It's All About the Product - Take 2

The menus for this shabbat are all about my sons' favorties foods - Older son is home from Israel and it's younger son's last weekend home before camp.

Many of their favorite recipes call for chopped, minced or crushed garlic, and I've found that a microplane grater deals makes dealing with garlic a snap.  Easy to use, easy to clean, no smelly hands!  Leave the stem end on the garlic after you peel it for a handle.

The grater is also terrific for grated ginger, avoiding the stringy mess that can happen when you try to grate ginger on a box grater.

The microplane grater turns my sister's recipe for Spicy Noodles (with sesame oil, soy sauce, crushed garlic, ginger and crushed red pepper) into a 2 minute recipe - my favorite kind!

This shabbat's foods will include sushi (home made), gazpacho, cajun meatloaf, corn kugel and whatever else their hearts (and stomachs!) desire -
