It's a birthday shabbos! Amirah turns 8 tomorrow (on the English calendar). So... mostly her requests, with a few of my own thrown in for good measure. :)
lamb skewers marinated in garlic, rosemary, thyme, mustard, oil, and red wine vinegar
roasted potatoes (same marinade)
wonton soup (instead of actually making up the wontons I made little chinese meatballs and sliced the won ton wrappers into triangles; I was a little, er, short on time)
pickled beet salad
pickled cucumber salad
roasted garden vegetables (YAY!)
oyster mushroom sauté (got these at the farmers market; very meaty and delicious; we want to grow some here)
tomato basil garlic salad
meringues (supposed to be chocolate chocolate chip meringues, but that time thing got in the way again)
challah and salads from Friday, plus
beef barley stew
and at 5:00ish...
angel food cake and watermelon for whomever shows up!
