Funny Story

I have the most amusing husband on the planet. This past Shabbos (Sabbath) some of our friends made food for us so he wouldn't have to cook on Friday. He picked up some dishes from a friend and they told him that it was chicken, kugel, and some gefilte fish. Now for some background on heating food for Shabbos. Because of certain restrictions on Shabbos, we use a blech over our burners so that we can put food on and take food off of the stove. The blech is basically a piece of metal that sits over the burners and gets warm when one or more of the burners is on underneath. Ok, so the hubby gets home with the food and puts all of the dishes on the blech (besides the fish) without checking inside first. Fast forward to dinner... We take the foil off of one of the dishes and there are cut vegetables inside (cucumbers, red & green peppers, tomatoes, carrots, etc) and there is steam rising from the dish. I look at my hubby and say, "was this supposed to be heated or eaten as a salad?" He looks at the veggies and then answers, "probably a salad." Whoops!! Luckily veggies are ok to be eaten steaming hot and then they were just as good the next day straight out of the fridge. :-) I guess he learned to always look under the foil at what you're heating up before you heat it. hehehe
