There is still time for those of us on this side of the Atlantic:

Thursday Cholint Miniseries is back with this week's feature:

How To Make A Good Cholint

the quick easy expensive way: get a good piece of meat and drop it in. case closed

the cheap longer and harder way: try ketchup, paprika, garlic, honey, beer, Coke, hot pepper, black pepper, white pepper, oregano, tumeric, basil, chili powder, hot dogs, kishka, vodka and anything else that looks lonely in the pantry until you have the perfect taste.

there are two problems with this, one is that you will only know the next day, on shabbos, how it turned out. by then you may have forgotten the magic recipe. second problem is that you might have to wait for your grandkids bar mitzvah before it actually turns out right.

which leads us to the third option which is not for the faint of heart: let the wife make it. they seem to be ok looking in these books called cookbooks for a recipe. any self-respecting man would know that to look in a cookbook is almost as bad as asking for directions when driving. that is why it is best left for the better half to do.

have a great shabbos

p.s. remember to put in kishka. that way if the cholint turns out awful you won't go hungry.

Ode to The Great Equalizer

Far across the abyss
do like that, or like this?
Connecting is hit or miss
S'rugie velvet leather
can they live together?
excuse me sir, wait a moment
heraldic Heavenly agent
wafting scent I'm smelling
deeply soul-compelling
heavenly aromas
just like Mommas
gather round a bean-stew
dig in and chew
harmony among Jews
wrought by you
Sometimes life is like tuna with not enough mayonaise

Give, Forgive

Now it’s three in the morning

And I’m lying awake.

I’d rather be sleeping,

For goodness sake.

But my head’s just a’ buzzin’

With ideas galore

About that bowl of chollent

I ate the night before.

Pretty ordinary dish

And it tasted just great.

Just simple bean soup

with challah on a plate.

Over bread you say?

Why on earth is that?

Why’d you eat chollent soup

On a plate that is flat?

That’s the way mom served it.

Tasted great that way.

Her secret recipe,

potato ala gourmet.

When I was growing up,

And Mom was in the kitchen,

Good meals for her family

She’d always be fixin'.

Fried fish from the lake,

Or mushroom barley soup,

Sometimes a pot roast,

For the gathering group.

Her recipe book

Lying on the counter,

With nary a glance,

Would she do it honor.

She’d substitute here,

And she’d substitute there,

Till you’d hardly recognize

That savory fare.

It didn’t seem to matter,

how it did look –

Unfailingly great,

She was a wonderful cook.

Now back to the chollent,

The subject of this ode.

I want to honor that cherzel,

From our warm abode.

She’d start the night before,

Washed those northern beans,

Put them in a pot,

All bug-free and clean.

Soaked them overnight,

Then in the morn,

Added a big shank bone,

With some meat left on.

She’d chop up an onion,

and a garlic clove.

Made sure the water covered

Put the pot on the stove.

Just simmered for hours.

That’s all they’d do.

We’d enjoy the aroma

Of that cooking bean stew.

We built up an appetite

And tayvah inside.

That chollent and kishka

Was cooked with pride.

There’s another benefit

That we don’t talk about.

Chollent fills you up

And then cleans you out.

When the chollent was done,

and was ladled o’er.

We took two good scoops

Would do, for sure.

There were no special amounts,

Just added to the mix,

Served it nice and hot

Like my mother did.

My Ode to Zemmy's chollent

Is coming to an end.

I hope you’ve enjoyed

This story, My Friend.

It’s five a.m.

And I’m getting tired.

My eyes are drooping,

And my brain is mired

Into thoughts of sleep

And not bean soup.

I’ve run out of steam.

the chicken flew the coop!

Cordnoy,
I'm genuinely sorry that you have difficulty sleeping such that you have to spend time writing poems. But oh what a good one. It should be published.
On another note, I think you're missing a trick. The night before you had slept okay. So maybe you should eat cholent every night..?

Ahem.
מענין לענין באותו ענין
there are several reasons given why on SHABBOS we say UVA LETZION in MINCHA rather than in shacharis. my FAVORITE EXPLANATION (i thought of it myself) is that ONLY after the morning's CHULINT has had time to SIT AND CHURN in your stomach for a few hours, possibly through a heavy nap, can you FULLY APPRECIATE EVERY WORD OF THIS PASUK...

:pinch: Warning: Spoiler!


have a pleasant day.
Have a corny day ... and if you do have other plans, change 'em!!

My understanding is that shabbos even when we're not in shul is kodoish. Therefore the activities of the day that come between the end of davening and ashrei/uva letzion of mincha are not a hefsek.
