We've been sick, as well as busy, as well as sweltering hot.
I'm trying to work out a menu that will not require any time over a hot stove (although I'm willing to run the oven. The architect who designed this house put a little alcove off the kitchen where the oven is, so I can shut that part off from the rest of the house, open up the window in there and the heat doesn't come into where we are!)
Here's the plan:
Salatim (vegetarian liver, chumous, various other salads)
Chicken in ? sauce
Southwestern style Pasta salad (to be served at lunch) - I'll cook ONE pot of pasta on the stove, at night, Thurs night.
Make-your-own-salad (we have lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, red peppers)
Rice with mushrooms (oven baked) (for Friday night)
Oven-Roasted Butternut Squash (found a sale - 2.99 NIS/kilo - much lower than what I usually see)
Oven-roasted Kishuim with olive oil, salt and pepper (also, 2.99 NIS/kilo sale)
Carrot Kugel from freezer
Popsicles, watermelon, and other fruit for dessert
Gazpacho and whatever I pull together for seudah shlishit
Wish me luck getting it all done!
Shabbat Shalom! Feel free to share your menus and deals...
