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.
