Shabbos Menu: P’ Vaera (Jan 16-17)


Next week is yeshiva winter vacation.  I’ve already heard from DS2 that he has 2 friends going on airplanes.  We’ll try to plan some fun day trips, but in this family- there will be no airplane involved.  Not this year.

I don’t feel pressured to keep up with what others are doing for vacation, but I do want my kids to go back to school feeling that they had a lot of fun.  We’ll take them to museums and to visit family.  I think that at their young ages they will enjoy it.  We’ll see what happens when they get older.

To kick-off the vacation, DH is planning (and cooking!) the entire Shabbos menu.

Here’s what we’re having:

Friday night:

  • Chicken soup with matza balls
  • Meatballs
  • Rice
  • Carrot kugel

Shabbos lunch:

  • Gefilte fish
  • Schnitzel
  • Potato kugel
  • Homemade Chummus

Have a good Shabbos!

What do you do in order to avoid feeling the pressure of keeping up with what everyone else is doing for vacation?

Until next time,
