Shabbos Menu: Bamidbar (May 10-11)

Wow, I’ve really been feeling the erev Shabbos/ erev Shavuos rush.  I have a bunch of reports due on the second day of Shavuos, which means that I’ve been working my tail off to get them done before then.  That also means I didn’t have a minute to myself all week, so my Shabbos menu plan is basically being made while I’m typing up this post.  I already have the chicken marinating in the fridge (did that last night), but as far as sides go, we’ll see what I come up with:

Friday night:

  • Gefilte fish and salad
  • Jerk Chicken
  • Vegetable kugel (freezer)
  • ?? Not sure what to fill in here… maybe a roasted veggie?
Shabbos Lunch:

I’m trying out a new chicken recipe (the spicy orange chicken).  I just made the marinade, poured it over cut-up chicken and plan on broiling it later today.  Hope it comes out good.

As far as Shavuos menu planning goes, I haven’t done that either.  I have a few ideas in my head, but haven’t put anything on paper.  I don’t feel as much pressure as I do with Shabbos because I know I can always cook something on yom tov if I have to.  Yay for a stocked freezer!

What new recipes have you tried lately?  Anything worth passing on?

Until next time,
