Monday - Tomorrow is a Jewish fast day. It starts tonight at sundown and lasts for 25 hours. We eat only one cooked food and have other uncooked foods with it. My criteria for picking a recipe is that it is filling and that I love it. I had selected Ten by Sheila Lukins for Monday and I immediately turned to potatoes and found a recipe for Silky Mashed Potatoes on page 129. It sounds creamy and delicious.
Tuesday - We end our fast on Tuesday night, one hour after sundown. Usually, we bring in bagels and cream cheese and I make a filling egg dish so I looked in my next choice of a cookbook, Food Network - a Thousand Easy Recipes. I selected this book since I know that after a 25 hour fast, I don't want to fuss. I found the greatest egg dish, Hash Brown Eggs with cheddar cheese and onions. Page 118.
Wednesday - We haven't had meat except on the Sabbath so tonight, we bring meat back into our diet. I selected the Melissa Clark book, Cook This Now and opened it to any page, hoping it would be THE recipe. I opened to That-Style Ground Turkey wit Chiles and Basil. I love the Thai flavor and this needs a simple rice and a green vegetable for a complete meal. Page 233.
Thursday - If we have fish during the week it is usually on Thursdays so I decided to check out Dorie Greenspan's, Around My French Table for a salmon recipe and of course, I found one. Roasted Salmon and Lentils includes vegetables and makes a filling meal. Page 300.
This is for Meal Plan Monday where you will find many wonderful weekly menus. I had lots of fun making this menu and I hope to enjoy eating it, even more. The pictures are from Bing images.
