Thinking about Shabbos
I'm thinking about what to do for Shabbos and I'm just not sure. We don't have any guests coming as of yet (any of you want to join us?), and if we don't get any guests, it's not the end of the world. Though that would be TWICE this month we didn't have guests, which is a little sad. Sigh. I don't know how I feel about it at all. It's weird.

Anyway, the point is that even if we DO end up with guests, it's unlikely to end up being more than a person or two, which means I don't have a lot of cooking to do. I have some rhubarb in the fridge, so the plan is to make a strawberry rhubarb pie tomorrow. I detest rhubarb, even in pie, but Seth loves it in pie form. So pie it is. Anyone got any good strawberry-rhubarb pie recipes?

Other than that, I'm feeling wholly uninspired, though I'll probably do my fish. And probably fruit salad and green salad. Otherwise, I'm lost. But maybe that's because fish, salad, and fruit salad sound like a nice filling meal to moi.

I don't like the strings, but otherwise, I tend to think of it as spring's answer to fall cranberries, more tart than bitter.

I'd ask to come over, but there's that whole distance thing that gets in the way ... :(

Having the same problem...

Though what are you doing the first weekend in Sept?

first weekend in Sept is a long weekend for us. I think we have a wedding in NJ on Sunday, but we'll be home for Shabbos (or at least I will be). You're more than welcome!

It's a long weekend for us too, and Avri's done work on the Wed before so we'd have enough driving time. We'll have to discuss it further. If you didn't have a wedding, I'd tell you to come here!

Oh, rhubarb. Wonderful rhubarb. Haven't had it in years. Sweet, soft, tender rhubarb. Great with ice-cream. I'm drooling.
