A quick share! I won’t be making this today but I will definitely be adding this to my list of recipes to try! 🙂

Rounding up the Week

Shabbat Shalom! I hope you have all had a great week!

I am finishing up the week with debilitating backache, so I haven’t managed to get all the work I wanted to do done (and my husband has had to cook the shabbat meal! Thankfully I had everything prepared so it was just a matter of putting everything in the oven, but I am very grateful nevertheless!)

Following the post about the Japanese recipe, ‘Doria’, I did a little bit of googling about the interesting similarity between Japanese and Hebrew script, and I turned up this interesting article: http://originalbuddhajones.blogspot.co.uk/2008/09/old-japanese-words-have-hebrew-origin.html

and this video (in Japanese, with some English subtitles.)

I’m sure that, if you had time to research, it would be an interesting study.

We are facing the storm ‘Brigid’ this weekend, which is set to hit the west coast of Cornwall, so I’m praying it won’t be the storm of ‘apocalyptic’ proportions that the American weather forecasters are suggesting, but rather the little bit of wind and rain that the British forecasters have mentioned. 🙂

Have a great Shabbat!

 

Review of the Week

Shalom!

Having moved house, and with the new secular year starting, I haven’t quite managed to get into the swing of a new routine yet. I haven’t done much baking or cooking in my new kitchen yet, but we did manage to celebrate a low-key Hanukkah after we moved in with the help of the fantastic kosher delivery service provided by Titanics in Manchester.

I am baking bread in the bread machine today, but it’s not quite challah. It shall be my goal this coming week to get the kitchen in order so I feel comfortable and confident about baking in there.

I feel as though I am fighting a bit of a losing battle with the clutter, although I know I am winning the war, it is just going very slowly. As I mentioned in my previous post, although we have a bigger house we are without a garage or shed, and not allowed to use the loft in this rental property (is that normal?!) so I really want to sort out, de-clutter, streamline and minimise. In short, to make the most of the space, I want to ‘downsize’ our possessions.

I have discovered that I achieve much more when I have a goal or a deadline, and accountability definitely helps.

What about you? Do you set yourself goals every day? every week? every month? every year? How do you manage to reach your goals, and how do you provide accountability?

I would love to hear from you!

Wishing you a productive Preparation Day, and a restful, blessed Shabbat.

Shabbat Shalom!
