Well, yesterday I broke from my normal blog posts, and I just want to thank all of you for 1)bearing with me, and 2)reading my story and sending all that love and support my way!
You are awesome!
For now, I'll be returning to my usual topic - menus and trying to figure out how to save money in this country with a super high cost of living. But it was such a great experience to write a little more "creatively", maybe I should do some of that more often...
So - a couple things about saving money - did you stock up on lots of produce this week for less than 2 NIS/kg? I did! We've got cabbage, potatoes, carrots, eggplants, and red peppers galore! All of these were 1.89 - 1.99 NIS/kg. I also used the coupon for Mega's FB fans and got a bag of frozen sliced mushrooms for 5 NIS! And while I was there, I found Kleenex(!) tissues on sale - a 3 pack for 6 NIS! I stocked up because this is cold season... and my hubby found shkidei marak for 5 NIS/bag at Kim'at Chinam, and since this is soup season... I think we did OK!
Now for a Shabbat menu:
Vegetable soup (with lots of carrots!)
Oven "Fried" Chicken (from the freezer)
Tofu something or other... for the vegetarian. Maybe marinated and baked in a BBQ sauce?
Roast Veggies - (using those peppers and eggplants!)
Stew in the Crock Pot for lunch (potatoes, onions, garlic, barley, spices, maybe some chick peas?)
Chocolate Chip Squares
