Um, yes. . .taxes. . .taxes on gefilte fish are a bad thing.

Anyway, I had a friend of mine who’s an IRS accountant do my taxes for me in her official capacity, so I’d assume that any scams that I may have fallen for must have been official IRS scams.

I’m glad I dont pay taxes smile

But then, sad that I don’t earn enough money to warrant paying taxes.

Nevermind.

I’m sure I’m missing out on something delicious, but gefilte fish is one of the few things that I absolutely cannot bring myself to eat.

I might offer an opinion on the fish if I knew what they were and didn’t have to google the name to find out.  On the taxes however, I have plenty of opinions,  most of which the government and Revenue Canada are not interested in hearing.  But my pissiness at taxation is somewhat assauged by the fact that I do manage to work it so as to get money back each year.  I guess thats a small victory in the scheme of things.

It’s not a species of fish, it’s a dish. I’m sure if I had some homemade gefilte fish, I’d love it, because it sounds good to me. However, in the stores it looks like a jar of rotting brains floating around in dirty water.

I feel the same way (I know I’m Jewish and I’m suppose to like it, but bacon is just so much yummier).

Is it better homemade or is it only available in those jars in the kosher section at the grocery?  Looks about as appitizing as those jars of pigs feet.

And why do I suddenly feel the urge to visit the library and pick up a Rabbi Small mystery?

I would think it’s way better homemade. It’s basically smooshed fish (cod, pollack, etc) formed into patties or balls and poached. A sort of quenelle, if you are familiar with the term (I have foodie friends, I’m not that pretentious - really). I had a friend who would make it for Passover and he always promised to bring me some so I could try it “for real” but there were never any leftovers. He was apparently famous for his gefilte fish.

I refuse to eat it from the jar, but I’m open to trying a homemade version. However, there seems to be a shortage of Jewish people where I live currently, judging from the whopping one half shelf of dusty kosher products in the grocery store. I’m lucky if I can get my hands on a box of matzahs, which really sucks because I’m addicted to matzah brei and matzah ball soup.

I’ve never had homemade gefilte fish.  My great-grandmother apparently use to make it when she was younger but had stopped by the time I was born.

As to matzah brei—-yummmmm.  That actually sounds like a good lunch for today and a good way to get rid of my own left-over matza from passover. 

For passover I always make chocolate toffee matzah.  It’s just about the yummiest thing ever, but it’s a pain in the ass to make and has ruined many a cookie sheet.
