Sukkot menu 2013


My menu is done. This year is a little strange since we’re in a pop up sukkah in another country, and with just a few guests – and those are all family! These holidays are another set of three days outside of Israel. We should have good news and some upheaval sometime here, which makes things a little less staid than normal, too. And with very limited meat, we’re eating more dairy than normal.

Second days – well, possibly everything, realistically, but especially second days – are a little fluid, but the things that can be made ahead are ready or scheduled (meatballs, kugels, desserts). And the things we’ll need to get this together are bought and stashed away. But don’t hold me to it, OK?

And that’s what I’ve got for this year. Some day we’ll have regular holidays, right? ūüėČ
