andreaaskowitz, I just love this story. I was raised a Christian but ended up in a life partnership with a Jewish man.
I don’t have anything as beautiful as the Marys to relate, but over the years, I did learn to cook a nice brisket and whip up delicious chopped chicken liver.
My matzoh balls need work, though! Lenny always complained they weren’t fluffy enough.
I probably needed Mary in the kitchen!
Thanks for a lovely story.
