Rosh Hashana menu

I’ve really been procrastinating this year about putting my Rosh Hashana menu down on paper.  I usually keep holidays relatively simple, knowing that people aren’t really in the mood for heavy meal followed by heavy meal.  But somehow this year I started intimidating myself with thoughts of trying out lots of new and impressive sounding recipes, and that left me feeling too tired at the thought to even do anything! So it wasn’t until Sunday that I finally put pen to paper to decide what we’ll be having.

Here’s the basic list:

  • Round challahs
  • simanin/symbolic foods of Rosh Hashana:pomegranate, apples and honey, fresh dates, carrots, fish, squash, (forgot to buy leek), beets
  • chicken
  • potato kugel
  • sweet potato casserole
  • tzimmes (carrot/yam/apple) kugel
  • onion kugel
  • potato knishes (dough from this recipe)
  • roasted butternut squash
  • rosemary potatoes
  • stuffed peppers
  • pomegranate salad
  • fruity rice salad
  • crouton salad
  • avocado salad (still deciding on what recipe to use)
  • apple cake – we made a lot of small pans of this to give all of the neighbors in our building
  • rugelach
  • apple plum compote
