The Kreplach Blog Awards
Before the Jewish holidays, Lorri of http://jewwishes.wordpress.com/ awarded me with this cheery “I heart your blog” award. I decided to wait until the end of the holidays to pass the award on to some bloggers.
Drum roll, please.
Oh, wait, before the drum roll, here’s a joke:

Once upon a time there was a little boy who didn’t like kreplach (a kreplach is a Jewish wonton). So his mother decided she would take him in the kitchen while she made the kreplach. First, she prepared the dough. “What are you making?” asked the boy. “You’ll see,” replied the mother. Next she rolled out the dough. Yum, said the little boy. Then she cut the dough into squares. Mmmm, said the child. She took some meat and placed a bit in one of the squares. Yum, yum, said the little boy. She folded over one corner. Mmm, continued the boy. She folded over the next. The boy looked on with expectation. She folded over another corner, then the final corner.
“Yuck, kreplach!” declared the little boy.

Back to the drum roll…
The first kreplach award goes to Mimi at Israeli Kitchen. She had a fabulous post about kreplach right before Yom Kippur. Visit her blog for trips to Israeli markets, to Tsefat, and to delicious food and recipes.
The next kreplach award is being delivered to Mottel at Letters of Thought, who has taken us to Russia and South America, complete with beautiful scenery. Recently, Mottel became an Israeli in a post with views of the Andes. One cannot predict where Mottel will take us next.
Next we will visit Mrs. S. at Our Shiputzim, who seems to love posting about her construction. I enjoy her sense of humor and friendliness.
If you feel like passing the award onward (I always recommend a bit of hakaras hatov, recognition of good, in one’s life and blog), here are the rules:
1) Add the logo of the award to your blog
2) Add a link to the person who awarded it to you
3) Nominate at least 4 other blogs (I changed this to four; two are fine, really!)
4) Add links to those blogs on your blog
5) Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs (or via email)!
