Shabbat in 2 Hours — Baked Apples

I love cats. I couldn’t resist.



Shabbat in 2 Hours — Baked Apples

I hesitate to call this an actual recipe. However, my friend Malka introduced me to baked apples for Shabbat. It is even faster and easier than my fruit compote, and I bake them while I have everything else in the oven.

Ingredients:

Apples, cut in half, and seeds removed

cinnamon

Instructions:

Cut apples in half and remove the core and any other blemishes. Lightly spray oil the pan and sprinkle cinnamon over the bottom. Add apples, cut side down.

Bake in 350* – 375* oven until done. The house will smell heavenly!


Enjoy!

Just for fun, I thought I would post this.

Many blessings to all for a beautiful shabbat.

Saturday night begins the first night of Channuka and Christmas Eve. Happy holidays everyone!


Love,

Carol and family.

        Gut voch and a freiliche Chanukkah! Baal Shem Tov said that cats have neshomos of Tzaddikim. That’s why it makes you happy to look at them. Dogs, however , have neshomos of rishoyim, so to help those neshomos be elevated, we should wish them Good Shabbos and Good Yom Tov whenever we see a dog on those days. For years I thought it was one of my grandmother’s “bobbe mainses” until I overheard some distinguished Chassidim saying, “Gut Shabbos, dog.”

        That is so interesting! My uncle used to say that the cats in Jerusalem are gilgul neshamas who were unable to travel during their lifetime. I always thought that dogs had a special status because when we left mitzrayim they didn’t bark. I will have to remember to wish all dogs “gut shabbas and gut yom tov.”🐈🐕

        I could never find the source about the cats. But, I also heard that if a cat keeps following you, it is a gilgul neshama of someone who needs forgiveness. So, we should say “I forgive you.” I do not know where that comes from, however.

        This one I haven’t heard, but I would guess the source is the same – Baal Shem Tov teachings.

        Perhaps. I think that it’s all connected. The idea that our souls all need correction.

        Certainly; H-shem, in His kindness allows our neshomos to return again and again, up to 80 times, in order to make corrections. You know about the indentation on our upper lip, right?

        Yes, exactly. At that moment, the neshoma forgets all the previous incarnations and is ready to meet the same challenges and make corrections.
