A Na Nach story about Kugel, the Shabbos table and the universe

One Shabbos A Na Nach described for his Holy Parents at their Shabbos Kodesh Table the miraculous nature of Na Nach, the 10 songs the 10 letters, how Na Nach makes everything new! The whole world every moment everything always new! HaKadosh Baruch Hu makes everything new always! Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman! Aba joined in and said outloud every letter and vowel clear resonating through the universe like the roar of an Ari Yehuda "Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman!"
HaNaNach's Ima went to the Shabbos Kodesh kitchen, and while it was just the two of them at the Holy Shabbos table, Aba leaned in and said "You know, in order to be able to really see that something is new a person has to be very observant to know what was there before and what has changed, what is different now." Pointing Aba asks"You see the kugel on the plate there?" Leaning in closer, Aba says "There's another piece of kugel. It wasn't there before."

This story always reminds me of the story in Israel Saba about Kugel and Chulent.

Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman.
