Rosh Hashanah prep, PI

kassrachel does her prep right - she concentrates on the spiritual aspects.

I do the practical stuff. It's lots easier. :)

So. I have a holiday coming up. That means new clothes, something we usually honor in the breach, and food. But this time, I needed the new clothes.

Today, I got the food. The menus for the upcoming holiday are as follows:

Friday Night:

"Good luck" foods: apples dipped in honey, pomegranates, fish. Each has a special meaning for the new year, like sweetness, children and success.

Baked chicken with thyme and lemon.
Steamed carrots
potato kugel
green salad

round challahs


Mesclun salad with goat cheese, pecans and pears.
Wine, challah rolls.

Saturday night dinner:
Homemade alphabet soup with cheese
baked sea bass over vegetables
sugar free ice cream
round challah, wine

Sunday Lunch:

Leftovers from dinner, if any, or omelets.

I'm making the soup now, except for the alphabet noodles, to be reheated Saturday night. The fish will be purchased tomorrow and arranged over the veggies, and kept covered in the fridge until after full dark on Saturday night, when I will slide it into the oven, obeying the laws of cooking on a holiday. After I get that ready, I'll make the dishes for the meat meal. It's all very simple because I do nothing hard. I even bought the potato kugel.
