Friday night included Chicken soup with meatballs, Persian saffron and tomato chicken, jeweled saffron and almond pilaf, roasted baby sweet potatoes, and crisp lightly steamed green beans seasoned with a touch of garlic and a drizzle of olive oil.
We went 'light' for lunch. Tossed salad, sliced veggies, spreads, glazed salmon, tomato cheese quiche, mini pizzas with a variety of toppings.
Then seuda shlishit was a veritable feast at dinner time. We enjoyed a big plate of chumus basar, ff Shnitzelonim, ff potato kugel, yellow rice and meat salad, and a selection of salatim and finger-food goodies from the local catering-hall.
Nobody left hungry. That's for sure.
It was a delightful weekend! We shmoozed and played (mostly with Lego). I wouldn't let The Crazy Lady wash any dishes, because she was on vacation. Some neighbors stopped by on Shabbos afternoon. Their son is the same age as Buzz, and the two of them played with train tracks and 'power tools' before realizing that there were cookies on the counter. It was really nice!
I have a fruit bowl and cookie jars! I LOVE my kitchen!!!
Our calendar is wide-open for next weekend. After 6 busy weekends, it'll be our first Shabbos with no plans at all since we moved. The week is long though, so that could always change.
