With just two weeks until the first night of Rosh Hashana, it’s time for me to face facts – the chagim are coming!
I sat down last night and made our meal plan for Rosh Hashana, doing my best to not go too crazy.
(My plans are always more ambitious that my time and energy, it seems. So, I made a real effort this year to make a plan that would be doable – without pushing me to the brink of collapse! For those of you who make bigger, fancier, more complicated meals – more power to you! Add us to your invite list next year. )
First Night of Rosh Hashana
Chicken soup with noodles
Apples & honey, rimonim
Quinoa pilaf with dried apricots & almonds
Deep dish apple pie with pareve vanilla ice cream

Apples & honey
Honey Roasted Chicken (double portion from first night)
Lemon braised leeks
