Final post today (maybe):

The seudah was a success, if I do say so myself. The first course was completely storebought - Israel salad (diced tomatoes, onions and cucumbers in a lemon juice and olive oil dressing), babaganoush (puree'd smoked eggplant and garlic), garlic hommous and turkish salad (spicy tomato salad), with pita bread. The second was lamb stew over couscous - not too sweet and scented just right with cumin, and quite rich, and we ended it with cut fruit, also purchased. We had a lovely cabernet sauvignon that we'd discovered in Israel a couple years ago, and herbal tea at the end.

My brother and our guest had met before, so it was all very nice and relaxed, even when people popped up to give us mishloach manot. We managed to recycle a lot of the sweet stuff.

You make me want to eat lamb, even though I'm not eating meat for lent- all the food you make always sounds so good. I'm glad it was a success:)
