I have no problem avoiding meat during the Nine Days. I actually like dairy. But I really like fish. Here's this week's menu:
Sunday dinner: fresh sushi
Monday lunch: baked salmon (from the Nursing Home)
Monday dinner: not-so-fresh sushi
Tuesday lunch: tuna sandwich
Tuesday dinner: microwaved baked salmon
Wednesday lunch: tuna sandwich on very bad tasting bread
I have to pause here to insert an Instant Messenger exchange with my wife regarding Wednesday's lunch (because I know how much she enjoys when I do this):
Mrs. B: did you take a lunch?
PT: I just ate that brownberry bread.
PT: it tasted really bad
Mrs. B: OK
Mrs. B: You probably forgot to take the mold off.
PT: OMG you gotta helpme I'mgonnadie!
Mrs. B: The good times are over.
Wednesday dinner: Fried tilopia
Thursday lunch: Kit Kat bar (drug rep cancelled)
Update: Thursday dinner: reheated fried tilopia
Friday lunch: tuna on marble rye. Hold the mold.
Update 2: Kiddush at shul: MORE SUSHI?!
Shalosh seudos: Gefilte Fish
I think Ima growin gills!!!!!!
