No-Shopping November Day Fourteen

Day Fourteen. One more day until the halfway mark. Friday is usually a busy day for me kitchen-wise, as I get ready for the Sabbath. We try to have a nice meal, fresh tablecloth, candles etc. And then I plan to rest on Saturday, no cooking. So, I usually make an extra something on Friday, more than just the meal.

It’s a good thing I had most everything done early, because we had an emergency medical situation with one of our sons, who woke up with what we thought was a pinched nerve from sleeping wrong, and discovered that he had a fractured and dislocated shoulder. So, our “normal” plans changed dramatically.

If you missed the previous posts in this series, you can catch up here. The oldest posts are on the bottom, newest on top. You’ll find all the recipes for No-Shopping November on this page.


Day Fourteen


Placed the leftover whole wheat pasta and marinara in the dehydrator
Did my “Chickin’ Pickin’ and refrigerated the meat
Strained and chilled chicken stock
Mashed up chicken bones and “stuff” for pet food, placed in fridge
Made matzah ball batter
Removed homemade bread from the freezer
Opened #10 can of dehydrated sweet corn and rehydrated some for our supper
Cooked quinoa


Organic cheese melted on whole wheat crackers
Toast from homemade whole wheat bread
Almond milk cocoa

Today was a difficult day dealing with our son and his medical emergency. We just held on and did what we could do. On these days, you don’t worry about getting it right, you just get through as best you can. And, in our case, we pray a LOT, trust G-d and don’t sweat the small stuff.
