Liz is in my kitchen, making us stir-fry for dinner.
She is checking the brocolli and the spinach for bugs.
She just learned about this requirement today. (Bugs are not kosher, so Orthodox Jews have various ways of "checking" their fruit and veggies before eating, to make sure there are no tiny, unwanted creepy-crawlies in the food.)
Liz has now decided that starting today, if her produce doesn't come with kosher certification, she will be checking it herself, halachic requirement for her or no. It had never occurred to her that her veggies might get frozen with bugs inside, and she is quite displeased with this idea.
Quote of the day:
"Contrary to popular opinion, gentiles do not like bugs in their spinach."
