So I went to make chicken soup so I poured out the soup into a pot and these four round things just flopped out and I was like wtf is wrong with this soup but they were matzah balls. I had bought matzah ball soup and…
Now I’m craving Matzah Balls.
Honestly I never really liked matzah balls. Only kind I’ve ever had that I actively enjoyed and would eat again? My friend’s recipe for cheese matzah balls … to be served in (meatless) mushroom-barley soup, a recipe from her vegetarian childhood.
The standard kind that comes in chicken soup, enh, no thanks.
(#don’t like gefilte fish either)
Please tell me you at least like bagels and lox? I’m afraid you’re perilously close to losing your Jew Card.
I know, right? HERESY.
I do like bagels and lox, chopped liver, brisket, cholent, kishke, tzimmes, pastrami with brown mustard, proper deli pickles, knishes, and kreplach — but not (aside from the abovementioned) stuffed cabbage, rye bread, herring, or poppyseed filling in hamantaschen. I think I’m still in the lead.
