question a/b koshrut

Does anyone know how we got from not cooking a calf in it's mother's milk to not mixing any fleishik with any dairy?

Similarly, how did we get from no leavened bread to no legumes?

Honest questions- never really understood the progression

1. I'm sure there are many different

explanations and I'm no talmud scholar but because there's usually a paucity of responses here, I'll take a stab at it: The injunction against steeping a calf . . . etc. can be thought of as a metaphor for the actual injunction: Don't Mix Meat and Milk . The legume thing, I think, is because legumes can, like leavening, cause bread to rise.

2. thanks

Best explanation I've heard so far... I keep thinking I must have learned this when I was in school, but couldn't remember.

4. I grew up in a kosher home

but my mother followed what we called the main rule of kashrut: Anything is kosher if it's eaten in a Chinese reataurant"
