Menu Plan: Week of March 9, 2014

By | March 9, 2014

There is an inordinate amount of baking planned for this week. It starts with a test run of the cheesecake squares I dreamed up for Shavuos and a batch of the no-fail hamentaschen that makes perfect sense in my head, then continues with a big cake for the women’s event in my yishuv on Tuesday and cupcakes for mishloach manot. And because I don’t want to end up eating any of that for breakfast, there will also need to be muffins (I’m thinking these) and granola bars for when we inevitably run out of muffins.

What this means for dinner this week is (1) simple and (2) healthy. Lest you get distracted by the sour cream on the menu, let me redirect your attention to the kasha, sweet potatoes, lentils, and techina. See? Those things totally balance out the baking.

With Purim fast approaching, I’m going to share that no-fail hamentaschen recipe with you asap. After that, it’s a sneak peek of our mishloach manot. Wish me luck on at least getting the sample package done in time.

I’m going to keep it pretty simple. Peel, cube, and roast sweet potatoes with a bit of oil and a sprinkle of salt, pepper, paprika, and cumin. Cook kasha in water with salt and cumin. Mix them up and add some olive oil and crushed garlic.
