So, seeing that HB and I might go to a conference most of friday, I decided to make my shabbos night meal tonight and warm it up right before shabbos. This was pretty successful, and took less time than cooking shabbos dinner usually takes. I'm serving...
Chicken soup (leftover from last night, ill make new matza balls tomorrow afternoon)
Chicken in wine and herb sauce (defrosted 4 chicken thighs, poured the rest of a mostly empty bottle of wine on them, capers, basil oil, and a splash of lemon then pinched a few oregano buds from my miraculously still alive herb box and some dried basil, thyme, and pepper)
Purple potato kugel (not as gorgeous as i would have liked, i grated two large purple potatoes, sliced a small onion very thinly, and added 4 eggs, a splash of oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder and baked it in a greased muffin tin. unfortunately, they stuck to the pan so that is how I will serve these mini kugels.)
Romaine salad with grape tomatoes (just cleaned some lettuce really, I'll make a dressing on shabbos)
I want to make some form of dessert but im not really sure what... maybe baked apples with nuts inside?
