Today was a fast day and when I planned my weekly menu, I did not take this into account. I shifted gears and made Wednesday's meal which is a macaroni and cheese with spinach, nice and creamy, real comfort food.
We have a number of fast days in Judaism, some are long and some are shorter. This is a short one and we could eat until sun-up and it lasts until after 9 in the evening. We usually want something light to eat after a day of not eating so it is usually a dairy meal or simply a bagel with cream cheese. The mac and cheese fits right into our needs.
Of course, you may know me well enough, I usually don't leave well enough alone and when I found that ll the cilantro, we grew was gone, I had to improvise and I did my adding 2 cups of spinach, a tablespoon of soy sauce and a tiny bit of maple syrup. Please go over to Deb's for the correct recipe. She has tons of great ideas on her blog along with these who were inspired by Nigel Slater.
