The week long Holiday of Sukkot is characterized by utterly unbridled joy.booyah

It reaches its climax on Simchat Torah, when we celebrate the conclusion, and restart, of the annual Bible reading cycle.

The highlight of the holiday are “hakafot”, marching and dancing with Bible scrolls around the reading table in the synagogue.

    Hi Angel! Those piccy’s of your yummy food look wonderful!
    I hope you have the most blessed of holidays, both tonight, for Shemini Atzeret, and Tomorrow for the Simchat Torah!

    I wish we lived closer and could have dinner! That would be awesome.
    I also love the little pic at the bottom with the Guardian Angel and the two Children.
    God Bless and have fun!

    Well now, it was just last Thursday I grabbed Mom and my eldest and hauled em over the mountains to listen to my youngest play in his college band. They iz good, selected as a “featured band” from all the university’s on the West Coast for some big shindig up in Seattle in the middle of November, and I wanted to git up and cut a rug. But all them tuxes and evening gowns kinda made me think keeping my fat one in the seat wud be a gud ideer.

    Oops, got off track, children do dat, huh?

    We wuz stuck in dat little BMW for the better part of six hours and naturally when two women folk git a fella in a place he cain’t escape from they commenced to yakking mah ears off. T’wrent so bad I guess, when we git together we go back and remember the good times and start remembering ’bout all them things that we thought we had forgot about.

    I dunna know why it popped inta mah head but I blurted out “Mom I sur do miss yur stuffed cabbage, can you give me the recipe?”. This is what I got.

    1.) 10 lbs hamburger. (Four boys and yur Dad sur git’s hungry.)

    2.) 2 cups minute rice. (For texture after whuppin you for being boys.)

    3.) Cuppla eggs. (For holding power, I wuz losin my sanity onna a daily basis.)

    4.) Onions, garlic, carrots, green beans, corn, broccoli,,,, (forever changing depending on what wuz on sale, cuz you boys were always seeing the Doc and money only goes so far.)

    5.) Secret spices. (Four at a time cuz that iz all we cud afford at the time.)

    6.) Spaghetti sauce. (Four Brothers brand if I member rite.)

    7.) Cabbage leafs and toothpicks (For sure.)

    And son it didn’t matter how many steps uv prep were taken, how many thangs I put inta it or how long it took to cook, cuz when I yelled out the back door, “Stuffed cabbage on the table, ya’ll come a running and I knew the love I put in the recipe iz what you really wanted.

    Mom’s are forever!

    Hope your young’z remember to enjoy the pinks, the yellows, the oranges, the reds, the greens, the browns, the purples (some cabbage iz that way too) and all the varied nuances uv the colors that make us appreciate how far we have come because of the ones that came before.

    Life is a recipe uv choice. Put into it whatcha want and maybe it will feel good on your lips.

    Angel, are you eating again? How do you keep that girlish figure?

  11. Katie says:

    Notice how everything has honey in it. And me on a diet.

    Have a good holiday.

  12. Ricky Vines says:

    My mouth watered at the pics. I almost licked the monitor.

  13. Leticia says:

    Oh gosh! I think I am hungry, again. Especially that honey cake.

  14. Seane-Anna says:

    Hi Angel! Sukkoth is the Feast of Tabernacles, right? It sounds fun and interesting. I’ll have to learn more about it. Glad you enjoyed yourself!

  15. Freedombytheway says:

    YUM!

  16. Quite Rightly says:

    Joy back at you, Angel!

  17. Debbie says:

    Yum Yum, Sweet Honey Cake

  18. Bob Mack says:

    Angel, your commentary is eclipsed only by your cookin’.

    Hi Angel,
    OFF Topic:
    httptimothyjhammonscom/2011/10/22/hyatt-hotels-enforce-sharia-law/

    Thought you might be interested in that one…

  20. Z says:

    I didn’t see a time on the invitation……..? :-) Eat well and have a joyous time!

  21. Timothy says:

    Hi Angel,
    Don’t pay any attention to my previous post on the hyatt story. Turns out the Hyatt was offering the room for free and when the protests started to mount, they didn’t want the hassles. If the Tea Party had been paying for the room, I think there would have been a story.
    Blessings

    The one problem with coming to ‘Woman, Honor Thyself’ is that I usually end up craving food after paging through a few pics of delicious dishes.

    ;-P

    Happy Sukkot, Angel.

    I’m partial to the cabbage, but the chicken sounds delicious.
