A couple of weeks ago after I posted about something-or-other, I received an email from an irate person who said "I thought your blog was supposed to be about ART." I wrote back and told her that art and life are inseparable. The next day I got a notice that she had unsubscribed to my blog.
I've been too busy dealing with a family crisis to post about boring blogs, or even to worry about my own blog being boring --but so be it. Nobody can be thrilling all he time...and I find it difficult to write about my art if I have not been making any. Perhaps I should invent something.
In the meantime, on another subject --
Rosh Hashanah is upon us - the Jewish New Year is early this year, coming on the heels of Labor Day! Good grief - summer has hardly ended and here we are! Even worse, Chanukah is so early this year that it falls on Thanksgiving! As we say - the Jewish holidays are either early or late -- they are never on time.
Early or not, I've been cooking and baking for tomorrow night's family dinner to usher in the year 5774. This was tonight's activity - making ruglach, which I do once a year. I made the dough last night and put it in the fridge. Tonight, I rolled i out and filled it with raisins, choclate chips and nuts.Then I rolled hem up into these little crescents and baked for 20 min or so.
They are so flaky and wonderful -- these are the last few before I put them into an airtight container.
I looked to see if I had ever posted the recipe and couldn't find it. If I get any requests, I'll get around to it. If not, I won't. Tonight, after spending almost all day in the kitchen, I think I am ready to rest up for tomorrow's houseful of kids and grands
For those of you who celebrate, I wish you a sweet year ahead. In fact, I wish everybody a sweet year, no matter when it begins.
