Did ya know it was missing? We didn’t. . . which makes the fact that we found it even more interesting. As JL just stated “You’re supposed to find the Afikomen, not the shank bone!”
Here’s the story:
As JL was putting more of the Passover foods away and moving out the non-Passover stuff he found a bag of groceries. Inside he found quite the surprise – none other than Mr. Shank bone himself! So what to do, what to do???? I called my mother and asked her. She first said to just get rid of it (before she knew what we were talking about). Then she said just roast it if it isn’t raunchy when we open it and who cares since nobody eats it.
I guess we’ll see what happens later when we open it. We just don’t want to have to travel to the kosher store again to get one tomorrow. It’s going to be CRAZY since there will be a million people there getting last minute things.
Worse comes to worse, if you have a whole chicken or turkey with the neck, you can use the neck instead.
Well, if we’re being technical here. . . I have a feeling that what we got from the butcher in the first place was a chicken or turkey neck. We just asked them for something to use and based on the size I’m sure it’s not really the shank bone. Once JL opens it up later today we will know whether we can roast whatever it is without any problem. I guess the good thing is it doesn’t stink now thanks to all of the layers they wrapped it in.
