Looking forward to a rainy Shabbat this week, if the forecast is right. We like watching the Kinneret fill up from the our mirpeset!
(I just hope all my laundry that is hanging outside dries before the rain comes...)
How do you stay warm on a rainy Shabbat in a poorly insulated house without a good heating system (it's a rental...)?
I know I have to serve warming foods (and be sure the urn is filled to the max!)...
Here's my Shabbat menu - most of it will be served both at night and for lunch (obvious exceptions being soup/stew):
Pan-Fried Tofu, for my favorite vegetarian
Broccoli & Cauliflower Kugel - fill a casserole dish with chopped broccoli and chopped cauliflower. cover with a mixture of (well-blended) eggs, mayonnaise (yes, sounds weird, but it works), flour, water, and spices (i use salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder). bake for 1 hour at 375 F
Carrot Kugel (from the freezer!)
Chicken - whatever kind I find in the freezer that is waiting to be used!
Mushroom Barley Stew
I'm also planning to make something with chick peas, and something with cabbage (I bought some cabbage for 1.89nis/kilo and now I have to find a good use for it)...
Brownies and Peanut Butter Cookies
Let me know what you're serving!
