We’re not terribly traditional when it comes to Shavuot foods. We like dairy here, and more than half prefer dairy to meat. So we enjoy this holiday – although dh holds that for a Yom Tov, he should eat meat, so there is some of that, too. Here is our pretty simple menu from Shavuot 2012:
Night 1 (Dairy) Note this starts so late that we didn’t have too much–it was 9:45 before my dh even got home!
Sour cherry soup
Lunch 1 (Dairy)
Pasta and sauces (garlic peanut sauce, tomato sauce, alfredo sauce)
“Salad” sliced and prepared by older kids (cucumbers, carrots, apples, bananas, and blueberries arranged nicely on a plate)
ice cream and dairy candy
Night 2 (Meat)
Challah and salads
Sesame beef and rice
Lunch 2 (Dairy): Mexican!
7 layer dip and chips (“refried” beans, rice, crushed nacho chips, cheese, taco sauce, and guacamole. I guess you could add sour cream if you like it and actually need 7 layers to your 7-layer dip.)
