Shabbat Parashat Re'eh , Aug. 26-27

I'm so excited to be having guests (family) from overseas spending Shabbat with us! We have to deal with a whole bunch of food issues this weekend though, including the following allergies:
soy, fish, nuts, dairy
and the following restrictions:
1 baby under 1 yr old who is still learning to eat so doesn't eat eggs and I'm sure a whole host of other foods, but also refuses to eat baby food,
1 vegetarian

Here's my plan:

Red Lentil Soup
Roast chicken (very simple so even the baby can eat it)
Carrot kugel
Grilled Zucchini slices (using my stove top grill pan)
Roast potatoes
Baked Sweet Potatoes (I've been told the baby loves this)
Tofu-something for the vegetarian, haven't figured out yet how I'll prepare it.
Maybe I'll make a cholent for lunch, but it may just be too hot!
Make your own salad with whatever veggies I buy.

Not sure what else... haven't even thought about seudah shlishit...


  1. Very impressed with your ability to work around all of those special diets at the same meal!

    As a vegetarian, I always feel at least a little bad when I tell hosts about my "status." Although I make sure to mention it in advance, it's hard to get past the feeling that I'm putting people out to some extent. least I eat soy, fish, nuts, and dairy. :)

  2. It was a fun challenge and while the food was all super simple, everyone ate. Which was pretty impressive. Kids can be the toughest critics and there were 8 of them around!
    If you ever come visit our town (we are building up a Dati presence in a community up North), we will happily accommodate your dietary restrictions. No biggie! (When I was a vegetarian, I didn't eat fish, so I was even more troublesome!)
    Love your blog, by the way. I added it to my list. Your pictures are beautiful.
