When I have a lot of cooking like I do today, I often prepare a chart to add up how many of each vegetable I need to prepare. Today, the day before the two-day holiday of Rosh Hashanah, I got the idea of making it into a spreadsheet, and Leora suggested I blog about it.
I was able to embed it right into this post using Google Docs. (If you can’t see it, click here.)
The top row shows each vegetable (or fruit, in the case of lemons). Subsequent rows show the name of the dish on the left, and the number of each vegetable needed. Vegetable totals are calculated in the bottom row
You should also see updates as (if) I make them. The stir-fry and some of the rice was tonight’s dinner. Cholent is the sabbath stew. I think I will be skipping the potato kugel, and the baking was done a few days ago.
I guess my mother isn’t the only one who likes to make charts.
