Been a while.....

Holy readers, it's been almost three months since my last post.  I've been working at a new job and finding balance in my life.   Many thanks to a few readers for pestering me to keep writing.  I do appreciate the motivational help.

My wife suggested that we try for a very simple meal on Friday night instead of the full blown orgies of epicurean wonders that I usually attempt.  We tried it last weekend and we will try it again tonight.  We are aiming at single bowl meal with soup, salad and a starch.  It is surprising how filling a few bowls of soup are and we really don't need all the fancy  calories twice on Shabbat.

With the beginning of the school year, we also begin to invite families once again for Shabbat lunch.  This weekend, we have a reasonable size group of 18.  Four of them are below 10, but still, its a crowd.

Both the chicken recipes come from a cookbook called "The Spicy Food Lover's Bible".  It has relatively simple recipes with lots of heat.  I'm a big fan.
