Meal planning for this week’s Shabbos took me forever! We aren’t even having any guests! I think the reason it took so long is because I (desperately) need to re-stock my freezer. I see another cooking day on the way… Maybe I’ll take off a day next week, since it’s the end of the year and I have one more personal day to use. But more importantly, my family needs to eat! Our freezer choices have dwindled and I just don’t have time to cook an entire Shabbos.
- Mushroom and barley soup (freezer!)
- Stuffed cabbage
- Butternut squash kugelShabbos Lunch:
- Chicken and wild rice
- Sweet potatoes
- Broccoli kugel
You might be wondering- why am I sharing all this with you? Well, I’m hoping you can commiserate with me, since I feel like I just slopped this menu together. The only recipes I even consider making are super simple. Oh how I wish for homemade challah… I really hate that I don’t have time to make a nice Shabbos for my family and everything is done so last minute.
So, to make myself feel better, I just think to myself, “I can’t possibly be the only one that feels this way!” Misery loves company, doesn’t it?
Until next time,
