Shabbat is coming! (Here's our menu)

I must confess. I try to write up these menus every week, and then, without fail, I change it. I just don't tell you about it. Usually I get tired and swap something time consuming for something easy, but sometimes I just cook or bake extra... So now you know, these menus are my guides, but they are not set in stone!

So this week, I spontaneously invited some friends to join us for Friday night, pot-luck style. I'm really looking forward to their company, plus a few other guests that will be making their way to our table. Should be lots of fun!

So here's the plan:

Fresh Whole Wheat and Oat Bran Challot for all the meals

Friday night:

Vegetable Soup
Spicy Roast chicken
(something with tofu, not sure what, for the vegetarian)
Oven-Rice with roasted garlic
Potato Kugel
The food our friends are bringing
Salad - lettuce with honey-cinnamon oranges


Black Bean Cholent
Roast Chicken
Tofu (same as Friday night)
Potato Kugel
Roasted Vegetables (whichever ones we have - kishuim, eggplant, peppers, fennel, cauliflower...)
Make your own salad
Fruit (friend is bringing those!)

Seudah shlishit:

Peanut Butter and Jelly
Potato Salad
Egg Salad
Vegetable Sticks

I know this may look like a lot of food at first glance, but really a lot is simple, and much is being made in volume - for both Friday night and Shabbat lunch.

What's going on your table this Shabbat?


  1. So waht are you doing for Shavuot as it comes in straight after Shabbat? And will you do seudat shlishit as well as a Shavuot meal in the evening?

  2. This was last week's menu! I haven't written up this week's Shabbat-Shavuot plan.
    Maybe later...
