it's 9:00 a.m. in the holy city of zefat and tonight is rosh hashana, the jewish new year. i am exhausted. i spent yesterday, cooking and doing laundry. i've been cooking and freezing since last week.
i still need to bake a honey cake, buy challah, wrap a few gifts to give to the neighbors, and clean the house. i am completely spent. my carot tsimus looks like something the dogs made. hint #1, don't cut up the prunes and apricots into little pieces. i don't know what possessed me to do that.
i finally worked up enough courage to go the dentist yesterday. i even went to the next town to do it. he needed more time to assess my mouth so i have to go back next week. i met some acquaintances who offered me a ride back to zefat, so i hung out with them for about an hour at the maul. watching people try on clothes is a drag. anyay, i got home and started cooking.
i defrosted my pot roast, tuna steaks, and meatballs on top of the electric stove last night. what was i thinking? the stove got wet and i blew out all of the electricity for a while.
i just went through my emails and i learned that fruit is a life saver only if it's eaten raw and on an empty stomach; and that drinking cold water after a meal gives you cancer. i generally, avoid eating fruit at all costs. and i like it cooked with honey. i love baked apples. that reminds me, what am i going to make for dessert tonight?
i do not like feeling this tired when i have so much to accomplish. perhaps, i can send the kids out to buy the challahs later. my kitchen is a mess and the counters are covered in ants. i went to the store to finally buy ant spray. would you believe that i left my check book at home and didn't have enough cash on me to buy it?
i don't want to look at food this morning. i think that i am all 'fooded' out. tasting the tsimis all afternoon didn't help. eating a tuna sandwich at midnight was definately, a big mistake. i still have to cook up the fish heads, leeks, spinach, string beans, pumpkin, and beets. and i have to de- pip the pomegranates.
maybe i should have gone to sleep early last night. ya think? i wish you all a good, sweet year!
