As Moshe disappears high among the clouds covering Mount Sinai, the Children of Israel become afraid and construct a Golden Calf.  In this week’s parsha, Moshe returns with the tablets containing the Ten Commandments inscribed by the very hand of Hashem.  After seeing the glimmering symbol of idolatry he throws the tablets to the ground in anger.  Moshe has been betrayed (yet again) by the lack of faith of his people and furiously destroys the Golden Calf.  He begs forgiveness and Hashem gives the chosen people a second chance.  This week consider giving someone in your life a second chance, and make some food that's even better the second time around with Twice Baked and Double Stuffed Sweet Potatoes.

Rib Eye Steak

Nothing is fancier than a nice big piece of meat.  It's okay if it is not super hot when you serve it. It's quick and easy to cook, then you can keep it hot wrapped in foil, then serve with a hot sauce like this Red Wine Sauce

Double Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
