Shabbat Menu – Barley Good

Let’s be honest, the detailed descriptions of sacrificial offerings that begin this week’s parsha don’t exactly put you in the mood for dinner.  In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if you started thinking of becoming a vegetarian.  But for this week’s Shabbat menu, I want to focus on one of the meal offerings.  “When you bring a meal offering of the first grains to Hashem, you shall bring your first grain meal offering [from barley], as soon as it ripens.”  It just so happens I love barley.  It is fiber-rich, contains important vitamins and minerals and all whole grain.  Plus, it can hold up well to reheating the next day or can be enjoyed right out of the fridge, which makes it a favorite grain for my Shabbat afternoon meals.
