And breakfast, lunch and dinner tomorrow since it's Shabbat? In other words, please share your menu plans and recipes for Sabbath days.

I, For one, could use additional ideas and I'll bet I'm not alone. The thing that I probably struggle the most with is breakfast on Sabbath morning, not so much for myself, but for my 2 big, hungry guys. Of course, that's what I struggle with, but I'd like us to post meal plans and recipes in general.

I'll start us off with a super easy casserole I like to make:

Brown a pound of ground turkey (more if you have a larger family as there are only 3 of us). Season meat with whatever you like

Make a pot of rice (I also like mine with fresh oregano or basil mixed in or you can leave it plain)

Steam or boil a mixture of your favorite fresh veggies (enough to cover your casserole dish...you can also use frozen, but fresh is better for your health)

When meat, veggies and rice are fully cooked, layer a casserole dish with the rice first. Next layer the meat and then the veggies. You can also add a can of cream of mushroom soup for an extra kick (or, really, any sauce you prefer) if you'd like or leave it out...up to you. Finally, top the casserole with your favorite cheese (or even vegetarian cheese ) and bake at about 350 for approx 15 minutes.

Let it cool for about another 10 minutes (or until it firms a little more) and dig in!

I've been making this since I was a child and have found that I can make it taste different each time with a manipulation of spices, veggies and sauces.

Enjoy and please post!

Ummmm, so you guys fast on every Shabbat? Hmmm, okay...lol

Not that fasting on Shabbat is a bad idea, but in case anyone here doesn't, would you mind sharing a few tips or recipes?

Clearly I am late but here are some ideas for food on Shabbat:

Cold meats, cheeses, some good french bread and some sort of dressing..whatever your favorite is.. You can eat cold meats and cheeses with bread sticks, good gourmet crackers, and some spread. YUM!

I love Naan (the india flat bread). And Pita bread.. you can eat it with your pre-made chicken, tuna, or turkey salad.

I like cold fried chicken. A LOT! LOL! Always good with potato or macaroni salad on hand.

Any kind of pre-made salad is good. I love chicken salad sandwhiches. Grilled salmon is awesome cold...

Always keep sliced veggies on hand.. tomatoes, celery, carrots, olives, broccoli, etc.

Any kind of breads too... like french bread, italian bread, etc dipped in some sort of dressing. Some people take that round bread, cut the middle out and chop it. Then fill it with their favorite dip and dip the bread inside... it can be spinach dip, veggie dip, even just ranch dressing with some diced veggies.

Most people either make Challah bread or buy it. (I buy it... shameful, I know! LOL!) And it's so good with ANYTHING.

Salsa is good to have on hand as well.

Fruit dipped in yogurt, honey, and sprinkled with some sort of nuts. I love pecans and almonds. And always keep nuts on hand... apples, nuts, and a good cheese is soooooo good together. I know it sounds weird.. but the flavors compliment eachother.

And if you like dessert stuff keep around..cake, pie, dounuts, brownies, rice crispies, cookies, icecream bars.

Corn bread or some sort of muffins (blueberry, lemon, butter, apple) are good to have on hand. Danish as well.

Freeindeed I have actually made that almost exact casserole that you mentioned... I thought I had made it up! Guess not! LOL! It's really really good... I like to cook mine longer though in the oven because it gets a nice crust on the top. I don't like cream of mushroom.. so I use cream of chicken or make a sort of "gravy" of my own to do it.

Do you like pesto ? That's good on sandwhiches! Given, it's mainly known to be over pasta. But it's good on crusty bread... and you can easily make it at home. Fresh basil, pie nuts, extra virgin olive oil, garlic, and kosher salt. It's soooooo good. LOL!

Hope I helped add something to the thread.

Yes, you helped add something to the thread, Missy, and even though I have no reason to be hungry (had a great dinner)...you've made me hungry all over again! lol

I'm going to have to Google Challah bread as I have no idea what it is or how to make it, but this is the second time this week I've heard it mentioned. Is it hard to prepare?

The dish we make is probably one that a lot of us thought we made up, lol. It really is a delicious nutritious meal though, isn't it?

Thanks for contributing and keeping the thread going, Missy!

there's nothing like a payday and a red bull to get Sabbath morning started!

oh yeah, and challah goes GREAT with that...


and speaking of challah - has anyone ever tried making french toast with it? OH YEAH!! if not then shame on you and other guilt-applicable admonitions reminiscent of a Jewish mother.

seriously, i'm no cook, so i normally munch around the house - almonds are a fav, as well as cherry tomatoes and pistaschios (sp?) - yum! chips and really hot salsa work as well. we recently discovered an organic chocolate milk - Promised Land brand - almost like a milk shake. liquid grooviness! and anything coated in sugar or laced with caffeine are also acceptable consumables for me.

Shalom Free,

Glad I did. Sorry I made you hungry again.. LOL!

Oh my Challah bread is sooooooo good. I don't find it hard to prepare at all and I do make it at times.. but I just buy mine cause we have a couple of local bakeries that make it weekly. And it's easy to pick up if I am in a rush to beat the Shabbat count down! LOL!

I can't believe you don't know what it is though... Jews serve it like every Shabbat and so do many Messianic believers. My family has it all the time.

It looks like this:

Here are some links to recipes:

http://www.101cookbooks.com/archives/challah-bread-recipe.html
http://www.recipezaar.com/80129
http://www.thefreshloaf.com/recipes/challah

All of them have a little different spin on them.

Oh my gosh.. and Challah makes the BEST french toast you will ever have in your entire life!

RED BULL.. YUCK.. B1.. Baby Ezra told me to tell you.. NO DA DA! NO RED BULL! LOL!

I hate that stuff. I tasted it once and wretched! Sorry.

Get Turkey Hill Iced Tea! YUM! I always have a fridge full of it. And I slice real lemon and put it in there with tons of crushed ice. TASTY!

But Challah is soooooo good as french toast. Especially with warm maple syrup and turkey sausages!

Anything laced with sugar huh, B1... LOL! You sound like my son. I have to keep him OUT of sugar snacks and drinks. LOL! But what kid doesn't like sugar ? I have to say though.. he drinks a lot of water...and for that I proud of him. He picks water over fruit juice all the time. So my husband started buying our son his own mini bottle of water for just his size (he's a 4 1/2 yr old). And we put them low in the fridge so he can go in and get them anytime he wants all by himself! He thinks he's a big boy!

Hey B1, I hope this is not to personal.. but I have alway wondered .. Are you Jewish ? I only ask because you seem like you were raised Jewish by a lot of your postings on the forum and I always wondered and never asked you. Plus I appreciate your insights all the time. Plus here you mention "a Jewish mother".

So if it's not so nosey.. are you Yehudi ?

If it's to nosey just say MYOBM which is Mind Your OWN Business Missy!

Shalom Papa B1.. hee hee.

Missy

Shalom Missy,


reb bull is pretty horrible stuff, but it is one of my vices that i'm working on. i was doing two "monsters" a day, but i've been attempting to wean myself off these wicked elixirs. the caffiene headaches are not worth it, but i'm too much of a wimp to go cold turkey, plus i wouldn't be of any use to anyone were i to go that route. so the slow wean it is.

so you like iced tea...well i am more of a hot tea drinker. sweet is good, but if it is going to have ice in it, then no sweetness for me! i dig the challah brad french toast with butter pecan syrup and powdered sugar, and of course the turkey sausages rule!

sounds like your son is off to a good start. just think of sugar as fuel to keep him going during the day so he'll crash at night! haha
but the water thing is a good sign. i do try to drink as much water as i can during the day, but i also enjoy a rosato wine and a few select belgium ales every once in a while, too.

me Jewish? only in the sense that Messiah has grafted me into Yisra'El. if i am to one day be put with a certain tribe, well, that is not up to me, but the Father. i'm just an old boogerhead Gentile, for all i know. my grandfather told me we do have Jewish blood somewhere along the line - but i have no idea who or where, so i don't worry about any of that. from what i do know i'm of Norwegian and English descent (that explains my tendency to pillage and my affinity for tea) . i have studied Judaism and the culture quite heavily, and i do feel more led to reach out to those in that vein. so if i've come across as one, there's your reason why.

Thanks, Missy! Now that I see it, I know exactly what it is. I've seen it many, many times...just never knew that's what it was called. LOL

I recently asked my mom to teach me how to make homemade bread (I tried on my own and made nothing, but a mess), but I think I'm going to give making the Challah bread a try, so thanks for the recipes.

Edited to Add: Actually, I thought about it after logging off and I did know what it was called, except it was the wrong thing. lol I thought it was called Monkey Bread, but after looking for pictures of Monkey Bread online, I see I was all twisted.

"Any verse in the New Testament that supports a change in unclean animal status, is either a MISTRANSLATION or a MISINTERPRETATION or ADDED NON ORIGINAL VERSE ADDITION.

All writers of the New Testament were Jews, or in the case of LUKE the Doctor, he was a Gentile living as a Jew and living around Jews. Acts 20.6 Acts 17.2 and 18.4 The definition of FOOD in the bible is not the same as Western food.


#1 There are food groups. Each food group has its own rules for "acceptability" (Kashrut) Kashrut means ACCEPTABILITY. Kasher or Kosher means "acceptable".

Fish are not animals, birds are not animals. Fish are a food group. Birds are a food group. Animals refers to earth walkers. Crawlers are not animals. They are crawlers. They are not a food group, since no crawlers are clean, and none should be eaten, EVER.

# 2 An animal that eats animal flesh, also eats animal blood. Carnivores naturally eat blood. This is a detail Americans aren't fully aware of.
#3 Food in the bible.. does not refer to American food, Western food, Oriental cuisine, but the world FOOD refers only to food a JEW of Israel would eat, because those that wrote the bible all obeyed FOOD of Leviticus 11. (yes including Luke the Doctor) in other words... in the bible.. pig and shrimp n lobster are NOT included as a FOOD, but rather they are poison spiritually and physically.

According to the Bible there are clean and unclean creatures even BEFORE the existence of Judaism or Hebrews or Moses.

For example, only clean animals were sacrificed on any altar, read Noah's sacrifice of clean animals, never an unclean animal.

Animal sacrifices were mongolian barbecues. Most sacrifices had left-overs that were eaten by man, except for the Burnt Offering. The Burnt Offering was unique in that no meat was eaten by humans, but the flesh was DEEP FRIED to God. It was completely burnt "as a sweet savor" to God. BTW a burnt offering was burnt in its own fat and oil, so it is more correct to call it a DEEP FRIED OFFERING. so it smelled VERY GOOD, for miles and miles.........."

I am a retired chef and you can make almost anything you want for Sabbath. My wife and I have a 3 compartment warmer like a small steam table and we make stews and soups and cassarols and put into the warmer. After Kiddish we still have hot food because the warmer is elect and I plug it in before sinset. Breakfast is bagel and cream cheese or challa bread left over from Fri night with jam or honey. For Sabbath day lunch we have a cold chicken or tuna mac salad or some Fridays I start a large stew in my crock pot or even a pot roast for lunch. With the pot on low it takes hours to cook and it is ready just about lunch time. Don't go hungry because you can eat any clean food you want. I go to a Messanic Jewish congeration and they cook on Fri and put the pot and all in the fridge and then reheat on sabbath. It is OK as long as you don't start from scratch on the Sabbath. Enjoy good food and good fellowship with the LORD.
