This Week’s Shabbos Menu

It’s nearing the end of the work day, and the hours are inching closer to Shabbat. It’s been a long and difficult week and I’m really looking forward to the compulsory break and connection to something other than work and routine.

Here’s what was cooking in my kitchen last night and what’s going to get guzzled this evening 🙂

  • Challah (perhaps Zaatar & Paprike, and a Sugar Crystals ones)
  • Butternut and Red Lentil Soup
  • Sushi salad (my very first time making this!)
  • Coconut crumbed chicken (don’t know it til you try it!)
  • Green beans
  • Corn tart/kugel
  • Meat pizza (another first, we had extra pastry and meat left over so had a small one for dinner last night. YUM!)
  • Apple cake (my favourite)
  • Vanilla ice-cream (it goes best with apple cake!)

I never managed to take any pictures. The shabbos cooking chaos took over.

Only the beginning of all the cooking...

What’s on your menu for tonight? Are there any of these recipes you’d like me to share?

Me and 6 guys for shabbat tonight. It’s going to be a good one! Shabbat Shalom!


New beginnings, and our own little Shabbos Project

Hello! You found us 🙂

Welcome to this little blog. It’s nothing too fancy (for now anyway). It’s just a little place for us to share our favourite Shabbos recipes, with each other and all of you! Shabbos, it’s (partly) all about the food 😉

The idea came about on one sunny December afternoon where we met up in the holidays. We joked about how we never thought we’d ever be able to cook growing up, about how grown up we are now, married, working, one of us with a kid. We started talking about some of the Shabbos foods we’d recently made. Jodi loves to make pavlova, Lee-Ann loves to make challah.

Naturally, I started asking Jodi for some of her recipes. And viola, our blog idea was born.

We are starting with humble beginning and hope to take off from there. Please feel free to read, share and comment on our blog and recipes. We don’t consider ourselves foodies, just some Jewish gals who like to wow our Shabbos guests with yummy food.

Stay tuned, we promise there’s more to come 😉
