What's cooking for Shavuot?
Shavuot is my favorite holiday, particularly for food. I haven't found anything new and fun yet but I'm thinking of doing a cheese fondue meal. What is everyone else up to?
I'm doing a pizza dinner, with mini pies and calzones and pizza rolls and a pizza dough ring. notice a theme? I'm also doing (gasp!) fried chicken for one of the day meals (I know, meat? what is this, Shabbat?).
I love Shavout too!! Normally I would go all out with tarts and pasta dishes and cheesecakes, etc., etc., but this year I have very limited prep time so I am sticking to a gourmet cheese platter with crudite and crostini and a bunch of salads that can be assembled on yom tov. I'll probably do one pasta dish, and maybe a fish that involved dairy in some capacity (as a sauce, maybe?)
Anyone have a great pasta dish to recommend? Something that can be prepared in advance!
So far I plan to make:
Macaroni and cheese (with béchamel, cheddar and gruyere)
Mini oreo cheesecakes
I've also purchased a lot of ice cream bars.
