Homemade challah. Bunch of dips: tomato dip, babaganoush, hummus with something in it like garlic or pine nuts, techina, chrein triple strength, olive dip or dill dip. Usually cooked white fish and gefilta fish, sometimes sesame teriyaki broiled salmon, baked white fish in tomato sauce with veggies. Chicken soup with noodles, kneidels, lima beans. Main dish may be chicken from the chulent, roast chicken, flanken. Side sometimes potato kugel and lokshen kugel. Sometimes a baked 24 potato casserole called yaptzik, it has flanken meat in it. dessert can be compote with sorbet, or just sorbet and parave ice cream.November 4, 2010 8:22 pm at 8:22 pm #933557
We vary a lot. But the main thing visitors to our home will note is that we do a lot of Indian dishes. Indian dal (lentil stew) preserves very well over Shabat on a pot on the blech. Much tastier and healthier than traditional cholent. And this week is a very good week to serve masoor dal (red lentils) ;).November 4, 2010 8:27 pm at 8:27 pm #933558

For the most part, our menu is identical to what’s been listed so far, with one exception: our liver is sauteed in onions, with sugar and paparika.
My son “discovered” this dish at a simcha a while ago, and has taken charge of this item ever sinceNovember 5, 2010 5:45 pm at 5:45 pm #933570
Sugar in Liver?
Really, it works? I gotta look into this. Can you provide the exact recipe I will bli neder try making this!November 5, 2010 5:50 pm at 5:50 pm #933571
I’d imagine just enough to caramelize it.November 5, 2010 6:08 pm at 6:08 pm #933572
Its not an exact science, but essentially, you dice one huge onion, sautee in oil, until its collapsed, add 1 lb of broiled chicken liver, cut up into pieces the size of a grape, add sugar and paprika to taste (there’s probably a touch of salt and pepper as well, but I’m not sure).
Best bet? Buy a small container from a take-out place, so you know what to aim for. Or stop by, if you’re in the area!November 5, 2010 6:21 pm at 6:21 pm #933573
Does anybody make gefilte fish from scratch anymore? We tried it once and it did not turn out well (it had bad flavor). What spice should we try?November 5, 2010 6:38 pm at 6:38 pm #933574

Cholent, meat (roast or such), leftovers from the Friday night BBQNovember 5, 2010 7:46 pm at 7:46 pm #933575
I have eaten gefilte fish made from scratch three times. It was one shabbos in Bnei Brak, and they were made by two different people.
Both were absolutely horrible. By sholeshudes, we were dreading having to eat it again. One had a slightly more manageable taste, but that factor was overshadowed by the bones which were ground in.
I would not put it in favorite sandwich.
I would not make it my favorite dish at any restaurant.
I would use it as an incentive to stop smoking.
I would burn it on Chanuka or any other time.
I think boys should look for a girl who will not make it.
I think learning to not make it should be part of any course of over-education.
I think there should be a notation under everyone’s name whether they would eat it.
Eating it was not the craziest thing that ever happened to me.
Commenting on it could have led to a “most embarrassing moment”.
I would vote for “stateSenator” if he will agree to ban it.
They do not serve it at Shnitzi.
The girls out of school in Monsey should not make it in their spare time. (Sorry, no offense meant; I do sympathize with you.)
It is not a segula. (Definitely not a literal segula)
I hope they do not teach it in any Seminary.November 8, 2010 12:38 am at 12:38 am #933576
so i knwo someone who makes it and her husband loves it. i wouldnt. i just make my fish with salsa. and i tried a new fish company. Zevi’s. it was really really good!November 8, 2010 12:39 am at 12:39 am #933577
Now that we are talking about shabbos food…anyone have new chicken recipes(easy only?)November 8, 2010 2:01 am at 2:01 am #933578
Blachat in sauce

I only serve homemade gefilte fish and everybody (including me)loves it. I have been using the same recipe for years. We only have been able to buy the frozen logs/loaves here for about 5 years and nobody I know likes the bottled or canned fish, so 99 percent of the people I know make their own (or buy it from a caterer – very costly here). It certainly isn’t difficult to make.November 9, 2010 1:32 am at 1:32 am #933580
My rebbitzen makes different kinds of chicken:
Sweet and Sour
Take your pick. If I wouldn’t have to go to work on Friday, I would probably do more of the cooking. Right now, I only make the turkey salad, and sometimes the cholent.November 9, 2010 3:49 pm at 3:49 pm #933581
Lately my wife buys the gefilta fish rolls from Freunds Fish, their “simcha” rolls. But making gefilta fish from scratch is somewhat of a patchke but I can’t imagine it not being good, unless the maker chaets on ingredients or is just a plain lousy cook altogether. Truth is that there are many commercial frozen logs that are really good. Just try them until you find one you like. Also when the frozen logs are cooked, they taste best if cooked with whole white fish too. And they should only be cooked the same way. If you just take the frozen log and cook it in water, it’ll taste lousy whatever. Like I said, ya gotta know how to cook.November 9, 2010 9:32 pm at 9:32 pm #933582
Duvdl- can u tell me how you make mushroom chicken? Looks interesting since we’re big fans of mushrooms.November 9, 2010 11:11 pm at 11:11 pm #933584

I need to check with my wife. I think it is sauteed onions and mushrooms in a sauce, placed in pan over potatoe wedges and chicken 8th’s.November 10, 2010 7:45 pm at 7:45 pm #933587
Friday night is usually home made challah, soup (chicken/matza ball, or carrot cumin, or some kind of squash soup), chicken (roasted, or plum, or coffee, or another kind), salad, a green vegetable, rice/orzo, and chocolate chip cookies and whatever else my wife has made for dessert.
Lunch is sometimes fleishig with some kind of chicken schnitzle, or sometimes milchig with a terrific salmon and proper accompaniments, including ice cream for dessert. One of my kids is vegetarian, so it’s actually easier if we all eat milchigs. I don’t mind either way, as the food is delicious either way.
There’s also an awesome dessert called sof haderech. Basically, you melt 250 gr of bittersweet chocolate with 4 TBL peanut butter and 1 rich’s whip (not whipped), when smooth put in freezer. It’s really, really good! (Sof Haderech is Israeli teenage slang for awesome.)November 10, 2010 8:15 pm at 8:15 pm #933588
And of course, I didn’t even mention Krembo cake . . .November 10, 2010 8:49 pm at 8:49 pm #933589
WiseWOman: I like the one from the “Bride who knew nothing ” cookbook. I’ll try to pass it over by heart: Chicken pieces, fresh mushrooms, baby onions (or cut up larger ones) in a pan. sprinkle with salt and pepper. pour on 2/3 cup of dry red wine. sprinkle with fresh (or dried – but better fresh) parsley and thyme (I don’t like thyme, so I use basil). melt 2/3 cup (? sounds like too much – not remembering…) margarine and pour over everything. Stick in 2 bay leaves (I don’t) bake uncovered 1.25 hours. Yum.November 10, 2010 9:08 pm at 9:08 pm #933590
personally i never use basil
it always gives what to me is a somewhat unpleasant licorice like flavor
i find oregano is a very nice substitute for basil.November 10, 2010 9:16 pm at 9:16 pm #933591
Do you use the stem?
I find that if you just use the leaf it has a more mild flavor.November 10, 2010 9:19 pm at 9:19 pm #933592
i just use whatever ground up stuff comes in the bottle
not much of a gourmet i guessNovember 10, 2010 9:24 pm at 9:24 pm #933593
LOL. I didnt realize you were talking about dry herbs…November 10, 2010 9:28 pm at 9:28 pm #933594
Delicious and easiest chicken is cooked in an oven bag. (Not so easy to come by..) You put the chicken in the bag with some spices and some potatoes (optional) and some onion (usually left over from the “Eiyer Mit Zvibbel” and Cucumber Salad I make!)
No messy clean up either.. My mother used to add the juice into the chicken soup.. Delicious flavor made the soup rich .. and oily..March 1, 2013 5:54 pm at 5:54 pm #933595
Any new great tasting and healthy suggestions?March 1, 2013 6:38 pm at 6:38 pm #933596
There are 2 kinds of Jews: those who think gefilte fish is really really good and those who are not British.March 1, 2013 7:17 pm at 7:17 pm #933597
Gefiltle whatever it is (It isnt Fish for sure) is nasty and I wont eat it unless there is nothing else to eat and I am starvingMarch 1, 2013 7:30 pm at 7:30 pm #933598
That’s because you’ve never had deep fried gefilte fish in beer batter.
