Welcome to Home Shalom!

Welcome to Home Shalom and Shalom Farm. We pray your visit here be blessed. We are learning to walk in the Ways (Torah) of our Father YHWH and follow Y'shua, His Messiah until He returns to "set things straight". We call it a "Messi-Life". Our walk is neither tidy nor perfect, but it is filled with passion, devotion and desire to serve our King. We are learning to be humble servants, and to be good stewards of the things that He has entrusted to us: His Word, our marriage, our children, our family, our community, our health, and our farm. Hitch your horse and stay a while--our door is always open!

Shabbat Menu

Good Preparation Day to you!

This week is a very exciting one for us as we are planning on having a houseful this Shabbat. (I just LOVE to watch YHVH work in this way; gathering His people together so naturally/organically.) 5 (good size) families will be here. Our dear friends (the Smiths) that we try to meet with biweekly; The folks who live in the area, and are new to Torah but have been doing a Lunar Shabbat; A family we met at Messianic Keepers At Home Forum, whom we got to spend a day with at Sukkot from Alabama; And a family they have connected us with that we will meet in person for the first time. We have been emailing a lot back and forth and they are looking for community. When it rains it pours. Halleluyah! :-) The Smiths will also be staying over night to spend a work day with us here on the farm on Sunday. So we have a big weekend ahead of us. :-)

As far as the meals, two of our families are vegetarian. 3 of the 5 families are traveling form afar, we want to be sure they don't go home hungry.! :-) We will eat twice in the day and I will have vegetarian options as my dishes.

I have also decided to make our meals this week the same as the meals I am making for a meal project for another family. We are filling their pantry with wholesome organic food, for the winter. It is a big project (because they are a family of 10), so I have started I made a menu plan for the project and for the most part are eating off that menu. Preparing 4x our meal so I can eat one and pack 3 more in the freezer. This will help reduce the work load for the 4 community work days I am trying to coordinate to do the rest of the job.

I am really starting to feel a conviction about all this "preparation talk" on a linky called Shabbat. Even though I post it on prepday. I think if it I should do a prep day linky and a Shabbat linky separately! I will ponder and pray about this. :-) Your input is welcome. I know Lusi, was doing one. Hmmmm...

For this week (which I have a feeling will be my lasy menu for this list):

Erev Shabbat
Veggie Filled Meatloaf
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Salad (Homemade Dressing)
Sourdough Challah (My first attempt!)

Shabbat Breakfast
Homemade Granola (made with the sourgum we harvested during Sukkot! It is so yummy!)

Shabbat Fellowship
Raw Pickles
Bean Burritos
Raw Marinated Kale
(Salad if no one else brings one)

Havdalah Meal
Herbed Veggie Rice
Baked Zucchini
(Salad again if needed)

Sunday Breakfast (to launch our work day with friends)
Apple Rushti and Country Beef Sausage

Sunday Lunch
Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
Homemade Sour dough bread (we will be canning chicken that day!)

Sunday Evening (can't let'm go home hungry after a long day of work!)
Mama Garlic Beef Casserole

DH has written a really great post above which will also be on the Shabbat linky. (Maybe more appropriately because it is in depth reflection on His Word and ways! It is a pattern in His Word The Father has been showing Him for the last couple months. It's long...but SO WORTH IT!

Shabbat Shalom Mishpacha!
May it be sweet!

Hi, I need to visit more Torah Keeping Blogs, then maybe I'd write in my own blog more often.
Shabbat shalom,

Dear Pamela, a prep day linky, hmmm that may be a good idea, it may help me. Sounds like you've had a houseful for sure. I didn't know you were vegetarian. Personally I don't really eat much meat but some in the family like it so we compromise. Many blessings
