Every week just seems to fly right past! At least most family members appear to be on the mend, although now my oldest child has caught a cold. I'm hoping it doesn't aggravate HIS asthma...
So it's time to plan a Shabbat menu, you say?
Trying to keep it really simple.
I am figuring it all out, EXCEPT I asked my vegetarian son to go through one of my vegetarian cookbooks and choose a non-tofu dish for him to learn to make, and I will coach him through cooking it for Shabbat...
The rest of the menu is:
Vegetable soup with wild greens
Black bean cholent (for lunch)
Oven-fried chicken and oven-fried shnitzels
Butternut Squash Kugel (using the one butternut squash I have left and the pumpkin that's left)
Salad - tomatoes, cucumbers, red/yellow peppers, and scallions
Apple Crisp (we got lots of apples for free the other day. I ran out of oats for the topping, but I made it this week with wheat bran and there were NO complaints!)
Challot (from the freezer)
Chocolate Cake (from the freezer)
