The day we took the pictures for this post (I mean the first time we did, as we had a second time since we lost the camera’s memory card) we just came back from my new nephew’s Brith.
Ilya (my father in law, the proud grandpa in this case), which acted as the godfather in the Brith (which was done quietly at home, as the Raskins like to do things), told me about the first time he attended a Brith. It was about 20 years back, he was new in Israel (came from Russia), and his boss invited him to his son’s huge Brith celebration party. Ilya told someone next to him that it is the first time he is attending such an event, and then he regretted doing so: they made him stand on the stage and watch the whole thing from up close, and shortly after he simply fainted in front of everyone 🙂
He finishes telling me this story, and another jumps to his mind, about the time when he hardly knew Hebrew and someone called to look for his boss and his answer was: “he went out with your wife to the doctor” (instead of with his wife).
2 things came out of this: first he learned Hebrew much faster and second he doesn’t tell anyone anything is his first time since..
This crumble: is super easy to make (it does take a little while, but doesn’t require much attention while cooking), super tasty, and the fun part is that it is real flexible and can attend to what you currently have at home. If you don’t have mushrooms just skip them. If you have broccoli throw it in. You can really use whatever vegetables you like here, just keep in the tomatoes that give the right tone and fluids here. The crumble itself can be changed a bot as well with regards to the flours, do I do recommend at least for the first time to use the kinds and measures I wrote, as I recommend them here after much testing 🙂
