Shabbos Menu: P’ Metzora (Apr 4-5)


I cannot believe that Pesach is almost here!  Usually people get all uptight, but I’m excited to be on vacation.  No work for 8 whole days.  I have no idea what we’ll be doing for Chol Hamoed yet, but I’m still excited.  I’ve been so busy at work that I can’t even seem to find the time to plan a few simple day trips.  What’s a gal to do?

This Shabbos we’re so lucky to have my sister over.  I already warned her about my simple menu and she’s on board anyway.  Guess she can’t wait to spend some quality time with her nephews.

Here’s what we’re having:

Friday night:

  • Chicken soup (freezer) with matza balls
  • Stuffed cabbage (sent from Mom)
  • Oven baked rice
  • Sweet potatoes

Shabbos lunch:

  • Gefilte fish (maybe- could only find the KLP kind)
  • Cholent
  • Kishka
  • Broccoli kugel
  • Bourekas (store-bought)

I consider this a pretty special menu.  On it are things I don’t usually make, but somehow found the energy for on Thursday night.

Wow, as I’m typing this post I am yearning for Shabbos to come already!  You know that peace of mind you have the second after you light Shabbos candles?  That’s what I am most looking forward to!

Until next time,

    Big big shkoiach for taking vacation over Chol Hamoed. I’ve learned about it, and you are really supposed to do that and it makes Hashem very happy. Enjoy your Pesach!

    Hope Shabbos was nice and peaceful too.
