Igor's cholent.

After a day out in the cold, it sure was nice to come home to a warm bowl of food waiting on us. Cholent is apparently "a traditional Jewish stew simmered overnight, for 12 hours or more, and eaten for lunch on the Sabbath ... developed over the centuries to conform with Jewish religious laws that prohibit cooking on the Sabbath." The original recipe I found yields 30 servings, so I tenthed this for us, which luckily wasn't difficult. It was a bit bizarre waking up to the smell of dinner cooking, but it does relieve the stress many people have with slow cooking, putting everything together in the morning while they're hurrying to get ready.

Chris liked it, and I found it warm and filling, and didn't turn it down, but there was just something ... not quite right. I can't explain it, and it wasn't so glaring that I couldn't eat it or anything like that. Just something niggling at me. Could have just been my tastebuds that night, not sure. But, not impressed, so not repeating. Ah, well.
