Rosh Hashana

Recommended Posts

I just realized that Rosh Hashana is less than 2 weeks away. What are you planning?

Does anybody do big lunches or just dinners? If so, anything different being served for lunch?

Pam, I followed your lovely tutorial and made kreplach:

We made half with chicken, half with faux chicken. Delicious. My friend tasted the filling after we ground it, and declared that it tasted like Jewish.

deensiebat, I'm so glad you tried and liked them. They look perfect -- I love that dough recipe.

In the end I went to family for both dinners. When I was a kid we always had big lunches -- my grandparents lived across the street from the synagogue and everybody would gather there after morning services. Now, we only do dinners. So while I didn't cook anything (at home -- lots of cooking going on at work), I was still lucky enough to have chicken soup, brisket, turkey, chicken, brisket, cabbage rolls, knishes, kasha, chicken soup, honey cake and much more.

Though today isn't officially Rosh Hashana (and is actually a fast day), I just mixed up a yeast dough and will fill it with apples, cinnamon and honey, then roll and bake it tonight as a Rosh Hashana treat. I like to think of the whole week between RH and Yom Kippur as a holiday. :wink:

Rosh Hashanah dinner with friends (they hosted with a combo of cooked from scratch, bought, cooked from box dishes).  Brisket was home made and delicious.  Balducci was involved.  Manischewitz was definitely involved.  The company was great.

I wound up hosting unexpectedly, Mom found out she had a fractured foot on Friday. She directed Dad on making brisket on Saturday, chicken on Sunday, and brought them to my house...brisket sliced in her crock pot for transport and reheat. I made a simple salad heavy on the radiccio, garnished with some orange sections. Tahini-maple dressing. Challah. Steamed green beans with butter and everything bagel seasoning. Noodle kugel made with dried apricots and ricotta (everyone agreed it was better than cottage cheese). Uncle brought chocolate babka and rainbow cookies (Jewish/Italian bakery!).

Challah.

Moroccan carrot salad (cooked carrots, paprika, cumin, caraway, olives, parsley, garlic, olive oil).

Georgian style green beans, with eggs, cream and feta, walnuts.

Roast beef.

Plenty of wine.

Apples with honey for dessert.
