Pesach Cooking 2009

Take 2 packs of frozen tilapia, preferably not Dagim.
Cut each fillet in half and then each half into 1" wide pieces.
Sprinkle with fish spices.
Take 2 potatoes and cut into similar size pieces.
Start frying the potatoes in a frying pan.
After all of the potatoes have changed color, add the fish and some more fish spices.
Stir, lower the flame and cover.
Cook, stirring occasionally until done.

Take 2 chickens, dump them into a crock pot 8 hours in advance and cover with your favorite sauce.

Layer 1: chopped garlic.
Layer 2: meat, chestnuts and walnuts.
Layer 3: salt, pepper, red hot paprika, honey, ground nutmeg.
Layer 4: yams, squash, ground meat, 2-3 hot dogs, 3 eggs.
Use a cup of coke or some slivovits for flavor.  Unfortunately no beer.

Totally unexpected

Well, this was somewhat unexpected.  For a couple of weeks NY's been gnawing on his fist, slobbering all over and having bouts of screaming.  Sounds like teething, but at three months?!  Shlomik only had his first tooth at seven months and while their behavior is different, what does that have to do with teeth.  NY was exactly one pound heavier than Shlomik but since when is that a criteria.
Was very surprised to find NY sporting a new fang this morning.
Gonna post pictures later.
