Phil left on Friday morning and I was sad to see her go - but she claimed that clean undercloths were an integral part of shabbos to her and that she had to get home.
The cooking didn't take long at all and I even took SL into town for a little bit.
We made 'early' shabbos which was great and I picked Sara up at the campus on my way Home from dropping Z off at shul.
After the meal Friday night Sara left to study with some friends and a friends of Z's came over. We played 2 games of Settlers - because what else is there to play on Shabbos?
The Menu included:
Friday Night: roasted garlic, salatim, chicken soup, spice-rub chicken, white rice, peas, roasted vegetables
Shabbos Lunch: roasted garlic and cherry tomatoes, salatim, sliced veggies, zaatar chicken, couscous, white rice
Seudah Shlishit: melon, veggies and salatim
Desserts (all FF though not all dairy-free): chocolate chip cookies, mint thins, ice-cream (pb &/or vanilla+)
Drinks: 6 liters not-quite-snapple
The food came out great and we stuck to 'few' desserts (since both guests were on diets.)
Shabbos day was quite long but it passed pretty quickly. We read a lot then played some Scrabble and some more Settlers. Naps help pass the time too - but they also result in inability to sleep on Saturday night...
After havdala SL ran to catch a bus back to Jeru. Z straightened up the house and then we watched a completely pointless (yet amusing) movie.
Tomorrow Z's friends might be coming over to study for an upcoming physics final. If they're actually coming I think I might bake a batch of pesto rolls just for the heck of it. I mean - guests means that they'll get eaten and they just smell so good!
Not quite sure what's going on this week. I should probably try to figure that out...
