Back to the Kitchen
It's been a while. After many years of lots of entertaining and extensive meal planning, I needed a break; some time to consider interests and priorities. Please, don't think that since I'm posting again I've magically found the secrets to life. Nope. But I have begun to figure out that I should consider my action, and think about what I'm doing rather than operate on auto-pilot. And as much as I love cooking and entertaining, making one fewer side dish, or buying challah instead of making homemade in order to spend time with someone I love, is a better choice.
But this shabbat, this empty nester has the joy of cooking for a son home on school holiday and here's what we'll have
Chicken Soup with Noodles
Roast Chicken with Shallots
Shabbat Lunch (with company)
Fettucine with Tomato Basil Crudo Salsa
Silver tip Teriyaki Roast
Honey Ginger chicken
Hot & spicy cabbage
Mesclun Salad with Toasted Pecans
Surprise Cookies (mallomar-ish)
Chocolate Chip Cookies
And if I don't have time to make the challahs, or pecans don't get toasted so that there's less stress - that's ok!
