Shabbat menu!

Just 2 and 1/2 weeks left till Pesach!
I can't really wrap my head around that reality, though. We have started making lists of things we need to buy and errands we need to do before the chag. But haven't really done much REAL preparation.

Where do you stand in your Pesach prep?

I'm trying to use up the foods that are in the house before we switch over to Pesach prep, and also not get completely overwhelmed with cooking right now!

Here's the plan:

Homemade Challot (last batch before Pesach. Making enough to have small challot for all the Shabbatot until Pesach)
Vegetable soup with noodles (a favorite around here)
Mushroom-Barley Stew in the crock pot for lunch
Chicken - probably oven-fried
Green Lentils with garlic, onion, fennel, and oregano
Potato Kugel
A side dish from the freezer - not sure what's in there!
Chocolate Cake from the freezer!

Seudah Shlisheet is starting to need more thought, with Shabbat beginning to end late enough that in theory the kids are hungry enough for supper at that time, we'll have to come up with a plan. Lately we've been having lots of cut up fruits and veggies, and some challah with speads...

What about you?


  1. We always used to have what we called Tuna Mush for seuda shilshit. It's basically salad nicoise mixed up in a bowl with either vinaigrette or mayo dressing.

  2. We sometimes have tuna, but I personally do not eat tuna, so it's never at the top of my list!
