Just before my husband left for work this morning, he asked what to make for himself tonight. Usually, he takes leftover cooked chicken, or whatever other fleishig, is in the fridge from Shabbat, soup too, with leftover vegetables and carbohydrates. He cuts a fresh salad and has a full meal when I'm working night shift.
Yes, that's my cooking routine. When I cook for Shabbat I made enough food for the week. It works for us. It's more complicated during the Nine 9 Days when fish a dairy are the protein. And this year it begins tonight, Thursday. I also have to calculate exactly how much to cook for Shabbat without being stuck with food we can't finish during the week or can't freeze. I'll make all of the side dishes in parve pots so they can be served all week long.
I picked up more salmon, which I'll cook up as "one pot" baked meals, or use the same ingredients in a large covered frying pan.
- Dairy food can end up very expensive.
- Dairy food isn't as healthy as it's cracked up to be. Read the ingredients even in the simplest dairy product.
- Dairy food isn't as filling as a piece of chicken, beef or fish.
