Program Notes and Food for Thought and Tummy
TABLETALK: I am honored and delighted to announce that Rabbi Jonathan Kligler, will be my guest on the program of March 18. This will air at 8 AM Eastern Time and will, as always, stream on the web.
Rabbi Kligler is a Rabbi in the "Reconstructionist" area of the various "sections" of Judaism and we speak of what that means and how it is influencing, not only, Judaism but how it compares to Unitarianism, Ethical Culture, and various other interesting insights and thoughts he shares with us. Rabbi Kligler is also a musician and we are able to offer a sample of his music at the end of the program. Something that, truly, fits our dialogue.
TRADITIONS AND SUNDAY SIMCHA: For these see the previous posts. The RR picture is great so why repeat it---scroll down for it.
Kim And Reggie Harris and Rabbi Kligler who is also on Appleseed Recordings are all set for our PASSOVER program on Sunday Simcha. Get your Matzos and favorite Pesach snacks and do not miss this one----April 1--10 AM. Me---I have a nice piece of sponge cake and a few macaroons and will be listening as well. By the way---if anybody has some Pesach recipes they would like to share why not make note of them for our other visitors. I bet there are some great chicken soup recipes and tzimis recipes out there.
OK-- I will start---not Pesach, though.
Tomato/Onion Soup---1 can of Crushed Tomatoes added to some boiling Onion Soup mix with a dash of pepper----that simple. Delicious!
Bill's SuisseKraut---(my mother's recipe)-- 1 head of cabbage (real bargain at St. Patrick;s Day)
Some caraway seeds,
1 cup Vinegar
1 cup Sugar
Shred Cabbage in a slicer and put into an oiled Wok. Add the Pepper/Caraway seeds.. Cook till tender and then add Vinegar and Sugar. Put Potato in blender w/a small amount of water. Add to Wok after other ingredients have cooked. This is for thickness.
Cook for another 3 or 4 minutes and there you have it-
--Oh how I waited for this along with wiener schnitzel from my mother---and had it at the now, sadly, gone restaurant in NYC---Moccas. Many great meals there.
OK--so Moccas is gone, Mom is gone, but the memories linger---and the taste of great food. And, great music.
