….but sanity is so much nicer. And almost everyone we know is going away.
I present my Rosh Hashana menu, 21 hours away.
Apple Cinnamon Challah (c/o FunkyFrum)
Maple-Ginger Butternut Squash Soup
Chicken (preparation TBD)
Roasted New Potatoes/Baked Sweet Potatoes (Miss M, she’s all about the sweets)
Oatmeal Raisin Cookies (from the freezer)
Vaguely southwestern bean salad
Plum cake (from the freezer)
Gazpacho (from the freezer)
Roasted green beans
Wednesday brunch for lunch (guests who also are up at the crack of dawn):
“CSA frittata” with chard, onion, and red pepper
Pumpkin pancakes (courtesy of B and the burner we will leave on to cook them)
Green salad (conveyed by our guests)
It would be such a piece of cake to take care of everything unfinished tomorrow if Miss M, who needs my attention pretty much 1000% of the time of late, were in school. Alas. I think a trip to the library is in order first thing–for movies! movies! movies!
Can I just say that I am convinced that at least 10% of the Jewish population of NYC was at Fairway Uptown today? We even saw friends who have moved to New Jersey and Westchester! Craziness.
Shana tova u’metukah. If you need me, I will be in the kitchen, longing for my bed.
