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

Hi!  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.

image Sunday:  Cheese Fondue big-birthday-girl supper, with chocolate fondue dessert, at Mommy’s house, with Sara & Abigail  (yay, next Sunday is my birthday… mostly so I won’t have to cook again)

Monday (tonight, PTA):  Homemade ravioli with new ravioli roller; leftover homemade baguette w/garlic, leftover salad and mango-poppy dressing from last night.  I am making the spinach-“ricotta” filling out of homemade cottage cheese.  Is that a little much?  Or is it just enough…

Tuesday (Ted late):  Easy chicken on rice

Wednesday (Big-girl birthday!):  Roasted-tomato soup, oat bread, polenta with mushrooms

Thursday (Ted off, Vegan Vursday):  Homemade seitan in hot & sour soup – must codify this process because I brought it to somebody last week and she asked for the recipe.  Roasted or stir-fried veg – possibly with miso?

Friday/Shabbos:  No clue!

Wow – this was the easiest MPM ever!!!


  1. How did the homemade ravioli turn out? I so want to make ravioli but the one time I tried it was a disaster.

  2. Oh, it was SO beautiful, and I meant to take a picture, but I had to run out to PTA.
    I bought a new ravioli maker (similar to this one, but I have made it many times without one, so don't let that discourage you.
    However, if you haven't already, I'd recommend mastering basic pasta first (WITH a roller - there is no good way to make pasta by hand). Once you have a good recipe (last night, I used only flour, eggs and a tiny bit of salt), you can start fiddling with it. I have made a LOT of disaster-pasta in my life to get to this point!
    Since we can't buy kosher filled pasta anymore, homemade ravioli and tortellini is more than a special treat, it's a MUST.
    I can't believe I used to take for granted the tinned ravioli we ate growing up!
