Rosh Hashanah Sneak Peek

This year Rosh Hashanah falls on my grandmother's birthday.  For Rosh Hashanah, she usually has everyone over her house for a New Year's luncheon.  And for her birthday, she usually takes us all out to dinner.  This year I wanted to give her something special for her birthday and make Rosh Hashanah less stress for her.  This year to celebrate her 84th birthday and ring in the year 5771 I will be catering the family celebration at my grandmother's condo.

Here is a sneak peek at the menu for Rosh Hashanah/Grandma's Birthday

Carrot Soup

Moroccan Orange Salad
Vegetable Couscous Salad

Sole Rolled With Veggies (this was originally going to be a potato encrusted sole to use up the surplus potatoes I have, but I think this will stay moister during transport)
Soy Orange Glazed Chicken Legs

Roasted String Beans
Sweet Noodle Kugel
Salt & Pepper Kugel

Honey Apple Cake
Fresh Fruit

I am also going to make Steamy Kitchen's No Knead Challah (just plain because it has to be a nut free meal).

I think this will be my new Rosh Hashanah e-card...

Ess Eppis and Shana Tova!
SHANA TOVA (שנה טובה) means 'Good Year' in Hebrew.  It's a common greeting during Rosh Hashanah, the celebration of the Jewish New Year - following the Hebrew calendar.


  1. Shana Tova Amy, thanks for sharing your menu and that great video...I can't wait for my daughter to wake up in the morning to show her.
