Halocho #1073 - Shabbat food preparation

The Minhag is to bake one's own bread for Shabbos, thereby allowing the housewife to separate "Challah".

One should make 3 sizes: The medium sized loaf is eaten Friday night, the bigger one on Shabbat morning and the smaller one at the 3rd meal (Se'udat Shlishit).

One should taste all Shabbat food on Friday to ensure it's tasty.

One may not eat a meal after mid-afternoon on Friday, so as not to spoil one's appetite for the Friday night meal.
