Almost anything for a joke
We are used to small Manhattan supermarkets. The massive supermarkets that most of America tends to shop in often makes my family silly.
One of our favorite things to do when we go on vacation is to go to the supermarket. This summer our youngest became obsessed with the giant jars of cheese balls. He kept lobbying for us to buy a jar.
At one point he went on a riff about how he wanted a jar so when it was emptied he could turn it into a space helmet.
This weekend, we attended the bar- mitzvah of the son of a dear friend . Sunday morning we helped sort through the left overs from the many events. Most of a jar of cheese balls was left over. Yes, we brought it home.
My son was delighted. Last night he joked that he would love for me to make him a cheese-ball sandwich for lunch. I did.
It’s made out of cheese balls and melted cheddar cheese on home made challah. When my son comes home from school I will find out of the reality matched his fantasy.
