No, please relax, it's not scandalous, just, surprising.
Friday afternoon, just a couple of hours before Shabbat, even before I had finished cooking and cleaning, I walked out of the house to do errands. And only one of the errands really had to be done before Shabbat. Usually I ask my husband to go out on Fridays for errands, but I felt that I had to do it.
I took a noodle kugel to a neighbor, who needed some cooking help.
- 1 package of broad, flat noodles
- 4 eggs
- light brown sugar and cinnamon, to taste
- optional, raisins, or any other sweet fruit
- cook noodles, rinse
- add cinnamon and sugar
- wait until it cools a bit, and then add the eggs
- bake in a medium oven, like for a cake, until "solid."
After delivering the kugel, I brought a picture cd to neighbors. They were pictures I had taken of a project they had worked on. I stayed to chat a bit. Then I took another cd to a different neighbor. Those pictures I had taken two years ago, and somehow, she never got them. I had to burn a new disk when I did the housekeeping.
And then I got back home, quickly finished cooking, washed the floor and put a super-quick post on Eye of Storm, and it was time for Shabbat.
