I can't believe it's Shavuot already! I love cheese, and cheesecake, and using my great-grandmother's dairy china (I never met my great grandmother, but since my grandparents gave us the china when we got married, it makes me think of them. They were amazing, wonderful, special grandparents. I think of them all the time, and I know they are watching over us.)...
(I just don't love the custom of staying up all night, but that's another story)
Anyhow, I am throwing frugality out the window for the chag. It is, after all, the shortest chag. It's only one day. And cheese is not a frugal food but somehow I've already purchased a LOT of mozzarella, cheddar, feta, and bulgarian cheese. Not to mention gevinah levana, cottage cheese, and more...
I'm planning to make the following foods that my family loves:
Creamy mushroom soup
Broccoli Puff (chopped broccoli, cottage cheese, shredded cheese, eggs, salt, pepper, some flour. all combined and baked together)
Spinach Puff (same idea as above, but with chopped spinach)
Lasagna (with homemade tomato sauce)
Make your own salad (greek salad style)
That sounds like enough, but I might bake something else in case someone around here actually decides to stay up very late learning. And pop some popcorn (I love the air popper!).
