Menu planning Monday (Sukkot part 2)


This week, we have another 3 day Yom Tov run. We had a lot of guests (both eating and sleeping) over the first days, and a lot of leftovers, so we’re taking it easier this time. And yes, my menu is different than I originally planned–things keep changing. The cousins we have sleeping here had other preferences, I had a lot of two kugels left and not a lot of a third, etc. Last, we never get everyone together to eat a full meal at a decent hour on Simchat Torah, so we are having simpler meals and snacks then. And after this month of eating and eating, we are ready for simpler altogether! So we’re shaking it up this week.

As always, we keep breakfast and lunch flexible depending on what we’re in the mood (for with the ingredients on hand.)

Chol HaMoed Breakfasts: Yogurt with M and Ms (less expensive Yocrunch), cereal, and eggs (and fruit)

Sunday: Lunch falafel, dinner pizza out with cousins!
