Sketching Out Blog: Sketches of art, watercolor, photos, recipes, books, interviews, Jewish topics, and Highland Park, New Jersey


Batya is hosting the Kosher Cooking Carnival this month, and she is awaiting your food posts. It doesn’t need to be a recipe. Submit a KCC article by October 27 with the KCC page. Batya describes KCC:

KCC accepts posts about all aspects of kosher cooking, including Halacha, tradition, jokes, anecdotes, restaurant and cookbook reviews.

And I will be hosting the next JPIX, the carnival of images presented by Jewish bloggers. Little Frumhouse on the Prairie is the “manager” of this blog carnival. Submit a JPIX article by October 31 with the JPIX page. Carnival description:

JPix is a carnival for Jews and their pictures, it doesn’t necessarily have to be that ‘joyous expression of art’ which photography can capture, it doesn’t have to be just about photos of Eretz Israel, though they are most welcome. It’s not even about communicating some deep spiritual meaning in a long photo essay, although that’s all right, too. It’s about two things: You’re Jewish and you have photos you want to share, whether they be family, historical, artful, funny, quirky. It’s about sharing.

And anybody in the whole wide world with internet access can enjoy the JPIX carnival.

So, if you are preparing for the upcoming holiday of Sukkot, write up a recipe. Write up your menu. Photograph your Sukkah. Photograph your lulav and etrog. Photograph your kid’s (or some other person’s kid’s) Simchat Torah flag. Draw a picture with crayons of a sukkah, and post that. Describe the vast quantities of food you have eaten during these holidays. Post a food joke. Thank you!

When are the deadlines for the carnivals? If I get my act together in time, my kids usually make little "sukkahs" out of square rice cakes (could use graham crackers) with peanut butter to "glue" the sides together. We then decorate them with little fruit shaped candies :). It's a fun project and even very young children can manage it with a bit of help.

Robin, I added the deadlines. Thanks for considering the little decorated sukkah as a post; it could work for either carnival.

Thanks for the reminder; I had more or less forgotten.
