Wow, what a week. I am EXHAUSTED. And exhilarated. This was our first post-aliyah Yom Ha'atzmaut (well, at least for the rest of the family, I DID have a few of those after the time I made aliyah almost 20 yrs ago...). It's so great to be able to celebrate Israel's independence here in Israel!
But now it's back to regular life. Homeschooling is obviously never QUITE ordinary - there are so many things that happen on the spur of the moment (think science experiments and outside-of-the-box art projects all over my kitchen) - but still, we'll say tomorrow will be an ordinary Wednesday... (although that's Art Day, so, there will be mess...)
I feel like I need to plan tomorrow night's supper right now, or we'll end up eating cereal.
On the way to the table:
Black Bean, Tomato, and Lentil Soup (don't forget to soak the black beans overnight first! And if you add ginger to the pot of soup, it helps with the digestive issues beans sometimes cause) - this is going in the crock pot - chopped onion, diced garlic, diced celery, 1/2 c. black beans, 1/2 c. lentils, 5-6 chopped tomatoes, soup stock, ginger, salt, and pepper)
Crustless Broccoli Quiche (I have a bag of broccoli in my freezer from the time I found them on a buy 2 get one free sale)
Roasted Tomatoes, Peppers, and Mushrooms (just toss them with olive oil and roast them in the oven) - using the produce that's hanging out in my fridge - this will be heavy on the tomatoes this time since I bought a ton of tomatoes at 45 agurot/kilo...
Couscous (whole wheat of course) - what could be easier than boiling some water, adding some couscous and seasonings, cover and turn off the flame. let stand for about 5 min...?
Melon - I am so tempted by the peaches and nectarines and all those summer fruits (I keep eyeing those starfruits) coming in, but at 12 NIS/kilo and up (grapes are 30!), I opted for the melon that was 2.89/kilo.
