Well, once again we've come round to my FAVOURITE time of the week; Shabbat (sabbath)!
You can click on the label over >>> on 'sabbath' to read more about other shabbat (sabbath) preparations and menus :)
I had 4 adults here today helping me clean, pre-cook and prepare and it was a real blessing! So please keep that in mind when you see these photos! Sometimes I have no one here to help me, I prepare very little and don't have time to scratch my head and wonder where the day has gone to! Other days like today, are a little more productive when I have more hands on deck. I appreciate these kind of days and the other kind too ;) The only reason I really love to prepare is just so I can have a real relaxing and restful day myself! Shabbat is a real gift to me from my loving Abba (Father)!
This weeks menu...
Pastrami (which we found out thanks to lovely Donna is corned beef!) melts with spanish onion, kalamata olives, tomato, mushrooms and cheese with some homegrown watercress (thanks dad!)...
Grown-ups eating choc fondue (strawberries) with a cuppa when little ones are in bed :)
Shabbat cereal ( a once a week special cereal)
My mum's bolognese sauce (it is the BEST in the world!!!) and she cooked it here this arvo and we popped it in the fridge ready to heat up for lunch
I'll whack on a pot of pasta tomorrow to go with it
We are having some friends around for our first casual Shabbat gathering!
So I made these (packet ahem!) cinnamon scrolls to share
We bought vegetarian hot dogs to try for the first time! So i'll heat them up and chuck them on some rolls I already bought with a bit of salad and some fruit chutney for those who like that.
Well that's the menu for this week.
Happy resting :)
All my love,
