Win A Tallit Via A Mother In Israel

Another contest!  But this one isn’t mine, it’s being held over at A Mother in Israel.  The prize is a gorgeous tallit from Galillee Silks, a specialty silk designer located on Kibbutz Beit Haemek.

Embroidery pattern for Ju-Boy's tallit bag -- my wedding gift to him

When Ju-Boy and I got married I bought him a tallit.  He wore it first under the chuppah and has worn it every single Shabbat and chag since we’ve been married.  I gave this to him as a wedding gift, together with a tallit bag that I embroidered over the months of our engagement.  The bag has held up well, but the tallit, well… the tallit has seen better days.  There’s just so many times you can dry clean the thing.  Chanuka is coming up and I think a new tallit would be a wonderful gift, especially since Ju-Boy’s birthday also falls on the night of the second candle.

So this contest has my name all over it, but if you think you stand a chance against the fates and believe this was meant to be yours, just click on the link to A Mother in Israel and then this tallit is just a tweet or blog post away.

Good luck to all of us!

New Cookbook Giveaway — Quick and Kosher Meals in Minutes


Are you a fan of Ready Steady Cook?  Or maybe 30 Minute Meals?  I used to watch these shows all the time but always had issues with the fact that a lot of unkosher ingredients were used and I had to improvise.  Now Jamie Geller does all that work for you, and has written a cookbook on how to get supper (or lunch, or Shabbat) on the table in 20, 40 or 60 minutes.  She’ll even tell you what wine goes with the meal.

I’ll be reviewing this book early next week, after I’ve had a chance to go through the huge amount of possibilities inside.  In the meantime, I’ve got a copy to give away to a very lucky Miriyummy reader.  All you have to do is just comment on this post that you want your name put into the hat (or the Tupperware bowl, which is what I used in the last contest).

I’ve been looking through this book, there’s some really cool stuff in here.  This week I’m going to try the Mexican Burgers with Flour Tortillas and the Bowties with Salmon and Peas in Lemon Dill Sauce.  I guess I can start my diet next week… I seem to be saying that all the time now.

So don’t forget to leave a comment; I draw the names out of the Tupperware bowl on Thursday evening, November 4th.  Good luck!
