10:59 pm - The side effects of living in a Jewish neighborhood
It's the High Holy Days in my neighborhood, so I have some things I'm happy about now & some I'm not so happy about.

The good news:

Chopped liver is on sale at the grocery store deli. Seltzer water too.

The bad news:

My favorite kosher restaurant is closed for most of this week and half of next week as well.

~~ goes into pastrami withdrawal ~~

~~ jonesing for some matzo ball soup also ~~

For all my friends who are of Jewish heritage, may you be inscribed in the Book of Life for another year!!!

Thank you!!

If you want pastrami, try an Italian place.

You're welcome! :)

If you want pastrami, try an Italian place.

True, they do sell pastrami there, but it's not as good. Ben's Kosher Deli Restaurant cures its own pastrami and corned beef -- and you can REALLY taste the difference!!!

Addendum to my comment above:

Italian places also don't serve huge overstuffed hot pastrami sandwiches.

I really love those with lettuce and tomato on some nice Jewish rye bread with caraway seeds -- mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm . . .

Yum!

But Matzoh balls are also sold in your average grocery store.

(There really aren't any Kosher places here, as you can imagine)

The only matzo balls available in grocery stores here are in the frozen food section -- in Tabatchnik soups. (Not sure of the spelling, but that's what it sounds like when you say the brand name.) Sometimes you can find some in jars near the Mrs. Adler's gefilte fish or the Gold's borscht and schav, but those aren't really very good.

Best is Ben's!! :D

Nice and fresh and yummmmmmmmmmmmy in the tummmmmmmmmmmmy!!!!

:)

You use PASTRAMI to make REUBENS?!?!?!?!?

:O

I've never heard of pastrami being used in that before -- only corned beef!!

Tracy makes a neat little thing - sort of an open face reuben on a Rye Triscuit cracker. And yes, it includes the sour kraut and the dressing.

Grocery store pastrami isn't as tasty as Ben's, since Ben's cures its own pastrami. It's OK -- just not as tasty.

You've eaten there yourself, from what you've told me -- I'm surprised you can't taste the difference.

Or maybe you never ate their pastrami sandwiches . . . ? (I know you wouldn't try their mushroom barley soup, which I think is absolutely delicious!!)
