    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?

    #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.

    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.

    brooklyn19,

    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).

    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.

    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.

    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!!!

    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!

    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.

    #836643

    I did not have my 3 other donuts because I don’t want to be sick all Chanukah.

    I’ll try again tomorrow.

    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?

    brooklyn-

    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…

    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.

    So my stomach is a bit better in the morning now, we’ll see what’s on the menu tonight.

    Mmmmmmm……. Yum!

    #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.

    mod99,

    you realize you have to have 11 donuts tonight to be mashlim the 3 you missed last night, right?

    brooklyn,

    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.

    charlie brown. We need a note from a responsible adult in your house to explain your absence last night.

    #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.

    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!

    #836662

    brooklyn,

    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!
