Thursday, December 1, 2011

I've been doing well with the pantry challenge so far - we bought milk (as predicted), bananas (do your kids eat bananas like mine do?), and fresh yeast. And we're keeping a list of all those things we discovered we're out of and we've been making do and improvising!

Tonight we are having another hearty soup! I love serving soup. While cooking, it warms up the kitchen, and while we're eating it, no one is asking me to turn on the heater! (They may ask right before and right after, but not while they are actually eating it!) And if it's a thick soup, it fills everyone up and I can cook fewer dishes and wash fewer dishes, too. Win-win!

So here's the menu:

Homemade dinner rolls

Lentil soup with rice (I'm posting the recipe and pics soon!)


Carrots, cucumbers, green peppers

What's on your table tonight?

  1. I'm with you on the soup! ...Especially the ones that don't require sauteing, just dumping everything in the pot.

    Avocados were on sale at Rami Levi last week, and we've been having them in our salads every night this week. Tonight I think we'll have avocado pita melts to finish off a couple more, and then it's guacamole with the challah on Shabbos! I have seriously never eaten so many avocados in my life.

  3. my standard vegetable soup? it's really good - you can add noodles if you want vegetable-noodle soup! find it here: http://kosherfrugalmenus.blogspot.com/2011/01/shabbat-menu.html (sorry, there aren't any pictures. the instructions are at the bottom of the post)

  4. OK - I had already decided on a veggie soup - I only have carrots, potatos, onions and garlic - and I added tomato paste. Do I throw the noodles in uncooked at the end, or cook them separately?

  5. I cook them separately, and drain off the starchy water. but i know people who cook them right in the soup. it probably doesn't make much difference...

  6. When does the pantry challenge end? I want you to buy more chumus! (And please make sure it's not mizrachi chumus.)
