I know it is overdone, but how can I resist?  A staff sprouting almonds in Parsha Korach a menu featuring almonds is our only choice.  This week a rebellion is quashed, but there are still murmurings against the leadership of Moses and Aaron continue.  Aaron’s staff sprouting almonds serves as a powerful image conveying Hashem’s selection of the Priestly class and a life of service for the tribe of Levi.   Luckily almonds are healthy and delicious so go ahead and enjoy your almonds as if they were sprouting from your kitchen.

This week’s menu is sponsored by KOL Foods Grass Fed Meat- right now get 10% off lamb shanks with the coupon code, SHANK, now through June 9th and get cooking this amazing Lamb Tajine.   Click here to order your Lamb Shanks.
