need ideas for Rosh Hashanah please!
I'm hosting both days as well as the night before .... I'm planning a Moroccan chicken, a more traditional chicken (served on the same day), Kasha Varnishkes, and maybe mushroom barley soup. Any other suggestions please?
Moroccan chicken sounds great - and an advance Lshana Tova to you and yours. The only thing I see so far, though, is that you're doing a grain side dish and a grain soup. Maybe you want to do a Moroccan-inspired matzo ball soup instead? You could leave the MB's plain, and doctor good rich broth with cubed tomato, harira, a dash of cinnamon, some sauteed onion...good easy sides that most people love are oven-roasted carrots and asparagus: trim, drizzle with olive oil, s&p, and roast at 400 for about 45 minutes to an hour, until tender. A BIG! green salad always goes well with this; snip in some dried dates and apricots with the other greens and vegies and use a citrus vinaigrette....
A kugel is always a good addition. But, it sounds like you already have a pasta dish. How about a sweet potato kugel or tsimmes. Always yummy and picks up on the sweet theme of the New Year! Lots of recipes on the net for both.
