Zucchini Caviar from Beyond the Sea

As Passover is winding down to the end, and we are hoping to spend the next one “next year in Jerusalem,” here is a repeat of one more of my Pesach recipes. Enjoy, Beautiful People!

Tzar Ivan the Terrible was a cruel tyrant. Everybody knows that. And just like many things that “everybody knows” and thus nobody questions, the sobriquet “Terrible” should be taken with a grain of salt. Since we are in the middle of Pesach (Passover), I recommend Kosher for Passover Red Sea Salt.

Ilya Yefimovich Repin (1844 - 1930)  Ivan the Terrible and His Son Ivan on November 16th, 1581  Oil on canvas, 1885  199.5 × 254 cm (78.54 × 100 in)  State Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow,  Russia

True, he did accidentally kill his son Ivan Ivanovich, but the kid had the temerity to argue with dad! You gotta have respect for your elders! However, look at the other European monarchs, his contemporaries: Henry VIII used to chop off his wives’ heads left and right, presumably considering it much cheaper than suing for divorce (I know, the Pope wouldn’t grant him a divorce, so he eventually became his own Pope – the original DIY guy). Catherine de Medici killed close to 30,000 Huguenots during the Night of St Bartholomew, and that was no accident!

Fast forward four hundred…

    1. Weekend is coming to an end and Pesach is over. My kitchen is back to normal, Passover dishes and utensils are packed away till next year, and I am finally taking a little rest.
      I hope you had a nice weekend, Michael, and I wish you a wonderful week.

      1. Oh, all “passed over”, but this does not prevent one from continuing to party. 😉 At some point we also have to celebrate the end of the pandemic in a big way. 🙂

  3. Bullies come in all shapes and sizes, and are from every walk of life. It’s sad that we have to watch out for them.

    Meanwhile, this recipe makes my mouth water!

    Hmm, why I’m always working on respecting my dad, and Mama!!

    1. LOL Actually, the young prince tried to defend his sister who was being yelled at for inappropriate (read “too sexy”) attire, and dad threw his staff at him. Young Ivan fell down and hit his head on the corner of a table. The rest is a legend.
      Just curious: in your mind, what constitutes respect, as in “Respect your Father and your Mother”?

        I used to think it meant, “Do anything I tell you to do, NOW!!” I found out much later, that is NOT what God intended! I am respectful to him, “Yes, sir, or No, sir.” I try to help him, whenever I can. I’m helping him prepare for his final homegoing. I email him, sometimes visit. And I offer my help to his wife, whenever she needs me. I no longer let him control me, or verbally abuse me. I just leave. Is there more that I’m missing?

      2. Actually, it’s a lot more than required. You are supposed to provide, or help with, food and shelter, and talk respectfully. Visiting, at his age, most probably falls under “helping with shelter,” and perhaps e-mails are the same as talking respectfully. We go a little further, such as never to sit in their place (while they are alive, of course), get up when they walk into a room, and offer food and drink first when there are other people present.

        Yes, I do agree with those things. However, my case is a little different, since he was my first, and worst abuser, until my first engagement at 20. So, I do have to distance myself many times. God is still working on helping me forgive, and heal. I have to protect myself.

      4. I am sorry to hear that, my dearest purple person! Yet you are not required to forgive, other than in a general sense of forgiving everyone and because you need to come to grips with your own emotional state in order to heal.

        Thank you, Dolly. I have forgiven him, but I must keep reminding myself, that doesn’t mean I have to put myself near him, to risk being hurt again. ❤
