What’s for supper? Vol. 13: Women Who Love Soup Too Much

SATURDAY CHILE RELLENO CHICKEN SOUP; CORN BREAD Saturday is the only day I came close to cooking anything interesting. THIS WAS INTERESTING.The recipe I used called for roasted poblano peppers, which I've never used before. The supermarket's labels weren't clear, and I wasn't completely sure the peppers I chose would be hot enough. They sure looked pretty, though, especially after roasting, which I did under the oven broiler:Then I took off the seeds and stems and as much of the s … [Read more...]

Dear Simcha, Vol. 1

Happy Thanksgiving!  I know that many of you are very busy and/or really depressed today.  Some of you are alone, and many, many more of you desperately wish that you were.  So, rather than tax you with a challenging or insightful essay, I thought I'd take this opportunity to clean up my inbox and answer a few of the questions that people have asked me recently. *** Dear Simcha, By this time of day, I'm supposed to be basting the turkey for the fifth or sixth time so it will be golden and de … [Read more...]

Dear Simcha, Vol. 2

Dear Mr. Pfischurr, if that is indeed your name, I was thinking of sending a small I mean very very large sustaining donation to EWTN last year, but then this year I noticed that you’ve been writing for the Register for something like four years, and that certainly explains a thing or two in the downturn in quality that I have definitely noticed a lot; and my accountant, that I definitely have because I am a wealthy donor, feels the same way.  It’s stealth liberals like you who are responsible f … [Read more...]

Go forth and get Me butter, says the Lord.

Once upon a time, there was a young woman who was hosting Thanksgiving dinner for the first time. She wanted—no, needed—everything to be perfect. She planned and prepped for days, chopping vegetables, rolling dough, scrubbing baseboards, and counting silverware.

Our Black Friday tradition

Hey, I don't think it's immoral to shop on the day after Thanksgiving, or even on Thanksgiving itself.  It's depressing that so many people do it, but Thanksgiving is a secular holiday, so.  (Yes, I know that the first Thanksgiving feasts in the New World were to thank God. I just mean that it's not a feast day or a holy day.)  Buying a nice present for someone you care about doesn't mean you're some kind of hardened consumerist swine.  Some people don't have lovely family or happy associations w … [Read more...]
