The High Holidays are Around the Corner

The High Holidays are around the corner.  I know; I don’t believe it either.  Isn’t it still summer? The kids are still around (reminding me of the line in Pride and Prejudice, “You have delighted us long enough!”) and we don’t even have the list of school supplies.  Yet three weeks from today is Rosh HaShanah and it’s not too soon to begin menu planning.  We are putting together a great new selection of recipes for this year’s chagim but please check our indexes from 2010 and 2011 for some other great ideas. One of the things we like to do is play around with the simanim and whip up special dishes to highlight the experience. Here are some of our past favorites:

Rosh Hashanah Salad
Spiced Pumpkin Soup
Apple Challah
Leek Patties
Coconut Date Balls
Pomegranate Sweet Custard Tart

You are now well on your way to creating a sweet new year!
