chicken soup serenity
THE JOYS OF NOSHING
pumpernickel, rye perception
kasha knish consciousness
carpe diem! kosher dills
matzo ball...memento mori...
borscht with sour cream dream
kishke with gravy
cream cheese, onion, and lox on a bagel is all you need
to know of love...
or maybe the hole in the bagel's enough--
love finds its way
