So for all I saved buying produce for 2 shekels/kg this week (see the 2 shekel/kg post - and I've bought more since then), I ended up splurging when I found out I could get organic corn on the cob. I find regular Israeli corn on the cob starchy and unpleasant to eat, but last time we got corn on the cob (last summer) we tried the organic ones. And guess what?
They are sweet. And wonderful.
So when I heard I could get some, I went ahead and spent about 50 shekels on it. That's more than I spent on all the other produce I bought this week from the sug bet bins! (So far I've spent about 32 shekels on sug bet produce this week -- and today I found papaya and REAL dark skinned zucchini in the sug bet stuff!)
I guess I wiped out my savings for the week buying corn.
Anyhow, so my Shabbat menu. It's going to be very heavy on the vegetables, as I have a bunch to use, and almost no grains or beans in the house.
Black Bean Cholent for lunch
Chicken in Honey-Teriyaki marinade
Vegetable lo mein with tofu
Eggplant ? (thinking of making a sweet and spicy sauce using honey and hot peppers as a base)
Spicy Roast Sweet Potatoes
Corn on the Cob
Roasted Kishuim and Zucchini
Roasted Bell Peppers (I have green, yellow, red, and orange) - or maybe I will cook them in the grill pan for a change!
Seudah Shlishit - banana cake, apple crisp, hard boiled eggs, carrot sticks, and more
And now I need to go to sleep, so I can do all of this tomorrow!
What are you having for Shabbat?
