It's Rosh Chodesh Adar, so it is time to work on using up the chametz in our house before we start the Pesach shopping! Today I started looking through my freezer and discovered that there are enough side dishes in there for this Shabbat, plus perhaps one more. Good thing, because I am tired and don't feel like being creative in the kitchen!
So for Shabbat this week, we have:
Vegetable soup (my usual, double batch, making that fresh)
Chicken in sweet and sour apricot sauce - just mix up apricot jelly, vinegar, some extra water if needed to thin it down, garlic, ginger, ground pepper... pour it over chicken, allow to sit for about an hour (in the fridge), then bake till done!
Side dishes from the freezer
Vegetable lo-mein from the freezer
Cholent (vegetarian - using my new go-to recipe! Must thank my friend Batzion for introducing me to smoked paprika and changing my cholent recipe forever, for the better!!)
Brownies or chocolate cake, haven't decided which
Breakfast bread from the freezer
Homemade Chumus that I made the other day and must get used up
Avocados, tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers - make your own salad...
Challot from the freezer
Hopefully, that's it.
What are you making?
