    Ok, I say that since there is always leftover yontiff food anyway, and it tastes better fresh, I am allowed to eat as much as I want on erev yontiff.

    My wife says (or would say, depending on if I’m married), that I can’t eat it until she serves it.

    She agreed that if the CR says I’m right, she will let me.

    Please vote for me. In exchange I agree to not excoriate you like I just did to amused here: http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/can-someone-please-explain#post-311614

    On the other hand… Did you forget the 2 rules of marriage?

    Rule #1- Wife is always right

    Rule #2- When she is wrong see Rule #1.

    What is “yontiff”?

    A Yiddish abbreviation of the Hebrew “Yom Tov”.

    Much like “Shabbes” is Yiddish for “Shabbos”

    Shalom bayis overrides leftover food. If your wife gets upset by it, then don’t do it!

    The husband is the King in the house. The Queen is subject to the King’s wishes and commands. Do what pleases you most.

    That makes no sense. You can always get remarried, but you can’t make leftovers into fresh food.

    Eat now. That way, if she does run short (like that would EVER happen in a Jewish home) she’ll know what was a hit.

    Don’t worry about running short, She can cook more food on Yom Tov and it will be fresher.

    Did you bring your Karbon Chagiga yet?

    What you meant was:

    She agreed (or would have agreed, depending on if I’m married), that if the CT says I’m right, she will let me.

    I stand in solidarity with you (or would stand in solidarity with you depending on if you were married) and vote (or would vote depending on if you were married-) ‘eat’.

    If you like food before it is served, work in the kitchen.

    Definintely fress away. Just make sure you’re not too full for the meal. Though as Popa bar Abba, you probably won’t be.

    PBA I vote for you because that’s how I feel when my mother or sister makes something and I want it straight out of the oven. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to give you mussar, but think about how hard it was for your wife to be working in the kitchen to make your favorite foods. The least you could do is listen to her and not eat the food. It’s hard, I know(I have experience, trust me) but I have faith in you!!!!

    I think that if it upsets your wife, you should not eat until she serves it. You may be making her anxious because she may feel that she won’t have enough food. Maybe you can compromise and she can give you some food to taste??

    Also, the man may be the king of the house, but if the wife is not happy, trust me, no-one will be happy. Try thinking how you would feel if you spent days cooking and your wife wanted to eat before Yom Tov.

    Chag Sameach everyone (from Israel).

    Food prepared for Yomtov should not be eaten before Yomtov. It’s easy for men to say “she’ll cook some more”. What happened with self-control? Don’t they teach these things in Yeshiva nowadays?

    If you’re hungry before Yomtov, make yourself a peanut butter sandwich and get out of the kitchen so you won’t be tempted (unless you’re the one peeling the vegetables of course).

    I vote her, was her hard work. You should have the mentchlichkeit to do as she pleases.

    By now you can tell us what the verdict was, did you eat it?

    in my house we have a rule that we can eat two rows of the potato kugel on friday afternoon. Although there is always leftovers, we cant eat more, because you never know.

    This kugel rule is quiet interesting.

    Is it two rows in the width or in the legnth?

    Funny you should mention the kugel row issue. We make the Erev Shabbos kugel in a Pyrex loaf pan.

    I feel it should be cut side-to-side in a rectangle.

    My wife say it needs to be cut in a square, just like its done in shul.

    I say, its only cut into a square in shul, because the pan is 11 x 17, so you cannot make a reasonable square in a commercial setting.

    She says, no, kugel must be square, regardless of the pan size.

    I tried to argue that a square leaves more exposed to dry up, but from a surface perspective, the cut area is the same in a square as it is in a rectangle (on a loaf pan). So that argument went nowhere.

    So…Who is right?

    I think you should cut it into rectangles and then eat each piece down to a square.

    bpt- I am rolling from your post. Love it! did you give in? you should tell her that whoever cuts the kugel gets to choose….then if she cuts it into a rectangle for you, you can be sure she is an eishes chayil! lol

    popa- what ended up happening?

    its funny cause when my mother grew up there was a rule in her house that they are not allowed to taste any food until it came time for the meal. it bothered her so much that she said in her home we can eat everything and anything before yom tov!

    #818243

    adorable,

    it seems that poppa’s wife (if she exists) is your grandmother.

    will you call him uncle poppa?

    (if poppa’s wife doesn’t exist then you grandmother doesn’t exist either which would mean that you too don’t exist. I hope your chosson will be able to deal with that).

    Ask her to officially make extra for you to eat erev yom tov.

    I’d get pretty peeved if my husband ate my food before the chag. Although I pretty much always cook too much and we wind up with leftovers, I wouldn’t appreciate the anxiety it would cause me to worry that we wouldn’t have enough! Also, many dishes take hours to make, so expecting her to just “make more” is just silly. No one wants more work after working!

    @charlie:

    “Uncle Poppa” is not a valid name outside of various Southeastern states.

    #818246

    Poppa: “That makes no sense. You can always get remarried, but you can’t make leftovers into fresh food.”

    You have obviously never worked in a restaurant
