Everyone has been complaining about the 9 Days being upon us! I mean, seriously, does everyone besides us eat meat and chicken all week long?
We basically only eat chicken on Shabbat, and all week we eat dairy and vegetarian. So the 9 days doesn't actually seem any different (food-wise) to me than usual.
What's different right now is that I *MUST* find motivation to pack. And am trying hard not to shop much, and I don't want to cook complicated foods - that would just monopolize my time and limit my ability to pack (I hate packing, though, so it's tempting).
So here is my low-energy menu for the week - this is just a "skeleton" plan, I'll probably have to add things to most meals.
Lunch: Sandwiches, cut veggies
Supper: Pasta with tomato sauce, cottage cheese, watermelon
Lunch: Pancakes (eggless), cut veggies, yogurt with fruit
Supper: Pizza (homemade), baked "french fries", carrot sticks
Lunch: Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, tomatoes and cucumbers
Supper: Veggie hot dogs (yes, bought some Tivol hot dogs on sale),
Lunch: probably pancakes again
Supper: Cottage Cheese and spinach pancakes, green lentils with potatoes and veggies
Lunch: sandwiches, cut veggies
Supper: Pasta with alfredo sauce,
