Biblical gourmands

While reading a bit of Exodus, I asked the kids (4 & 6) what they'd like manna to taste like (rabbinic lore has it that manna tasted like whatever the taster wanted).

4: Applesauce and ketchup.

6: Gnocchi.

6: Gnocchi.

To be fair, first she said, "Those round yellow things."

Wow, I feel dumb... what is gnocchi?!

Rebecca said...

it's pasta made out of potatoes. it's really good. it's the italian form of shlishkes. maybe you know of those?

Ezzie said...

No, but I think I figured it out from your description - thanks!

Oh yes, shlishkes. Isn't that the Polish form of chochmetzjenges?

Whoops - I meant apple juice, not that that's any better. What can I tell you? Those are her favorite foods. Reagan would be proud.
