Shabbat Menu!

I am so proud of myself. I did most of my Shabbat cooking on Thursday night, so we could go on a tiyul today. That is the plan for this year - tiyul every Friday. Do you think we'll manage?

(Real life friends - if you can make it, you can always join us! Just call me Thursday night and we'll make our plans!)

So this week's menu:

Homemade whole wheat flaxseed challot (I made 4 for this week, and 3 for the freezer)


Curried Lentils

Apple Kugel (get those apples while you can find them cheap! I buy whichever apples are in the 5 shekel range and bake with them!)

Sweet potato, avocado and fig salad. It may sound a bit unlikely, but really yummy on a bed of lettuce (sweet potatoes - organic! - were 5 shekel/kg! and we foraged the figs today, and I splurged a bit on 9 shekel/kg avocado. at least the price came down a bit. 2 weeks ago it was more than double that!)

Make your own salad (we have cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots, and avocado)

Black bean cholent for lunch

Fruit for dessert

Molasses cookies

Shabbat Shalom!


  1. I'm a bit confused now - sometimes you have chicken but this week seems to be vegetarian, unless the chollent also has meat in it. What's the deal? It all lools very healthy. Shabbat Shalom.

    1. woops. forgot. i made some chicken breasts that my hubby picked up on sale - we had breaded chicken "fingers". they were good! I actually remembered to take them out of the oven on time so they didn't get dried out!
