  I decided to recreate my sister’s favorite dish. I know, I just made a batch for Rosh Ha Shanah. I finally figured out that when you core the cabbage before steaming the leaves off you need to really dig out that core.

Perhaps my life was made easier because I used a different variety of cabbage. The cabbage I had used for Rosh Ha Shanah was  round like a basketball. The cabbage I used for today’s stuffed cabbage was squat.
The pot pictured above is huge. It is a large oval. You could easily bathe a 6 month old child in this pot.  I once cooked a 30 lb turkey in this pot. The magic of photography has foreshortened the massive oval into a circle. 

I even, for the sake of this blog plated the cabbage onto a cake plate so you could admire their adorableness.

I baked challah. I will make salad later and my son made spiced roasted potatoes. I pulled a plum tart out of the freezer for dessert. I had baked it for Rosh HaShanah but our guests brought dessert.

I haven’t just been cooking.ironing

I ironed all of these table cloths along with a few dress shirts and  some table scarves.
I even got some work done on the bag for Danielle's chuppah.

Shabbat Shalom!!!
