I’m busy getting ready for Shabbat. Tonight five of my students are coming to dinner. There’s also a guest coming whom I met during the week. I advertised on a local listserv that I had boxes to give away, and she needed boxes. And there’s plenty of room at the table so I invited her.
Dinner is going to be simple:
- Mac and Cheese
- Pineapple Slaw
- Waldorf Salad
- Green Beans with Garlic roasted in Olive Oil
- and Challah.
Linda’s making cookies for dessert, and I have little mandarins to go with the cookies (or instead of cookies, if someone is avoiding sugar.)
Shabbat dinner does not have to be fancy. I like to have “comfort foods” for Shabbat, myself. It is less stressful for the cook, and easy on the guests, too.
Now I have to go set the table!
