This week we managed to get lots of affordable fruit. So don't be surprised that my menu highlights fruit! Perfect for summertime, right?
We'll be having:
Melon and Peach Soup (served and cold) - kind of winging this one. Seems like melons and peaches in the food processor with a bit of lemon juice, garnished with mint?
Apple kugel (apples are 4.50/kg at mega on Friday - for info, see this) (making lots of these for the freezer)
Slice 6 apples thinly (easiest in a food processor), pack them into your favorite kugel pan. Combine 1 c. flour, 1/2 c. oil, 1/2 c. sugar, and 3 eggs. Pour this mixture over the apples, and bake, till golden at about 190 C. I have tried making this with flaxseed in place of the eggs, but it didn't come out right! I don't know. maybe I will try again, as I am almost out of eggs...
Vegetable-noodle kugel (making extra for the freezer)
Beets (cooked, sliced. served perfectly plain as my children prefer)
Chicken marinated in Honey-ginger-soy sauce (wish I had a grill for cooking this. THAT would be oh.so.good. But we'll just make do with the oven!)
Make your own salad: options will include tomatoes, cucumbers, roasted peppers, chick peas, avocado...
Watermelon and chocolate chip cake for dessert
Seudah shlishit will be PB&J, vegetable sticks (cucumbers, carrots, celery) with hummus to dip, and fruit! And I'll try to remember to pop some popcorn for when certain people get the munchies...
