We're having some sleep-over guests this Shabbat (would you believe all three of my husband's cousins (yes, he has a small family, what can I say?) have daughters who are spending a year in Israel this year, and they are all coming here for Shabbat. I'm really looking forward to it. We haven't had much of an opportunity to build a relationship with them, having never really lived near them, so this will give us a chance to get to know them and feel more connected!
Anyhow, so it's time to plan my Shabbat menu. I just took inventory, and now I know what I have to work with... We have plenty of carrots and potatoes and apples. We got avocados in the 5 shekel range and got chicken on sale too
So here's what I think I'm making:
Chinese-style vegetable soup
Breaded Chicken (baked)
Salad (probably just tomatoes, cucumbers, avocados, and peppers)
Roasted Red Potatoes (can be turned into potato salad for lunch, if I feel like it)
Roasted Carrots (last time I made these, there were none left. I didn't even get one!)
Chocolate Chip Squares
and Fresh Challah!
Really hoping that is enough...
