All Quiet on the Yarnarian Front!

DD and i went off to the Short Hills Mall today in search of some concealer for her. I haven't been to this mall in maybe a year or more. For those of you not in the area, the Short Hills mall is quite posh and upscale. There used to be a Borders there, and that left. That was my entire reason for checking out the mall: the book store. So now I very rarely go. I like nice clothes but I'm not much of a shopper. That's why I love Coldwater Creek: it's all contained in one nice store.

So we walked up and down the mall, which is quite small compared to the biggies like the Mall of America. Pretty stores with prices to match. Not a place where kids like to hang out, which makes it more civilized I guess. We had a grand time, and now I don't have to go back for another year or so.

DD decided that she wanted to try dyeing some yarn, so we did that too. I think she liked it a lot.

Elder DD ended up in the emergency room early this morning; she's on a particular medicine that can get wonky. Her dose had been raised, and it did not act nicely on her. But she's ok, now. A bit shaky I think, but fine. The doctor reduced her dosage so she'll be good as new in a couple of days.

That's all the excitement around here, and that's enough. All is quiet now, and we're happy for it.

Tomorrow we make matzo balls! Lots of matzo balls. Enough for 15 people matzo balls. I'm going to freeze them before cooking them. Then I'll defrost them on Saturday for that night's seder.

Carolyn - Matzo balls are done, all 43 of them. I don't know why I always make such a fuss over them; they go pretty quickly. I froze them, so in a little while, I'll peel them off the wax paper and put them in ziplock bags.

KV - A good Pesach to you and yours. May your matzo balls be the right consistency!

Linda - Peace reigns again; DD is feeling much better!

Christine - You have to admit that Short Hills is easier to negotiate than the MOA. I don't dare go to MOA alone because I get lost!

Holly - This is the first time I've frozen them in an uncooked state. I just peeled them off the wax paper, and stored them in a zip lock bag. I'll pre-cook in water and then plop in the soup. It was so easy.

Oh my. I hope Eldest DD is continuing to get back to normal.

I don't envy you having to make all those matzo balls! But then, I don't like to cook.

I'm not from the area, but I've been to Short Hills Mall a couple of times when I'm out in Roseland on business trips. Nice place - but yah... nothing like the MOA!!

Sometimes it's just very, very nice to have it "all quiet." Enjoy.

Organized woman!

our method is usually mashing together the Matzoh Balls right about the time that they need to be dropped in the boiling broth.

(Vegetable broth here, vegetarian friendly. As a result, it doesn't seem to be too much damaged by over cooking).
