Other “weekly memes” I participate in that may or may not interest you:

We are a Jewish family of 6 (2 parents, 4 kids) and all our meals are kosher.

Newcomers, read my MPM intro here which tells you all about who we are, or just visit my super-duper-list-imization of Everything We Eat.

SO… what the HECK is there to eat that we didn’t get enough of seven times over on Yom Tov???  I feel like we ought to be eating a whole bunch of plain food to compensate for the ritual overeating of the last few weeks. 

(Okay, okay, the that “ritual overeating” part is not exactly true.  Overeating is actually not only a chillul Hashem but also a violation of bal taschis – the prohibition of wasting anything good or useful.)

Sunday (tonight):  Sloppy Joes (YM’s birthday pick!) at our house on delicious homemade no-knead buns.  My mother said “what a waste” to serve something lazy like sloppy joes on something delicious like fresh bread.  But fresh bread is never a waste, so there.

Monday (Ted’s late day):  Chicken Wings (sticky or buffalo???) (inspired by Batya)

Tuesday (busy BUSY day):  Homemade pizza, easy, easy

Wednesday:  Fish n’ Chips (Ted’s request, battered & fried the authentic way… ie, the way I have never ever been able to do it properly before).  Tartar sauce.  Frozen french fries, cooked in the oven.  Less than authentic, but if I’m patchking with the fish, I want everything else to be easy.

Thursday (Vegan Vursday):  Pareve polenta w/wine & mushroom sauce?  Roasted veg?

Friday (Ted off work)/Shabbos:  TBD
