I'm totally stumped what to make. I bought a huge pack of fish, but can't have fish every night...

Hm I thought I was crazy planning dinner right after breakfast, but planning a nine day menu when there's no shortage of milchigs is baffling.

Thanks. You weren't invited for supper as far as I can remember. Oh and btw welcome back, you haven't been around for a while.

Milchigs can be quite expensive here, unless you're just talking about noodles and cheese.

I plan on enjoying meat up until the week of Tish'a be'Ab. After that, it's pizza, fish, and the like except for a hard boiled egg and some salad for the last meal.

WHat with meat being so cheap (relatively speaking) these days, and so much pareve junk, people are out of practice with milchigs...

My only problem with milchigs is my picky English DH..

Ok, forget the milchigs. There's plenty of other food to survive on for nine days, it's not like people eat meat every day- right?

We don't??? :huh2:

I plan my meals out for the month; an average week has at least 2 fleishig meals, not counting leftovers.

gourmet - yummy food
gourmand - fresser.


From dictionary.com:

A gourmet is a person with discriminating taste in food and wine, as is a gourmand. Because gourmand can also mean "one who enjoys food in great quantities" or even "a gluttonous eater," care should be taken to make clear its intended sense. An epicure is much the same as a gourmet, but the word may sometimes carry overtones of excessive refinement. This use of epicure is a misrepresentation of Epicurean philosophy, which, while it professed that pleasure was the highest good, was hardly given to excessive concern with food and drink.

I'm not completely sure about my 9 days menu yet.
I'm going to make a big pot of potato zucchini soup that I can serve as a side for several dinners. I think I'll make spaghetti with vegetarian meatballs tonight.

I hope you cut the onion with a pareve knife, or you might not be able to serve the onion soup either, because onions are a davar charif...

I'd suggest fish or soy patties with a veggie and a starch.

We do. Unfortuantly meat is about the only thing my husband counts as a meal so it's basicly all I've got used to cooking.
