Yes yes yes, I know - it's Wednesday. But - here's what I've got for you:
Something yummy: Last Friday night was our Tex-Mex Shabbat. This was the menu:
taco soup - devoured - obviously, I highly recommend
chips & salsa & guacamole
brisket tacos - made up of warmed tortillas, Sour Supreme non-dairy cream cheese, cilantro, diced tomatoes
Mexican rice - courtesy of a friend who shared her family recipe
Fajita veggies - peppers and onions sauteed with a whole lot of taco seasoning
I also made chicken drumsticks and chicken breast with taco seasoning in case someone wanted chicken.
And - watermelon for dessert.
It was - AMAZING!!
Something crafty: I still need to make those Shabbat counselor tags for my synagogue's Mini Minyan, but for Thanksgiving, we're going to do some fun Thanksgiving-related crafty edibles. Hopefully I'll snag some pics and post them.
Something financial: Well - I just WON a giveaway on a blog!!!! That rocks!!! Thanks Kosher on a Budget!!
Something spiritual: It's Thanksgiving, and I love seeing people get together with family and friends and share a special meal and memories. But - what makes me sad is that apparently people do this so infrequently? We are so fortunate to celebrate Shabbat every week, with its Thanksgiving-style meals, and we do surround ourselves with family and friends every week, so while I love Thanksgiving and how fun it is and all of the food, personally, I give thanks that I do this every week no matter what, and I don't have to wait for a special date on the calendar to give thanks for what I have.
