L’shana Tova ~ Apples + Honey

We’re a mixed faith family here at FoodieTots, and as the non-Jewish spouse I’ve had a lot of fun over the past years learning about Jewish culinary traditions. Rosh Hashana, which falls right in the peak of the fall harvest, brings honey-dipped apples and other sweet treats to start the new year. Wishing those of you who celebrate a peaceful respite from the daily grind … and a happy harvest to the rest of you!

Tonight’s dinner menu:

  • apples, pears, challah + honey*
  • matzo ball soup
  • gelfite fish + horseradish
  • quinoa with apricots + pepitas
  • lemon roasted zucchini + carrots*
  • maple-glazed roasted salmon*
  • homemade plum ice cream*
  • sokol blosser evolution wine (oregon)

* = locally-sourced

    What – no Manischewitz? How did L handle that?

    Our menu was apples and honey, chicken with roast potatoes and carrots and brussel sprouts and green beans tossed with browned garlic and lemon juice.

    @ Jill – Eh, Manischewitz is just for Passover. That’s the suffering holiday, right? :) Mmm, brussel sprouts and garlic.
