Rosh Hashana

Rosh Hashana is Sunday night.

I am so not ready, but I'm trying.

I do not want to be in the kitchen all week, so I'm *trying* to keep it simple. My menu is far from gourmet, so if you're looking for gourmet, you're going to have to look somewhere else!

Here's the plan:

Pareve Foods: 

Round Honey Challot (hopefully I'll get the round weaving thing!!)

Split pea soup (I happen to still have a lot of split peas in the house...)

Maple-roasted pumpkin (my girls LOVED it last Shabbat!)

Apple Kugel (already made)

Roasted potatoes


Grilled zucchini

Toasted Barley with mushrooms (I have some frozen, sliced mushrooms I got on sale a LONG time ago hanging out in the freezer)

I'm making at least one milchig meal -

Spinach lasagna

Some sort of quiche - we'll see what is affordable later in the week


Honey Cake (already made)


Molasses Cookies

Apple Pie

Now, I just need to print this out, hang it up on the fridge, and get to work! Some of these things I will double or triple so we have for other meals as well...

Of course, we'll be having apples and honey, and a new fruit as well.

Shana Tova!

Please let me know what you're making!


  1. Round weaving thing: talk to yourself. Set up the four strands shti va'erev. then go around clockwise: a strand that is on the bottom goes OVER the strand to the right of it. When you have come full circle, take the strand you put down first (when going clockwise) and bring it over or under the strand counter-clockwise to it, depending on whether it was over or under last time it was used. It's simple over and under. For the first successfull batch, just do clockwise one and couterclockwise once and call it a day. Later, you can go back and forth four or five times.

    1. Thanks! I watched a couple tutorials, so hopefully I've got the technique straight in my head...
