This week is Shavuot, the Jewish holiday that celebrates our receiving the Torah at Mount Sinai. For a few reasons that I won’t go into here (you’re welcome to google it), it’s traditional to eat dairy foods on Shavuot. Yes, dairy foods… cheesecake, ice cream, blintzes… yum! It’s going to be a delicious week!
Monday – Homemade schnitzel and chips for the kids. Grilled chicken breasts and roast potatoes for the grownups. Also broccoli.
Tuesday – Shavuot begins at sundown (company for dinner). Soup, quiche, eggplant parmesan, Israeli salad, sugar snap peas, Challah. Chocolate amaretto cheesecake for dessert.
Wednesday – Eggplant parmesan, pasta with some kind of yummy sauce, ice cream for dessert (it’s a holiday, remember?)
Thursday – Blintzes! Mushroom for main course, cheese for dessert.
Friday – Brisket, kugel, sweet potatoes, stir-fried peppers, challah
Saturday – Deli sandwiches, pickles, corn
Sunday – Chicken pesto pasta salad with olives and cherry tomatoes
Monday – Breakfast for dinner – eggs, turkey bacon, toast
