Posts Tagged ‘red’

“And Esau said to Jacob, ‘Give me some of this red, red stew, for I am faint;’ he was therefore named Edom.” (Genesis 25:30)

Questions: Why did Esau think that he was about to die? Why do you think he calls the food that Jacob is cooking “red” twice? Why does the Bible then make the point of telling us that it is because of this request of his (or this incident) that he is called “Edom”?

Ideas: Add lentils to your cholent or stew, serve a lentil salad, or mujadara (rice and lentils). You could also serve red things – red peppers, tomatoes, strawberries, red jello, tomato sauce, red meat etc. Or “twin” foods like sandwich cookies, two serving plates of every food you are serving, or give everyone two forks, two plates, two cups etc.
