Menu for a Sukkot Party 2012

Sukkot 2012 012-3

Tomorrow marks the last day of the annual month long group of holidays that usher in the Jewish New Year.  This year flew by, but all things considered it was a lot of eating and a lot of cooking.  Starting with two nights of Rosh Hashanah on September 16th, two lunches, and then Shabbat dinner on the September 21st; next I brought two cakes to the Yom Kippur breakfast at auntie Francine’s; and Friday night another Shabbat dinner on September 28th.  Sukkot started on September 30th, I gave a small dinner party (grilled steak and Persian rice); Monday night we dined at cousin Pegi’s, I contributed brisket, and two cakes, and finally Wednesday night October 3rd was my big hurrah party with all of the cousins, 23 people.  I created a huge dairy buffet to break the pace of meat, chicken, lamb, and turkey!

Shabbat Friday October 5th and one more round of Sunday and Monday holiday nights and now we can all go on a diet!  As of last Wednesday I had managed to keep the weight gain to a reasonable amount but all of that stuff in my home is just too tempting, the great give away has begun.  I give some to my cooking helper and clean up person, some to my husband’s secretaries, some to the kids and their roommates.  I try to load everyone up with care packages of dessert at the end of the evening.  Finally I will be able to turn off the extra refrigerator (the third refrigerator), that old restaurant electricity guzzler.

To get back to my dairy, vegetarian, feast. I will list the menu and plan to post some of the recipes that are new within the coming weeks.  Many of the recipes are already on my site and I will link them so you can find them easily.

I was just about to hit the Submit button when I noticed that Judee wrote virtually the same as what I was going to say. So I will just say, “what she said!”
