As you can guess by the title of this post, I’m Jewish. I was born and raised Jewish, had the Bat Mitzvah, attended Hebrew School, went to Shabbat services…. But, I married a gentile.

Blowout For Dinner?

My husband and I were in that newborn-first-child-we-can-still-do-everything-we-did-BEFORE-we had-a-baby-phase.  We were young and naive.  Well, I was young.  He was just naive.  {LOVE YOU BABE!}  So of course we decided to go to dinner.  Easy as a blowout pie, right? We ordered some appetizers, chips and salsa for him, green bean fries with dipping sauce […]
