It's the end of the week, again! Can't believe it? You are not alone, neither can I! It's crazy how the days just keep slipping past!
And winter has crept up on us, too. Some people are even saying it will snow here on Friday night. Honestly, I don't mind if it snows on a Friday night -- As long as we don't lose power! (Because if the power goes out, I think my cholent will be ruined...)
So keeping in mind the cold we're looking at, we want to make sure to have a warm, enjoyable Shabbat. Friday night we're having some friends join us. Here's the plan:
Homemade Whole Spelt and Oat Bran Challot
Vegetarian Liver, Homemade Chumus, Cut-Veggie Platter, Pickles and Olives
Other salads if I get to them
Oven Fried Chicken
Black-Eyed Peas (there's been a bag in my pantry for a really long time now!)
For lunch, I'm putting up a Black Bean Cholent and we'll have whatever is left from Friday night.
I've got some bananas waiting to be used, so I'll make banana-coconut chocolate chip cake and popcorn for snacking!
