State of the Shabbos Address

Well, I didn't have any clue what we were having for shabbos dinner but I seem to have worked it out. I even baked challah again tonight! Go me. I feel all inspired and stuff. The only bad thing is that last Sunday, while making acorn squash with maple syrup and butter for Seth, I burnt the back of my hand. Badly. And mid-challah braiding, I scraped against my burn on my hand (don't ask how, it's a long story) and really, really hurt it. So I only braided half the dough. I made one very large loaf, three small loaves, one tiny loaf, and three microscopic loaves. They are so cute. They are for Julian. They are the size of, um, something really small. Anyway, I'm excited about them. That was a lot of braiding.

ANYWAY. Right. So I made challah. Now I have Butternut Squash Kugels in the oven cooking. I made one large (9x13 pan) and three small (9x9) pans. Three will go in the freezer.

Then I will pop the Coriander Chicken in the oven (thanks for the recipe, galads_forest!). While it's cooking I will make the peanut sauce that goes with it, and maybe a cucumber salad. Oh, and I should put Julian's lunch together. And put together his mitzvah notes for the week. And find some pictures of him to send in to the school (I was supposed to send them in two weeks ago, oops). SO MUCH TO DO.

I should add that I wouldn't be this ahead of the game, except that while I was running to KosherMart to pick up cupcakes for Julian's birthday party at school tomorrow, sethcohen, was a dear and cut up (and boiled) the butternut squash, which was the only time consuming part of making the kugel. While I was braiding my challah, Seth was putting together the marinade for the chicken (it's in the fridge now getting all nice and yummy). I bought salmon cakes at KosherMart because right now, I'm too lazy and/or too tired to also make fish fritters. Aaron will be disappointed, but I already warned him this morning that I might not get a chance since Julian's been sick. He said he understood. He's so sweet.

So... tomorrow is:
  • Challah,
  • Salmon Cakes
  • Maybe tofu dip if I get around to buying tofu. On the other hand, psu_jedi doesn't seem to be loving dill these days, so maybe not)
  • Maybe cucumber salad, if I get it made tonight.
  • Coriander Chicken with Peanut Sauce, served over egg noodles.
  • Craisin Salad.
  • Butternut Squash Kugel
  • Spicy Chickpea Salad
  • Dessert.
Seems like enough, right? I feel like I'm missing something. Oh well. Anyway, that's what we're having. We're having the Felds, Harold's Father, and the Abensons as our dinner guests. I don't know yet if we'll drum up anyone else. Probably not. I am not doing soup. I am lazy. Lazy, I tell you. Plus, I'd like to sleep before 3 tonight.

Oh, right. Nevermind. No sleeping. The cleaning lady is coming tomorrow, which means I have to clean up the kitchen and dining room. Which is hysterical because I stayed up all night LAST night cleaning both of those areas, and now they are a disaster again. I can never win.
