So, Mr. B and I were buying challah at Wegmans the other day.Â If you’ve never been to a Wegmans, it’s exactly like any other grocery store.Â In the same way that Turandot is exactly like High School Musical.Â We buy challah there as one would buy crack. On the downlow.Â I never know if you’re only supposed to eat it on Shabbat, so I sneak up to the bread aisle, look around to make sure no other Jew is coming.Â “Cover for me, Vasya,” I yell at Mr. B like Russian pilots did in World War II and run into the fray.Â Even though we are nowhere near Stalingrad.Â Also, Mr. B’s name is not Vasya.Â I grab it and run.Â When I get home we eat handfuls of it.
So, the other day, when we surreptitiously bought our Jewbread and were munching at home, I came across the following article in my Rachael Ray magazine.Â Yes, I read Rachael Ray, and if you say anything snide about it, I will most likely punch you.Â My feelings are still raw from the beating my Hebrew name got the other day.Â This is what I came across there.
That’s right.Â It’s a Pork Roast Panini.Â ON CHALLAH ROLLS.Â My version of keeping kosher is to at least boil and peel the shrimp, but even I was kind of offended by this.Â Is it ok to have non-kosher products on challah rolls? Is this taboo, even for non-observant Jews?Â I think it’s crazy.Â So does Vasya.
