brooklyn19, you wrote: “what does defenestrate mean?”
No one answered that one…I guess it got tossed out the window.
Bonus question: Who in Tanach was defenestrated?December 22, 2008 4:23 am at 4:23 am #836631
lol yeah i guess it did.
who was specifically defenestrated? i dunno – david? when shaul’s guys came to his house? random guess.
unless it’s someone in melachim bais. i’m fuzzy at the moment.
if you mean haman’s daughter – she jumped.December 22, 2008 4:30 am at 4:30 am #836632
mod99 did you eat the doughnutsDecember 22, 2008 4:32 am at 4:32 am #836633surferMember
i didnt have any yet.im saving it for my party on thursdayDecember 22, 2008 4:34 am at 4:34 am #836634PMMember
It should be known that sufganiot are a serious problem in Hilchos Berachos. Shulchan Aruch writes that fried dough should only be eaten after saying hamotzi on something else.December 22, 2008 4:36 am at 4:36 am #836635
goodness, i hope not. mod – you have 7 more nights to be macho man. don’t kill yourself trying on the first round :}December 22, 2008 4:37 am at 4:37 am #836636anon for thisParticipant
It’s in N’viim Rishonim. And this person was definitely pushed.
BTW the latin root “fenestra” is similar to the German/ Yiddish fenster, meaning window. (Although I learned the word in elementary school, when I learned about the incident in Tanach, I didn’t figure out the etymology until years later).December 22, 2008 4:37 am at 4:37 am #836637
really? i thought one of the criteria for something to be hamotzi is that it’s afuy – baked. i think when something is fried it’s automatically mezonos.December 22, 2008 4:42 am at 4:42 am #836638liddleyiddleMember
Personally, I’m makpid, and follow both bais hillel and bais shammai. Thus, I had 9 tonight, (1 before supper and 8 after) I’ll have nine tomorrow night (2 before and 7 after) and so on until the end of Chanuka. Then, I have all the leftovers on the ninth night and go on a diet until Purim.December 22, 2008 4:44 am at 4:44 am #836639kapustaParticipant
for all you health nuts:
i made my sufganiyot with 50% whole wheat pastry flour-sold in stores by arrowhead mills brand as organic pastry flour and someone gave me a tip that sounds absolutely nuts but really works!!! put a little bit of whiskey into your sufganiyot dough-like 2 T. for 2-21/2 C. flour and it doesnt let the donut absorb the oil ever tried having an almost oil-free fried sufganiyah? its great!!!December 22, 2008 4:48 am at 4:48 am #836640
dunno, anon. i’ll get back to you on that one. it’s gonna bother me till i figure it out…December 22, 2008 5:01 am at 5:01 am #836641yenta101Member
brooklyn: good luck!
so far..i ate 2 half donuts..making 1! but i plan on having more..don’t worry! also brooklyn..its no hamotzi but i think it requires separating dough!December 22, 2008 5:19 am at 5:19 am #836642
kapusta – wow finally another real health nut! hey i might get my brothers to try something whole wheat if i spike it with alcohol! chances are they wouldn’t let me waste it on healthy stuff, though. sounds like a weird recipe. do you taste the whiskey at all?
yenta – that’s for sure. if you make enough of any dough you need to be mafrish challah – even cookies.December 22, 2008 5:31 am at 5:31 am #836643
I did not have my 3 other donuts because I don’t want to be sick all Chanukah.
I’ll try again tomorrow.December 22, 2008 5:39 am at 5:39 am #836644
how you feeling, mod?December 22, 2008 5:47 am at 5:47 am #836645
84 posts and this thread is only four hours old. man, we’re crazy.December 22, 2008 5:54 am at 5:54 am #836646Esther1Member
anon- Here’s my first guess although I have a sneaking suspicion that it’s not the correct answer: the spies in the times of Yehoshua?December 22, 2008 6:12 am at 6:12 am #836647kapustaParticipant
not at all! they came out great-like real sufganiyot except they were so much less oily -even when they finished cooking and i left it to drain practically no oil drained out-thats just to prove to you that it worked and as a side alcohol evaporates during cooking…December 22, 2008 7:06 am at 7:06 am #836648PMMember
brooklyn19 “really? i thought one of the criteria for something to be hamotzi is that it’s afuy – baked. i think when something is fried it’s automatically mezonos.”
You are right, that is the Halacha. However, Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 168:13 brings a machlokes that Rabbeinu Tam holds anything that is a thick dough and not a thin batter is hamotzi even boiled or fried. Shulchan Aruch concludes that one who has Yiras Shomayim will satisfy both opinions by only eating it during a meal. Our doughnuts are even more problematic, since they are eaten as a desert they would not be included in the hamotzi and it would not even help to make hamotzi first. Therefore, other more creative solutions are required. While this is only a chumra, it is one endorsed by the Shulchan Aruch.December 22, 2008 2:25 pm at 2:25 pm #836649
So my stomach is a bit better in the morning now, we’ll see what’s on the menu tonight.
Mmmmmmm……. Yum!December 22, 2008 5:52 pm at 5:52 pm #836650
I wasn’t on last night so I didn’t see thsi thread. wow, so many posts in one short evening. this place is really off the wall, lol.
you realize you have to have 11 donuts tonight to be mashlim the 3 you missed last night, right?
I’ll join the chorus of well wishers. Hatzlocho in finding the right guy real soon, whether its the one tonight or someone else.
And don’t forget there are dozens of people waiting here breathlessly to hear how it went, lol.December 22, 2008 5:57 pm at 5:57 pm #836651YW Moderator-72Participant
charlie brown. We need a note from a responsible adult in your house to explain your absence last night.December 22, 2008 6:02 pm at 6:02 pm #836652
You really think I live in a home with responsible adults? j/k. I told you in the other thread about the bourbon I had last night instead of latkes cuz I confused purim with chanuka. I’ll have Mrs. Brown sign a note that I was too drunk to attend the sessions here.December 22, 2008 6:06 pm at 6:06 pm #836653myshadowMember
brooklyn, hatzlocha!December 22, 2008 6:15 pm at 6:15 pm #836654squeakParticipant
May I suggest that mini-donuts can be used to fill the aforementioned chiyuv. <Name of a Lakewood store that sells donuts deleted> sells mini donuts. 11 should be no problem. Hatzlocho!December 22, 2008 6:27 pm at 6:27 pm #836655
Mrs. Brown… that would be Lucy, wouldn’t it?December 22, 2008 6:36 pm at 6:36 pm #836656
uh oh. when charlie brown needs something from Lucy it never ends well for him.December 22, 2008 6:44 pm at 6:44 pm #836657KeepinEntertainedMember

Why would it be Lucy? I would expect that she is red haired. Am I right, Charlie?December 22, 2008 6:58 pm at 6:58 pm #836659
guess what? i ate so much oil today… wow i never felt so disgusting in my life. there was a who tin of tiny bite-sized ones at work and guess what we did?December 22, 2008 6:58 pm at 6:58 pm #836660
squeak, lol, I forgot about the red haired girl. You would be correct then.December 22, 2008 7:07 pm at 7:07 pm #836661
what’s her name? peppermint patty? (oh and BTW i think Marcie’s the one who likes Charlie Brown – not Lucy!)December 22, 2008 7:08 pm at 7:08 pm #836662
if they’re tiny and bite sized they don’t really contain any oil, fat, calories etc. do they? Please tell me they don’t!December 22, 2008 7:19 pm at 7:19 pm #836663
yeah right. wishful thinking. what WAS i thinking??? (lol i wasn’t… my skirt better fit tonight…)December 22, 2008 7:25 pm at 7:25 pm #836664myshadowMember
