Jamie's Birthday Shabbat Menu - Joy of Kosher

Happy Birthday to me and all the other Memorial Day weekend babies out there. Growing up this is when we'd open the pool and BBQ our hearts out. Nowadays we BBQ year round in Israel and have no pool although that would be super helpful in Beit Shemesh. (Beit Shemesh translates to house of the sun which translates to hot Hot HOT!). Having been born on a holiday weekend I got used to the extended 3+ day birthday parties and I'm thrilled to bring that custom to my married life with Shabbos birthday celebrations, cause one day is just never enough.

This goes out to the entire fam cause we eat caramelized onions like they're going outta style and the simple addition of them to my mash makes everyone call after Shabbos for the recipe.
