I’ ve been posting some of the things that I have been making, but I thought it would be fun to link to what other have been making or suggesting for the Nine Days.
Miriyummy barbecued fish on the beach (favorite line about meals during the Nine Days: “While Elsie, Foghorn Leghorn and Lambchop can all breathe a sigh of temporary relief, Nemo is on the run for his life. “
Chanie posted a super easy fish dish, plus lots of great ideas for other meals, broken down into categories like “dairy,” “meat-lovers,” “light ‘n healthy,” and “other pareve ideas.” Besides the usual Italian dairy ideas (pizza, lasagna, stuffed shells, eggplant parmesan), Chanie offered some more unusual ideas, like sushi salad, stuffed white potatoes and stuffed sweet potatoes, stuffed mushrooms, and breakfast food like French toast, pancakes and waffles. Chanie’s friend Dina posted her veggie calzones recipe.
TheKosherChannel has a whole lot of recipes and menu ideas, including ten fish recipes, Tex-Mex ratatouille, frittatas, veggie chili, and Caesar salad. What I especially loved: ideas for turning one night’s dairy meal into another meal. Leftover rice from dinner gets recycled into tomorrows stuffed peppers. Leftover roasted vegetables served with last night’s fish dinner goes into today’s pasta primavera.
Liz Kratz posted a veggie version of Pioneer Woman’s tortilla soup (plus a link to last year’s recipes).
I have also been inspired looking through the recipes posted on BCooks.
Gush Gourmet posted a yummy sounding Maple Sesame Salmon and a Tortellini Salad, plus links to other appropriate recipes, such stromboli, butternut squash deep dish pizza, asparagus and baby bella rotini, fettuccine portobella, mozzarella crusted stuffed sole, pesto halibut, cheese latkes and Greek salad.
