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 Plan

This Shabbat we will be heading to Alabama! Its not as far as it sounds, its only about an hour and a half. Whenever we go a distance for fellowship on Shabbat, we like to be sure the car is gassed up, fluids checked, etc. on Friday so it is ready to go. (We actually had new tires put on it yesterday! Thank goodness, that doesn't have to happen too often!) We usually pack "car food" and we always take our stainless water bottles full. We also prepack the car with whatever we may need for the trip (like lawn chairs, or a stroller or pack and play, Shabbat tub for the kids, make sure the IPOD has the teaching on it we want to hear, etc.)We always take food to contribute to one or two meals while we are there. As a family of 8, this becomes standard. This lightens our "impact" where ever we go, on who ever may be the hostess. We want to be a blessing,(not a burden) where ever we go. I always make enough to feed my family and theirs. That way their is always more food than we need and I can leave some behind too. :-) We have learned to space our "away Shabbats" and limit them to only 1 or 2 per month as a rule. They do take a little extra "doing" but when we prepare ahead, the time a away and fellowship and opportunities for "iron sharpening iron" makes the effort WELL WORTH IT.

My Menu Plan
Prep Day Lunch:
Snacky Lunch (Sliced apples, peanutbutter, sliced cheese, crackers and oranges)

Erev Shabbat:
Grilled Chicken
Mamma's Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Steamed Broccoli
Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream garnished with a Shortbread Cookie

Shabbat Breakfast:
Thermos Cream of Brown Rice Cereal w/ Apples and Cinnamon

Shabbat Main Meal:
Empanadas, two kinds - Black Bean, Grilled corn and Rst Red Bell Pepper & Spinach, Garlic and Sheep's Feta (These take a a little "doing" because of the rolling, cutting and filling, but there great to take places and are good at room temp. So I made them on Thursday to help ease the burden.)

Salad with Casa Dressing (a creamy Mexican style dressing)

(My hostess, is making Shepards' Pie /with lamb, Taco Soup and Salad)

Returning home to Pot Roast in the slow cooker.

If anyone wants recipes. Just request them I will post them.

May your preparations be blessed!
