I was inspired by this post from Kosher on a Budget to try and make my own mayonnaise. It was really simple and even with gathering all the ingredients and blending, the whole thing took UNDER A MINUTE - quite a far cry from the way our grandmothers used to do it!
Did I need to do it? No.
I thought it might be nice to find another way to make Shabbos special.
I've had a rant stewing along this line for several weeks now.... I'm trying to find the best way to broach the topic without offending anyone. I'm not quite there yet.
So for now, let's just leave it at the fact that I think everyone should find their own way to honor the Shabbos and make it feel holy. If something isn't working - change it. But never give up on trying to feel the beauty of Shabbos.
Oh. and next week, I'm going to add a little garlic to the recipe. It needs a bit of "kick" ;)
