Shabbat Menu – Hasselback Potatoes


Contributed by:



4 comments | Leave Comment


This week’s parsha brings us to the beginning of the final book of the Torah.  It is a long farewell by Moses to the Jewish people as the Children of Israel prepare to enter the Holy Land without him.  Lest the people forget their history, Moses reminds the Jewish people who have been wandering for nearly 40 years of where they came from and where they are going.  For us, we celebrate this Shabbat with a meal to fill us with the strength and energy to handle whatever comes next – whether conquering a new land or a new week of challenges and triumphs (and a fast).

*Note: most of these recipes are wonderful grilled, but would work very nicely in the broiler if you don’t have a grill.
