Post Poland Trip

Asaf is back from 8 days in Poland.  As usual, we have not heard much from him about his trip.  We are excited to have him back home and happy that he was able to take a break from his health issues.

In honor of his return, we are not having any guests this weekend.  While we more than enjoy having guests most weekends, this one will be family time.  Menus are much simpler and I'm not going to try for new exciting dishes.

Dinner - 7
Irish Beef Stew
Mashed Potatoes
Green Salad

Lunch - 7
Roast Chicken and Vegetables
Stuffed Pargiot and Rice
Israeli Salad

What are stuffed pargiot?

Pargiot are boned chicken thighs. You can buy them pre-packaged at the butcher or supermarket in Israel. They look like small rolls of dark meat, approximately 3 inches long and about 1 to 2 inches in width. This time I made up a stuffing using zucchini, celery, and red bell peppers along with one banana pepper, some bread crumbs and some wine (preferably white). I cook the stuffing in a small pan first. Then I open the little pargiot, spoon in one or two teaspoons of stuffing and put them in a pot. Add a bit more white wine or stock and let them cook in the over at 325 for about 30 to 45 minutes.

You can drain the sauce and re-heat the pargiot on shabbat, or serve the whole thing straight friday night.

I like it because you can constantly change the stuffing based on what you have lying around.

Oh, I like that idea. I've never seen that done. My kids are starting to get sick of my limited culinary repertoire, so I'm trying to branch out. This past Friday night's attempt was a disaster (don't ask). If I can find boned chicken thighs, I will try this. Thank you!
