Putting the Parsha on the Menu: Toldot

In this week's parsha, Toldot, Esav asks Yaakov to "give me some of that red, red, stuff" and sells his birthright for a bowl of lentil soup.

Thus, our menu for Parshat Toldot includes lentil salad (quick cheat: prepare lentils and add a container of salsa to taste), lentils added to the cholent, and we have "lentil soup cupcakes" and fruit bowls to supplement dessert.

The plan is to make Lentil soup cupcakes are made from yellow cake mix with a few red food coloring drops, dipped in melted chocolate to make the "bowl" once the cupcakes have cooled.

I'm attempting also to make some waffle cone bowls, that I plan use to serve red fruits and berries (strawberries and raspberries, perhaps apple crumble with cranberries, time permitting) with optional whipped topping for those not counting calories.

(I'll try to update this post with pictures when/if the food's ready for photographing before candle lighting time.)
