Being Serious As Of Late #Coronavirus

The world has changed a bit in the past few weeks. We are taking the Coronavirus seriously and our lives in the same manner. My posts have been reflective of the feelings many of us are having. In blogging content is king and my approach is to post when inspiration strikes and for me its several times a day.

It is my hope that you will continue to follow along despite the serious tones. For many of us blogging helps us make sense of life and to connect with the world. Thanks for your following and I hope I can be of help in some way to you. Service is something you take seriously.

Keep on blogging my friends. You have an audience looking for things to read and do.

The Thing About The New Normal

From here on out there is a new normal (I have talked about this before) and there will not be a returning to the time before the virus it will be a vastly different world ahead. Getting to that new point will take time and a whole lot of patience. The long haul isn’t going to be easy but it’s the best thing for all. It’s going to be hard and humanity is tough enough.

Matzo Ball Soup

A great recipe for Passover or anytime. Check it out!

The Soup Diva

While we are spending the majority of every day at home during the Coronavirus pandemic, I’m taking the opportunity to try new recipes. Since Passover is coming, I wanted to test my luck with matzo ball soup; and I consulted with our friend Sheila* who “opened the Mommy Encyclopedia” [with additional input from my friend Jamie, who makes her version of this soup often and whose in-laws are also Jewish].

For the soup:

  • 2 chicken breasts or 4 tenders
  • 32 oz chicken stock
  • 3-4 carrots, sliced or shredded (about 1 cup)
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 1 onion, diced (½ cup)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 tsp dried dill
  • Kosher salt and black pepper to taste

For the balls:

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup matzo meal
  • 2 tbsp broth or water
  • pinch of salt

Equipment needed:

  • your 2 largest pots
  • small strainer
  • small mixing bowl
  • 1” food

Happy Passover My Jewish Friends #passover

Passover or Pesach is a major Jewish holiday and one of the most widely celebrated Jewish holidays. Together with Shavuot and Sukkot, Passover was one of the Three Pilgrimage Festivals during which the entire population of the kingdom of Judah made a pilgrimage to the Temple in Jerusalem. 

To all my friends celebrating Passover I wish you peace, love, grace and many blessings. May G-d bless you all this and in the days ahead.
