This Shabbat was utterly wonderful! We had the Titian-Haired Goddess, Menachem Butler, The Golden-Haired Girl and her friend, SJ, Erachet and The Book Thief. The Titian-Haired Goddess brought cinnamon babka and amazingly gorgeous long purple candles that I must light at some time, Menachem Butler provided treats from Gruenbaum's (black-and-white cake and chocolate chip cookies), The Golden-Haired Girl and her friend made whole wheat amazing challot, SJ and Erachet brought fruit and The Book Thief provided drinks.
Now to the food. I must inform you that there was a large vegetable-filled salad which you will not see pictures of due to the fact that it was made, dressed and spice on Shabbat proper. But here is everything else.
We begin with the chicken soup:
And matza balls, which were later added to said soup:
Then I decided to create a Thanksgiving theme. We had Chicken Charlie:
And this was meant to be eaten with fresh, homemade cranberry sauce:
Then there was pumpkin pie!
And Lokshen Kugel:
And then Sweet & Sour Chicken (and it looked much prettier on the platter than just taken out of the oven like this):
And this is why y'all should come over.
