I haven't figured out my pre-fast menu, but I am going to share my post-fast menu, since I already planned that one!
Fruit Salad (using whatever fruits I have in the house - mostly apples and plums, that we managed to find for under 5 NIS/kg. So many fruit prices have skyrocketed lately, and the quality is questionable too, so we've had to skimp a bit on fruit, sadly. We love fruit. Hopefully there is something else here to jazz this up. Maybe I'll hide away that last cluster of grapes I just spotted!)
Homemade Whole Wheat Sesame Bagels, with cream cheese (well, shamenet with the whey drained off. Is that cream cheese?), tomatoes, cucumbers...
Split Pea Soup (? I hope. The store had NO carrots or celery, and I ALWAYS put carrots and celery in my split pea soup. Maybe I can find a substitute?)
Honey Cake, of course! (I have one in the freezer for this occasion)
Now, to plan the pre-fast meal...
I'm open to ideas!
What are you making for Pre- and Post-Yom Kippur?
