Even Manna get's boring. In this week’s parsha, the false memory of an Egyptian bounty of fish, cucumbers, watermelons, leeks, onions and garlic leads the people to beg for meat instead of manna. Moshe’s reply is priceless and timeless: “If sheep and cattle were slaughtered for them, would it suffice for them? If all the fish of the sea were gathered for them, would it suffice for them?” Sounds a lot like my dinner table. This week I give in with a menu (including meat) worth kvetching for.
