We are a Jewish family of 6 (2 parents, 4 kids) and all our meals are kosher.
Newcomers, you can read my MPM intro here which tells you all about who we are and what we eat, or just visit my super-duper-list-tastic itemization of Everything We Eat (as well as the rest of this blog, of course).
I’ve skipped a week here because last Monday we were in Ottawa. Had a pretty good week there, food-wise, but now it’s back to the old supper grindstone.
Monday (today): Homemade perogies (if I can find the pasta machine; if I can find a pareve dough recipe – apparently, traditional Polish pierogi are made with sour cream IN the dough!)
They turned out beautifully! I have made perogies before, but these ones held together stupendously well compared to others. I used chicken-broth flavoured instant mashed potatoes, with some cut-up cheddar along with garden chives and parsley. I meant to sprinkle fresh parsley over the top, but forgot in the chaos of making stuffed pasta right before supper time. Will I never learn???

Tuesday (17 Tammuz fast day – ugh – plus Ted’s late day, so we’re ALL eating late): Creamy broccoli soup, lasagna
Chicken skewers it was! (left, raw; below, plated with homegrown olive-oil-and-kale couscous)
Thursday (Ted’s off day – Vegan Vursday): Homemade Seitan stir-fry
Friday/Shabbos (maybe Sara?): Dunno, as always.
