Shabbos Menu: P’ Vayeira (Nov 7-8)


First early Shabbos of the year!  I’m full of mixed emotions.  Nervous to have to sign off of work early and get everything done in time… and also excited to spend a nice Shabbos with my family.

It’s been a while since we all had Friday night dinner together.  Usually my kids are soooooo starving that they have to eat dinner before kiddush.  Hey, I totally understand it, but I’m really looking forward to having a nice family dinner all together.  DH even bought the boys smiley face cupcakes.

So, after a busy week, no energy to cook and a super short Friday, here’s what we’re having:

Friday night:

  • Turkey legs and sweet potatoes
  • Kugel (store-bought)

Shabbos Lunch:

  • Gefilte fish
  • Schnitzel
  • Roasted carrots
  • 5-minute couscous

Wow, after typing up that menu I decided that I’m really in the mood for homemade cranberry sauce.  I doubt I’ll have time to shop for fresh cranberries and make it, but I guess I should keep it in mind.  After all, it does freeze well!

Have a good (early) Shabbos!

Until next time,
