Shabbat menu planning

Phew! It's been a busy week!

Hope everyone enjoyed their Chanukah! Ours was very nice, full of light and songs and games, but we didn't do presents this year. And the kids didn't even ASK about presents! I was thoroughly amazed, but I think that may be what happens when everyone is satisfied with what we have. I'm really hoping this stage lasts awhile, because it is so much more pleasant than the "I wants"...

This week, a bunch of us are having a potluck lunch at the shul - so much fun, and always great to share the work among a bunch of people!

Here's my plan:

Challot from the freezer
Muffins for breakfast from the freezer

Friday night:

Chinese mushroom soup (haven't made this soup in a while, but I've been missing it. I'll try to post the recipe - I took my inspiration from the one in The New Enchanted Broccoli Forest)
Oven fried chicken
Pan Fried Tofu for the vegetarian
Potato Kugel
Apple crisp
Roasted Kishuim

For lunch at shul I'm bringing:

Potato Kugel
Spicy Sweet Potatoes

I don't think I am baking anything for dessert, we have plenty of fruit though if we need a dessert Friday night!

On these short Shabbatot, we don't end up having a formal seudah shlishit, but we usually have some sort of snack. I guess we'll wing it. 

What will you be doing for Shabbat?


  1. I hope you will post the recipe for the Chinese mushroom soup. It sounds delicious!

    1. I plan to write it up and take pictures as I make it!!
