Thanks for the offer Bitter Clinger but i'm too far away. Its been 35 years since i have been to Dallas. Only been there twice when i had a couple of friends living there back then in the Calinas area. I think thats what it was called.

Happy Hanuka my friends. I wish i had some Jewish friends so i could eat some homemade matzo ball soup, rugelach and sufganiyot and other tasty stuff. :angel: :seeya:
Maneshewitz makes a pretty decent Matzoh ball soup in a box. You can probably find it at your local grocery store. Very easy to make... Just need to be patient about letting the matzo mix set up for a short while before making balls, AND, don't roll them too tight or they'll come out hard in the middle.

The Lipton version isn't as good, but still isn't bad.

I like to add some small noodles to mine. Rice isn't bad either. Wife likes to add leftover chicken (pulled, never sliced), but I don't like chicken. If you're into Asian Fusion, I like to add some sliced Kamaboko fish cake as well.

LOL.
Thanks for the info RoyGBiv. If i find it at Kroger when i go i will get a box to try my hand at making it. However, i'm thinking they'll look more like flap jacks when get through with them since i'm not much of a cook.

It's a huge error to assume that someone keeps kosher because they're Jewish. A Jewish friend turned me on to chocolate with bacon in it (which is amazing).

Very true. My grandmother kept a kosher house for my grandfather but she and the rest of us were spoiled and had non-kosher as well as kosher foods. Grandma kept three sets of dishes in order to do this. And during WWII all of the bacon grease was saved for the war effort. Not sure what the military did with it but we did our share.

Interestingly enough, where I live the only place to really get kosher products were at a Lebanese grocery. Not meat but packaged kosher foods.

Kashrut (practice of keeping Kosher) is not well understood. The animals that are considered Kosher in the Bible are by and large vegetarian and do not eat of dead flesh. The separation between life and death, good and evil is fundamental to the practice of Judiasm. I am certain that chocolate and bacon is awesome, and I am equally certain that I will not intentionally partake.

The reasons for the multiple sets of dishes is not for kosher/non-kosher, but maybe your grandma used them that way. It is to ensure that meat and dairy products are not eaten or stored on the same dish. This was done in ancient times for health/sanitary reasons, as cleaning/washing were minimal at best. My Grandma did this and that's where I learned "milchadech" and "flechadech" from her in Yiddish.

Having grown up in NYC on "Lawn Giland," in a Jewish family, there were two fabulous Jewish Delis in my neighborhood. Alas, that was the '50s and they are gone now. Are there any true Jewish Delis anywhere in the DFW area? I'd pay big money for a big fat potato knish, and a "real" hot pastrami on rye :mrgreen:
Not a deli, but there was a kosher butcher in the Tom Thumb by UTD. They had knishes and similar foods most of the times I was in there. Good salami, which is what I went for.

As an aside, it is the only place I have ever seen a shelf of kosher sushi being sold.

Slightly off topic but the bacon grease was stabilized, filtered, then used as a machining lube. I worked in a machine shop in Utah that had pallets of the stuff and we used for drilling, milling and turning everything from aluminum, to stainless, and high carbon steels.

Kenny and Ziggy's in Houston is amazing (has been called the best deli in Texas and is quietly killing Katz's, which is sad). They have a ton of Kosher options, but literally half of their sandwiches have cheese on them for all the goyim. They still don't do pork, but I just assume that they source their meat from the small number of kosher suppliers in the Northeast that everyone uses.

It also made a huge difference in public health. Neurocysticercosis is still the LEADING cause of seizures in most of the world and is only really unknown in the West in modern times. Completely avoiding pigs was really the only way to avoid that disease in the ancient world, as the parasite's life cycle involves pigs and humans and actually only causes the awful form of disease in humans if you consume contaminated human feces (which is still prevalent in the age of hand santizer...people are filthy). You can't just cook your food well- you have to trust your entire city/village to do so as well.

Likewise, rabbits still carry Tularemia. I just assume that camels and rock badgers are filthy creatures that one wouldn't eat regardless.
