I dressed Ahuva up in her first dress (thank you cool R.I. cousins!!) for her first shiva call. Sadly, a dear family friend passed away. Ahuva was well behaved during the visit and brought some smiles to the mourners.
Cholent [CHUH-lent] is a slow-cooked stew of Eastern European origin that is eaten on Shabbat. It may contain any combination of meats, potatoes, eggs; grains such as barley, wheat, rice; beans, chick peas, onions, spices. Done right it is delicious, warm, and comforting. Consider this Cholent a stew of ideas, thoughts, and the influences that spice up my life (aka my children)
