Well, the nice thing about this week is that it’s over.
So I will entertain you with random things that don’t make me miserable.
I made this week’s challah with ground hard wheat because the child who hates what my brother in law calls kikkies is away. Kikkies are the things that disturb the otherwise smooth texture of a food, say pistachios in pistachio ice cream or raisins in challah. Before I gave birth to kid #3, my food universe was filled with kikkies. Now, they are a pleasure indulged in much less. But since child #3 is away I can make challah complete with kikies.
A friend invited us for dinner. ( that is actually a tremendous thing) I’m bringing the challah and chocolate ice cream. I made the ice cream by making a chocolate custard and dumping into our ice cream maker. Our host is into unadulterated chocolate. I didn’t get all fancy with the flavor. if I were making this for myself I might have gotten funky with the flavorings, perhaps adding a bit of
chili pepper. I am bringing some raspberries and strawberries to complete dessert.
Since this post is about random things that I like. I have included this plate. The plate depicts St. Anne’s rectory in Quincy. It was a gift from my parent’s dear friend who was a curate at St. Anne’s in the 1960’s. I like to serve blintzes on this plate, because it amuses me.
Shabbat Shalom and here’s hoping that next week will be a better one.
