Happy New Year to my fellow Jewish friends! On Wednesday I took the day off of work and went home to Philly to celebrate Rosh Hashana with my family. We had a delicious dinner so I thought I would share it with all of you.
My mom decided not to cook this year so instead we ordered from a Jewish deli called Ben & Irv’s. Now I know where I get my “never feel like cooking” attitude from! All of the food was amazing so I had no problem with this.
On the Menu:
Matzoh Ball Soup
Spinach and Potato Latkes (excuse the presentation!)
Sweet Fruit Kugal (so good!)
Carrot Tzimmes with Sweet Potatoes
Kasha & Bowties
Ziggy was all ready for some chicken and matzoh balls! I started off with the matzoh ball soup mixed with mushroom barley, challah, and a pickle.
My next course was meatballs and gefilte fish. The meatballs were especially delicious.
I was already full before the chicken but still wanted to try a little bit of everything!
I barely made a dent in that plate but really loved the kugal and sweet potato side dish.
There is always room for dessert!
I tried some chocolate chip banana bread and chocolate cake! Best part of the meal! I think we are the only family that does not do the whole apples and honey thing. Woops! It was a great dinner with the family and nice to be home for the night. I went back to New York right after dinner since I had to work yesterday.
If you celebrate Rosh Hashana, what did you have at your dinner?
If you don’t celebrate, what food would you most like to try in this post?
