Jewish dinner......



We went to Ann Arbor for a couple days. I had my hair done, we met friends for lunch and dinner, shopped and shopped and shopped. We arrived home around 4pm and I promptly took a nap, I was exhausted. When I woke up, I was in no mood to cook. I told Robin she was on her own( you wouldn't believe what she came up with for her dinner) and I made some noodles and cottage cheese. How can I describe this to you? Most people( read: None ashkenazi jews) find this dish very unappetizing. My ex couldnt stand it, and Robin doesnt like it either. To me, this is the ultimate jewish comfort food. Danielle( a NY Jew like myself) brought me some amazing Sterling Brand cottage cheese from Toledo.

So basically, you boil some egg noodles( I used NO Yolks),I rinse my noodles because I like them kinda cool. Add some cottage cheese, and plenty of fresh cracker pepper and some salt. I usually add a tbls of sour cream, but this cottage cheese was so creamy, I didnt need to add any.

I hope Danielle enjoys the truffles we brought her.

I looooove cottage cheese! I wish they had some in Korea. I'm going to eat a lot of it when I get back to Canada!
I think matzoh ball soup is the ultimate Jewish comfort food, but yours looks yummy.
I want to see your hair doo!

Actually, it sounds really yummy... I have this fixation on cottage cheese with cracked black pepper and I love noodles... I would eat it.

So what did Robin have??

Robin had meatloaf nachos. I defrosted a mini turkey meatloaf and she cut it all up and threw it on chips with cheese. Weird if ya ask me.

Like minds, eh....?

Glad you liked it! Haven't tried the truffles yet - I want to eat them away from Dylan, so she doesn't take any for herself!

I'm not Jewish but I've always liked noodles and cottage cheese (I always thought it was a Polish thing!). I like sautéed onions with it and lots of black pepper. If I really want to fancy it up, I'll add spinach.

Hey, I'm an Ashkenazi Jew, and that looks kinda gross, but whatever floats your boat. Then again, I eat raw tofu straight from the container. I'm not a fan of gefilte fish either :)

Yes, I love kugel and blintzes. I have made a terrific sweet potato kugel from Nancy Berkoff's Vegan Passover Recipes.
