Placinda – Flaky Pumpkin Pie

With Thanksgiving a few days away and Chanukkah coming right after it, I will be repeating both series of recipes, one by one.
Happy Thanksgiving, Beautiful People!

A prominent Rabbi picks up an apple, pronounces the appropriate blessing, and bites into it. One of his students also picks up an apple, mutters a blessing, and takes a bite. Then he stops and asks:

“Rabbi, what is the difference between you and me eating an apple? We both say the same blessing, yet I can feel something emanating from you that I cannot define.”

“That, my son, is because you recite the blessing in order to eat, – says the Rabbi, – and I eat in order to have another chance to thank the A-mighty for offering me this beautiful, juicy, and sweet apple.”

I am sure that tomorrow your tables will be disappearing beneath a multitude of traditional Thanksgiving dishes. Until we came to the U.S., this holiday had not been a part of our yearly celebration roster. It was my father, may he rest in peace…

  7. Lulu: “Mmm, pumpkin pie! Mama had a piece of pumpkin cheesecake the other day, which isn’t the same thing I guess, but still has pumpkin in it …”

    1. Oh, dear Lulu girl, Beba had minor surgery a couple of days ago and a tooth pulled at the same time, so she gets special food, but even she doesn’t get pumpkin, and we don’t even get special food… Sob…
