E is sick with a flu-like thing, I’m doing our erev cooking routine, and lots of indoor sprouts are coming up. That’s about as domestic as it gets. Dinner is: roasted organic free-range chicken; baked sweet potatoes with molasses, maple, and spices; basmati rice with carrots; and roasted Mediterranean-style brussels sprouts. Pretty unambitious menu. If I tell you what’s for dessert, you’ll have to kill me. (OK, I give in, it’s—donut holes! To feed my craving! So kill me.) Shabbat shalom and to our health! We need it.
