Shabbat Menu planning

It is supposed to be so hot this Shabbat, so please be careful, everyone. Drink a lot, and put on the A/C if you can!

Here's my plan for this hot Shabbat!

Fruit Salad
Baked "Fried" chicken? or maybe some other kind, depends on my mood tonight when I cook
Vegetable Noodle Kugel (it was a hit)
Lentil Salad with sauteed onions and peppers
Carrot Kugel (my 4 yr old went nuts when I skipped it one week!)
Fresh, cut vegetables - I have celery, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes
Rice with mushrooms and onions

Also making banana muffins and chocolate chip cake

Seudah Shlishit will be sandwiches and fruit and vegetables... maybe popsicles?


  1. I love reading your Shabat menus. Could I ask you to indicate wich dishes are for Friday night and which for Shabbat lunch. I am always trying to work out what goes with what. It would also be good to see what a complete meal looks like. Do you serve a first course as well?Thanks.

    1. I'll see what I can do, but I'm not that organized! :-) I have given up on serving a first course - it just seemed to take a lot of time and then my kids would lose interest in the meal. So when I serve soup, that's the first course for Friday night. Most other things I make, except cholent which is only for lunch, get brought out for both Shabbat night and lunch. My kids have not yet come to an agreement to like the same foods, so there has to be something for each picky eater at each meal!

    2. Thanks. I agree about the starter - it just ruins the meal for the kids. Good idea to just bring it all out twice - why not?

  2. Recipe for lentil salad please!

  3. do you make a double batch of carrot kugel, so you can freeze it for the following week?

    1. Always. sometimes a triple batch...
      This way there is always carrot kugel around, especially because some weeks that is all my 4 yr old will eat. seriously, it has become breakfast, lunch, and supper for her on particularly picky days!
