“H-shem, our G-d, spoke to us in Horeb, saying, “You have had much dwelling by this mountain.” (Devarim 1:6)

This parsha describes the different journeys and battles of the Jewish people. It mentions different mountains where different events took place. One of my favorite stories is the story we know that is briefly mentioned in this parsha. About how Og, the king of the Bashan, wanted to destroy the Jewish people so he lifted a mountain to throw onto them. Thankfully he did not succeed and ended us having the mountain around his neck and Moses stuck him in the ankle and Og died. So this week I made Mountain Chocolate Dipped Strawberries. After a very hot week here in my neck of the woods I am glad to end our Shabbos meal with a delicious and refreshing dessert. Enjoy! Recipe follows:

2 pints strawberries, cleaned and patted dry
1 bag chocolate chips

Over a double broiler slowly heat the chocolate. Once the chocolate is melted, dip strawberries into chocolate and set dipped strawberries on a parchment lined baking sheet. Store in refrigerator until you are ready to enjoy.
