Yesterday morning Ducky went on a walk. As he walked by the local Jewish community center, he saw a group of humans standing around a bonfire. He was curious so he waddled over to see what was going on. As he peeked through the crowd, he was shocked by what he saw! They were burning bread and crackers! “WHY?” Ducky thought. Then Ducky noticed a wise old owl near by. He walked over and asked what was going on.

The owl replied “It’s the burning of the Chametz.”

“What is that?” Ducky asked even more confused.

“During Pesach, or Passover as you know it, the Jewish people burn anything leaven and do not eat bread or other leaven foods for a whole week in remembrance of their escape from Egypt.” said the owl.

“What? No bread? No pita? Not cake? No cookies? No nothing?” Ducky asked. “When does this start?”

“Tonight.”

Before the owl could say “Chag Sameach (Happy Holiday)”, Ducky ran past the bonfire, grabbed a bag of pita and headed home. He had some eating to do before Pesach started!

"Yummy... Hummus...Pita...Pita...Hummus..."

“Yummy… Hummus…Pita…Pita…Hummus…”

Ducky has been enjoying the food in Israel. He has been trying new things every day, but Pembleton has been a little less adventurous. Today, Pembleton bumped into Ducky during lunchtime. Ducky was holding a huge stuff sandwich with little balls, cabbage, tomatoes, and onions inside.

“What’s that Ducky? It looks tasty.”

“Yumm, Yumm, It’s falafel! Do you want some?”

“Umm, I don’t know, what’s falafel?”

“Fried goodness. It’s made of chickpeas that are mashed, seasoned and fried. Then it is stuffed into a yummy pita with hummas and veggies.”

“What’s hummas?”

“Stop asking questions, just eat!” Ducky shouted as he passed Pembleton his enormous sandwich.

After taking a small bite, Pembleton, took another, and another. “Wow, that’s pretty tasty. I like it.”

“Good, now get your own!”

Eating Falafel

“Ducky, what’s that? It looks tasty.”

The other night, the Humans went to an Indian restaurant for dinner.  They brought the boys back some Kheer (Indian rice pudding). The rice pudding was the best rice pudding Ducky had ever tasted. He wanted more.  He thought about how he could find the perfect rice pudding.  After a few minutes, he had a plan. He would go to India, and find a Kheer Guru. But first, he had to convinced Pembleton to drop him and the lil’ guys off in India.

Shortly after they arrived in India, they found a baby elephant who knew a Kheer Guru. The guru lived on the other side of the jungle. The baby elephant, with permission from his mom, offered to give Ducky and the lil’ guys a ride, but only if he could have some pudding too.

Once they got to the other side of the jungle, they were at the Kheer Guru’s house. They knocked on the door. When the Guru answered, they were greeted with the sweet smell of amazing rice pudding. The Guru let them in and taught them all the secrets to making the perfect rice pudding. The best part was eating bowls and bowls of pudding.

“Rice pudding, here we come!”

Every day the Lambs, work hard to make lunch for Ducky, Pembleton, and the rest of the gang. But 7 minutes before lunch, Ducky ordered 10 PB&J sandwiches with 4 sides of potato salad all for himself, even though he knew Monday is eggplant parmigiana day. That was the straw that broke the camel’s back. The lambs stomped out of the kitchen declaring a strike.

Approximately 8 minutes later and one minute passed lunch time, a starving Ducky apologized and they all ate eggplant parmigiana together.

We have had enough!
