I finally went on my big Boro Park trip. One of the nice ladies who've been helping so much took me in her car and DH stayed with the kids. First we hit Designer's Paradise and I got tons of stuff. I pretty much stuck with the look of skirt, shell and long sleeve blouse. I got 3 shells, 4 blouses, 2 skirts and a twin set. Phew. I'm still size 12 but hey I'll be wearing decent clothing which fits me finally.|
I also went to Frankel's the used bookstore and got a bio on Rebbetzin Grunfeld a"h, and a Me'am Loez on Bereishis for less than the price of a full price book at a regular store. It's one of those stores that if you go too much you never find anything but if you don't go that much there's always something to find.
I also found another robe for R and a skirt at Rosenbergs.
Then R wanted to listen to this Zushe Schmelzcer Alef - Beis tape we have and it's so confusing with the dialect difference but she still likes it.
I'm starting to do the Shavuous menu. Like all years I never seem to do the dairy meal. We're going out. I'm almost disappointed but it's fun to be with friends. I'll be cooking the next two days IY"H. I've got to get produce but otherwise I think we're pretty set.
Here's what I'm making: Challah, Gefilte fish (partly done already), Salads, Soup with Knaidlach, Roast, Chicken strips with Barbecue Sauce, Some unknown side dish, Some pareve dessert, Ice cream sandwiches and a few more odds and ends.
