    Your menu sounds great, I may ‘borrow’ some ideas. May I bother you for some recipes, please, mainly simanim soup, chamin, jachnun and spinach kugel.

    Thank you

      Hi Ailuy!

      I put up the link to the spinach kugel recipe. The soup is something that I’ll have to figure out – I don’t have a recipe, but I will modify a soup to make it work. I can try to post my jachnun recipe (bli neder), and the chamin is what we have on hand. It’s a little different each time.
