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
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...
