Shavuos Foodies!

Simplified Hot-Weather* Shavuos Menu 2011

Two low-key meals at home, and two reasonably low-key meals away.  Crossing stuff out as it’s done:







Lunch – Mommy

Herb parmesan bread

Neapolitan cake


Chocolate Charm


Dairy – Just us

Herb parmesan bread

Salsa-Baked G fish (recipe below)

Soup – leeky tato

Bowties, Pesto & peas

Beets & carrots, roasted


Dairy – Us + Judy

Herb parmesan bread

Salsa-Baked G fish

More leeky tato soup (chilled if hot?)

Squash kugel (nope!) or Avivah’s Butternut Squash Casserole?

Manicotti (no recipe)

KBD carrots and/or Corn




Easy salsa-baked gefilte fish (so easy it’s not funny):

  1. Open a package of frozen gefilte fish.  Peel off the paper.  Whomp it into a loaf pan.
  2. Schlop a big jar’s worth of your favourite salsa (give or take:  mine had some out of it already) right on top of the fish.
  3. Bake at 350 for 1.5 hours (1 hour if fish isn’t frozen).
  4. If you remember, spoon salsa back over the fish while it bakes; if you forget, it’s not the end of the world.
  5. Serve chilled.

* At last.  Of course, after months of FREEZING, it’s “shmoiling” (as my kid would say) in here.
