So when I woke up last Saturday wanting only to spend my morning in the kitchen, I knew I needed hungry reinforcements. Thank god for Shabbrunch. What is Shabbrunch, you ask? Well… allow me:
read books, and just be in the moment without too many distractions. Pretty sweet, right?
Some people definitely do not cook during Shabbat because of religious prohibitions on using electricity and “making fire” and working in general. I definitely DO cook on Shabbat though, because cooking for me is a way to re-connect, which is what Shabbat is for in the first place. For me, cooking is the farthest thing away from the regular work week because I actually don’t do it very much at all Sunday-Thursday, and when I do, it’s really not very inspired. Plus, Shabbat food is necessarily special and different than the food I eat during the work week, making it even more fun to prepare.
