Just an Ordinary Day

After Ulpan today I went to the Mercaz. I got to the bank just before they closed to pick up our checkbook. I stopped at the grocery store to pick up some items that could not be purchased at our regular supermarket.

I then went for a haircut. It was cheaper than Toronto and they did a pretty good job. It is a little short on the sides, which I think makes me look more Israeli. The most unusual part was that they washed my hair after the haircut. I guess it makes sense but I have never seen or heard of such a thing before. I then walked home before picking up Channah from school.

Rachel found really fresh bread, so we had sloppy joe's for dinner. It was really good. The landlord came over to fix or arrange to fix a number of minor problems.. It was then a quiet evening as we are both exhausted from unpacking. Beginning next week Ulpan switches to 4 days a week.

How do you make your Sloppy Joes?

Ground Beef (I used maybe 1/8-1/4 kilo), small thing of tomato paste, about a third of a cup of ginergerail or sprite or something like that, garlic, onion, pepper, salt. Bring it all to a boil so the meat cooks.

Then add some bread crumbs to dry up enough of the liquid that it is not saucy but more loose meaty.

Serve open faced on bread.
