Wednesday, January 4, 2012

Busy day today, and since Wednesdays have gotten EVEN MORE hectic, we have pizza on Wednesday nights (a little splurge).

So here's our lunch menu instead:

Toasted Cheese Sandwiches (on homemade whole wheat bread, made with the Gouda cheese Mega is selling for 37.90/kg)

Red lentil and vegetable skillet with whole wheat cousous (saute onion, green - or whatever color, I used green as it is usually the cheapest kind - pepper, diced red potatoes, chick peas, and foraged mallow (chubeiza) leaves, in olive oil. add red lentils and water to cover plus some, and spice as you like - I used salt, pepper, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, ginger, and cinnamon - and cook, stirring occasionally, adding water as necessary, till the lentils are fully cooked. serve over couscous.)

Fruit - we found apples and persimmons last week for 3 NIS/kilo. lucky us!

Have any busy day tips to share? I'd love to hear all about it!


  1. We like to do a crockpot meal for those crazy days. Today we did chili since I had some frozen ground beef to use, but it can be almost anything. I find it easier to cook in the crockpot when it doesn't have to be overnight and I can add a sauce or throw in something to cook the last hour, too!

    What an inspiring site!

  2. So glad you found my blog, Amital!
    I have been debating the crock pot meal, thanks for reminding me! I just got a new one, and I guess I should try it out. Part of the problem is on Wed. there are 3 shifts of people getting home, spread out over 3 hrs and everyone is STARVING and wants to eat right away, so popping frozen pizza in the oven seems really easy...
