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.


This week is your VERY LAST CHANCE to win the Kosher by Design Teens & Twenty-Somethings cookbook in my “Cooking Disaster contest.”  Click here for details and to enter YOUR worst cooking disaster!

We got snow today!!!  Definitely need more o’ that home-comfort food now.  But before summer is officially gone (okay, it IS officially gone…), Ted has requested one last BBQ.

Sunday (tonight):  Ted-made Emergency Potato-Corn Soup at Mommy’s, with Mommy’s Martha Stewart baked macaroni & my Nanaimo Bars (impulse creation).

Monday:  Ground chicken burritos in homemade tortillas (Elisheva’s request for burritos of some sort), rice.  Secretly, these were chicken tacos, but she asked for burritos, so that’s what I called them!

Tuesday (Ted late):  Creamy Broccoli soup – Elisheva’s request, bread? – yes, sweet cinnamon-swirl oat bread.  Delicious, though slightly weird with broccoli.  :-)

Wednesday:  BBQ chicken on skewers – Ted’s request – mmm!  Used Paul Newman Sesame-Ginger dressing as a marinade on boneless thighs, my favourite cut of chicken.  SO tender!!!  With a thick beefy vegetable soup.  I hand-blendered in the (frozen) leftover chicken pot pie mixture from last week to make it extra thick and rich.

Thursday (Vegan Vursday):  Hot and sour soup; stir-fry - noodles?

Friday (Ted off, guests):  Something in a pumpkin?

Done for another week!!!
