I am not.
Sundown tonite was the first night of Passover. It’s my favorite Jewish holiday. I love Sedars and Matzoh and Chopped Liver and Chorosis (apples, walnuts and bad jewish wine)
I didn’t get to have a Sedar this year. I may have one with friends but doubtful as I don’t have any free time until after the holiday. If I lived in NY, I would have gone to my brother and SIL’s with everyone. Sister and Princess included. Oh well, I went to the gym and had salad for dinner. I was soooooo proud of myself. I was starving after working out and knew I only had lettuce in the house, so I forced myself to go food shopping and only get what I needed for dinner tonite. Shopping w/out impulse buying, is really hard when you’re hungry.
I am trying to follow Passover this year. I usually make it about 5 days w/out bread, then I forget. But this year, I will go the whole 7 days. Or I will try.
So I go to the supermarket. I get stuff to make salad, but I want some protien in it so I get ham, cheese and shrimp.
Right in that sentence I broke about 1 billion Jewish laws.
No Ham- pigs are considered unclean so all pig products are bad. This isn’t normally a problem for me as I am not a big pork/bacon eater. I have to be in the mood.
Cheese – no problem with cheese, but it’s very unclean to mix dairy and meat. So not only did I mix dairy and meat, I did it with the uncleanest meat ever (never order a cheeseburger in a Jewish deli)
Shrimp. Again – shellfish are considered bottomfeeders and therefore unclean. No this, I don’t care. I love shellfish. Crabs, lobster, mussels, clams, shrimp (if flavored properly, lots and lots of old bay). Growing up by the Cheasapeke Bay will give most people a love of crabs (shut up) since it’s a stable. Or it was in my house.
So, I didn’t eat bread, but I still destroyed the good Jew award by eating/mixing 3 big no-no’s in Jewish religion.
What a good Jew I am.
