It was really hot today and there was tons of traffic between Teverya and Haifa. We were late for my daughter's dance class. I had gotten slightly dehydrated. I ran into the supermarket WITHOUT MY LIST. What a recipe for disaster!
I ended up spending about 250 NIS more than I had planned. Those sales and impulse purchases really added up. I have to remind myself to never go shopping without a list again!
So, we're having a few guests for Shabbat. Does that mean I needed to buy 4 (yes, you read that right, 4) bags of pretzels? I hadn't planned to buy any. I had planned to pop a bunch of popcorn in the air popper...
But I digress. I'm here to plan my Shabbat menu...
Here's what we're having this Shabbat:
Vegetarian "liver" (I make one using peas, green beans, and nuts, among other ingredients.)
Chick pea and Tomato Salad with fresh Basil
Vegetable soup with noodles (Friday night)
Mushroom Barley Stew (Lunch)
Corn-flake crumb chicken
Oven Roasted Cauliflower
Oven Roasted Zucchini
Make your own salad (we have baby spinach (total impulse purchase!), cucumbers, tomatoes, red and yellow peppers, nuts, cinnamon-honey'd oranges, and whatever else I discover while chopping up veggies!)
Pan-fried tofu for my favorite 12 yr old vegetarian
Hopefully I will get around to making a dessert. If not, we'll have some fresh fruit.
Shabbat Shalom! Let me know what you're making for Shabbat.
