Other “weekly challenges” 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.


On Wednesday, I will announce the winner of the “Kosher by Design Teens & Twenty-Somethings” cookbook in my “Cooking Disaster contest.” Click here to read all the exciting contest entries!

Sunday (tonight): I have no idea what we’ll eat… and my mother is out at the Royal Winter Fair, so she’s not cooking. This does not bode well; it could be pizza or something similarly horrible. Okay, I am making Alton Brown’s Butternut Potato Dumplings (but don’t use the recipe from the site because he has adapted it in his new book, Good Eats: The Early Years, which I happen to have from the library at the moment). He tosses these “gnocchi” with brown butter and sage – totally simple and hopefully elegant!

Monday (Ted off, Royal Winter Fair): Easy supper. Wheaty Spelty Bread, Take 2! What else???

Tuesday: Turkey sliders from Kosher by Design – one last test before my review! Plus, evening: make beef broth for Wednesday night stew

Wednesday: Beef stew made with AB’s beefy broth

Thursday (Ted late, Vegan Vursday): Scallion pancakes, maybe this sauce, something else w/veg/tofu/soup???

Friday (super-early Shabbos): Dunno!
