It's been a fun pantry challenge week. We actually had TONS of fresh veggies in the house (ok, not literally tons, but you know what I mean) because I bought a lot at the end of last week and on Tuesday I went to the shuk at closing time and got some good deals.
I've taken chicken out of my freezer to defrost, and here's the menu for Shabbat:
Whole Wheat and Oat Bran Challot
Split Pea Soup (already made, phew!)
Honey-ginger baked chicken
(Honey-ginger baked tofu)
Steamed Broccoli Florets
Roasted Vegetables: Cauliflower, Kishuim, Red and Yellow Pepper (roasted seperately)
Make-your-own-salad (we have lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, avocado, carrots, red and yellow peppers, pickles
Black Bean Cholent
For Snacks, Dessert. and Seudah 3:
Banana Cake from the freezer
Egg Salad (for the egg eaters)
Popcorn (Caramel popcorn if I don't run out of time!)
Fruit - we have clementines, persimmons, and some pineapple
Chocolate Babka from the freezer - we must have cake, my daughter is finishing up masechet brachot (mishnayot) so we need to celebrate!
What are you making for Shabbat?
