L'Shana Tovah

May you all be inscribed into the book of life.

To everyone that observes the High Holy Days, I wish you a sweet New Year.

The challah dough is rising, I've herbed the turkey under the skin, the potato kugel is made, fresh apples are ready to be sliced and dipped in honey to represent the sweet new year, the ubliquitous honey cake is baked and the apple pie is ready to be baked. All that's left is to make the vegetables, take that last shower before nightfall, and dress for the holiday. Then we'll light the yartzheit candle to commerate the deaths of our relatives, light the holiday candles to start the holiday, and two days of peaceful, thoughtful times will commence.

Digg! Stumble It! JBlog Me add to kirtsy

MAN, I just want to come over for dinner! Our friend Virginia Gal is beginning her 30 days of fasting for Ramadan now, too...I love that everyone is not the same and we can still love each other. My attempts at challah, by the way, have been nowhere near as successful as your picture!

Wow, I'm hungry now.

Anytime you're in the 'hood, you're welcome to drop in for dinner. Tonight I made brisket with honey roasted potatos and glazed carrots. We had honey cake and apple pie for dessert. I love cooking so much and I don't often have the chance to cook holiday meals. There just aren't enough holidays for me! We'll have a break the fast dairy meal after Yom Kippur, which will probably consist of bagels, lox, whitefish salad, and blintzes. The kids love cherry blintzes so I'll make those for them, but I'm a tried and true cheeze blintz lover myself.

I'll send you the challah recipe I use. I do use a bread machine to make the dough, but then braid, rise, and bake it myself. For Shabbat I usually put rainbow sprinkles on it for the kids. They think that's to die for!

The only place I've ever had blintzes was at the Firebird Cafe (splendiforous Russian restaurant) in Manhattan on my honeymoon.

I'm a pretty good bread-baker, but it was the flavor when I tried Challah that was off. I may have left something out, it was very plain.
