Quick Update

Shabbos was real nice. We hitched around until we ended up in Ashdod.(We started hitching pretty close to shabbos so we didnt have time to get much further.) It was warm, sunny,and came with a beach. When we got there we walked around a bit until we bumped into a frum person, and got ourselves invited to his house for shabbos. Had a great time, and really enjoyed. Thats all for now, my keyboard just ate one of my fingers and I gotta either get a band-aid or smash my space bar with a hammer. (spacebars are dangerous I tellya)

Things you can do with pareve cholent

Well you can do all sorts of things, obviously. Like pour into other peoples shoes, other peoples pants, or even your own shoes or pants.(does not feel as slimy as herring but fun nonetheless) You can even eat it. Pareve cholent is wonderful to eat, simply because even though its cholent, you can still eat milchigs afterwards -its pareve. So if you end up eating it for breakfast you can still have your coffee, and drink it too. The only problem with pareve cholent is that its pareve. Being pareve and lacking meat, causes the cholent to be slightly bland and missing something essential. In order to make it more exciting I've experimented with lots of different ways to enjoy pareve cholent.
A while back I blogged about my cholent pizza recipe, which consisted of cholent and pizza mixed together. (its gotta be done right , or you can really ruin it. Mostly make sure the cholent goes on TOP of the pizza, and you'll be okay.) More recently I tried creating all sorts of various cholent concoctions.Some worked, some didnt. (a vast understatement in the case of the luminol and copper sulfate cholent. I had to get a new pot, a new oven and a new kitchen) One of the worst tasting one was the one with cholent, olives, tomatoes and chocolate pudding. One of the more notable successes was rather tasty. (in other words this chef is recommending) It involves melting copious quantities of cottage cheese into a pareve cholent to give it a thick, wholesome, yet cholenty flavor.Maybe not gonna be in my gourmet edition of Cholent Today, but if I put it in I would definitely give it three maybe four stars. (the four depends on a couple of small details like using fresh cottage cheese, the mixing the cholent evenly, and not accidentally adding shampoo to the whole thing- something that shouldn't happen if you make sure not to keep the ketchup next to the shower)
This shabbos I don't know where I'm gonna end up, but I hope its warm. Our plan is to hitch around all friday until until we get somewhere warmer and sunnier, and we'll spend shabbos there. Thats as far as we planned, and thats quite enough for this year.

President Bush: This Ones For You

Dear Mister President,

We'd like to invite you to our apartment for the duration of your stay in Israel. You're guaranteed to have a great time. Come over, don't be shy. We'll pop open a few beers, play some guitar(we can play country if you like), smoke some hookah and eat garinim(its yummy, dont worry, you'll see). Chill. Have a great time. We don't wanna discuss politics, it would be a great way for you to relax and take a little break. Theres room for you and one other secret service agent to sleep (as we only have two couches) but theres plenty of room to hang. This is a serious invitation and we are not making jokes. I'm sure you would enjoy hanging out with us, and checking out our living quarters. You can use our DSL line if you have any calls you want to make to America, but we hope you'd rather chill than be involved in business. We'd love to take you around the area, show you some good places to eat, and just enjoy life a little as an American in Israel. You can contact me either via email, or my cell. (0546621254 in Israel)Please do not hesitate, our home is open to you.
Waiting for your call

Whoa. As reb y just pointed out its been three weeks since I last updated. Thats crazy. The point of my blog was to be able to remember the days that passed when I read my blog. Now I just lost three weeks of my life and I have no recollection of what transpired. If I would've updated I'd be able to read it and remember.(or at least read it and nod as if I remember)
Because I think the cats in this country are cute, I'm gonna put on a couple of cat pics. If you don't want to look at them you can spend your time looking at more important things like baboons urinating in rosebushes, or watching dandelions lose their puff, although those won't purr and rub against your leg, they can probably keep you occupied for a bit.
