What do u think of my Rosh Hashanah Menu?
Cheese Plate with Crackers-
Apples with Honey
Matzoh Ball Soup
Sweet Noodle Kugel
Plum Tart with Vanilla Ice Cream
Should I also serve a see potatoe recipe I found on CH? I sounded very good.
Any changes you would make are welcome.
Happy New Year
Get the Wolff's kasha, coarse granulation - NOT the whole - and follow the directions on the back. Use the egg as directed, use the sauteed onion and mushroom variation and you're good. Also, use stock or broth instead of water and omit the salt and pepper. I use beef broth because, for some reason, it never tastes right to me when I use chicken broth.
The ONLY thing I would do... is switch the sweet kugel for savory (and true, I like savory better)... because even though it's New Years and we're going for the sweetness of life, you've got: Apples with Honey, Sweet Noodles, Sweet Brisket, Apricot Chicken.
But that's nit picking... it sounds great.
re: Mother of four
I thought I listed it here is
1. 6 potatoes - cut into 6 or so pieces
1/4 cup oil
2 tbsp duck sauce (I use Golds Spicy Garlic)
2 tbsp apricot jam
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp black pepper
2 tsp paprika
1 tbsp soy sauce
There should be enough sauce to cover the potatoes well, and I find that sometimes the above recipe for the sauce does not make enough- if this is the case i add some more of eveyrthing to make more sauce, as the sauce burns off a little when cooking.
You simply put potatoes and mixture for sauce in a bowl, and mix very well.
I always use an aluminum pan to make these as they are extremely sticky and make for hours of soaking and cleaning a regular pot. I also spray Pam over the aluminum pan.
Bake these at 350 for an hour, turning over frequently. They will get extremely dark on top, and sauce int he corners may bur
n which is fine and normal, just dont let potatoes burn. When ready they are an extremely dark brown and potatoes are very soft. Delicious!!!!!
