Shabbat Menu

I'm a little behind in my Shabbat menu planning. It's already 9:45 a.m. on Friday... and I was still planning to do a run to my local Mega (10% off today), and all the kids will be hanging out with me - so I need to keep them occupied AND get them to help get ready for Shabbat!

So here is the plan for Shabbat food:

Challot from the freezer
Fruit soup (using some of those cheap summer fruits I'll pick up at mega today - peaches and plums for 5/kg before the discount)
Baked "fried" chicken
Apple crisp
Roasted Ratatouille (chop up kishuim/summer squash, onions, eggplants, tomatoes, garlic, peppers - if I  have any left... Toss with olive oil, roast in the oven till browned. so yummy, and can also be served as a cold salad)
Make-Your-Own-Salad (although I think that will be heavily weighted toward cucumbers and tomatoes. Not sure which other vegetables I have in the house, and I wasn't planning to buy much at Mega...)

That's for Friday night and Shabbat Lunch.

Seudah Shlishit will be PB&J sandwiches, and fresh fruits and vegetables. Is my standard seudah shlishit too boring?

I'm also planning to throw together a chocolate cake and I will take a banana bread out of the freezer for breakfast...


  1. No fish? Even tuna for 3rd meal?
    Many have the minhag of eating fish at every meal or at least a type of fish for 3rd meal. One friend, the hubby buys a different type of fish each week for 3rd meal (they don't eat any fish at the other meals) so lox or herring or tuna or fish fillets they prepare before Shabbat.
    But more importantly, it is what works best for your family and you.

    1. we don't eat much fish. I find good fish too expensive to buy and i have so many questions about farmed fish anyway... cheap fish is pumped full of chemicals. tuna has a mercury contamination problem and is likely canned in BPA-lined cans, so... no, no fish.
