Shaunie, her mom Dear, and her sister Cori walk into a Jewish grocery store…no, that’s not the set up for a lame joke, it actually happened but it’s just as ridiculous as it sounds.
Shaunie’s kids have conned her into yet another crazy situation: hosting a Shabbat dinner. The O’Neals aren’t Jewish, but that’s not gonna stop Shaunie from getting her babies to eat dinner together. She hits a Jewish grocery store to get the tea on how this dinner is supposed to work. Since she can’t pronounce most of the items on the shelf, let alone identify what they are, she calls on the special forces to help her out: the food counter counter guy. He puts her on to a Shabbat staple, Gefilte fish (Shaunie calls it, “fish in a jar”), but she’s not entirely feeling it. When the store associate starts rattling off all of the kosher foods that could be served, Shaunie decides that she’s got it all figured out and will fry fish instead. Since “Shabbat is whatever you want it be,” at the O’Neal house, it’s gonna be a Shab-black, a.k.a. a cookout at your auntie’s house like any other regular family dinner.
Don’t miss the Shab-black dinner on the next Shaunie’s Home Court on Monday at 10/9c.
