So. Rosh HaShanah (as well as Sukkot and Shemini Atzert/Simchat Torah) all abut Shabbat this year, making them three-day holidays. That means planning for six meals.
Mom, her husband, my brother, my new stepbrother and his wife.
Chicken noodle soup
Challah, wine, soda, coffee
Dairy: omelette, fruit salad, french fries.
Us. Family of four (including teen-age son.)
Honey cake/pareve ice cream
Out with friends.
Us plus two guests.
Tuna and salad
Leftover turkey/stuffing/broccoli kugel
Right now - I bought everything pretty much everything but the fresh fruit, the kugels and the desserts. I have the soup and the fish cooking. The turkey is defrosting. I'm doing pretty much all the real cooking on Wednesday - the stuffing, the beef stew, the turkey, the noodles for the soup and the carrots.
