Guess What I Made?

Monday, 3 October 2011

Before

With encouragement from my #Twitpacha, I successfully baked my first-ever round challah to adorn our holiday table.

~ Menu ~
Round challah
Apples dipped in honey (…for Rosh HaShanah!)
*Chicken Soup with K’neidlach
Brisket
Saffron Rice
Sauted Asperagus
Sparkling Pomegranate Limeade
MamaBear’s, z”l, Apple Cake

~ Guests ~
PC
Frume Sarah (aka The Reluctant Balebusta)
Beernut
Poppyseed
Peach
PepGiraffe
Ace
Bette

~ Shehechiyanu Moment ~
We used our china for the. first. time.

~ Major Discovery ~
We only received four soup bowls for our wedding. Which went unnoticed until Pepgiraffe and I set the table. Oops.

~ Verdict ~
Much to my surprise, I loved preparing the holiday meal. My home smelled warm and inviting, our table was filled with family, and I thought the food was delicious.

What about your Rosh Hashanah dinner? Did you make the meal or were you guests at someone else’s table? What was on the menu??

    So glad you were able to use that legendary china. I bet it’s great being so close to so many of your siblings.
    I hope there’s many more such gatherings!

      Keyn y’hi ratzon!!!

      It was such a great feeling to use the dishes. And to be with most of my sibs.

    Everything sounds delicious. We had matzah ball soup, which was delicious. My parents are religious at all, so I tend to do this Jewish thing on my own.

      It can certainly be a challenge when our religious expression does not match those around us. Glad that your soup made the start to your year warm and delicious.

    Mazel tov on your holiday dinner! It sounds like a fabulous menu, and that sparkling pomegranate limeade sounds delish! Happy you enjoyed the saffron rice. The Reluctant Balebusta shouldn’t be so reluctant with a meal like that on the table… ;)

      Your support means a lot!!!

      It really is a minor miracle that I was able to pull together such a yontiv table given my lack of experience in the domestic arena.

    My challah didn’t rise. It got relegated to the trash. But I made a delicious roasted chicken Israeli couscos with sugar snap peas, and roasted asparagus. A lot of food for my ‘lil guy and me, but oh-so-yummy.

    The menu sounds amazing and look at that gorgeous challah!!!!!! Color me impressed. I can only imagine how your house smelled delish and chag-esque. Shana tova by the way, my virtual friend. :)
