I’m bugged. (Or should say was bugged)
Can I say that?
The other day I was thinking about all the holidays that are coming up and what that means for menu planning. This logic led me down memory lane to all the food my Grandma and Great-Grandma Lever used to cook. I haven’t had food like that since my beloved Great-Grandma passed away.
Why? BECAUSE MY MOM AND AUNT NEVER LEARNED TO COOK THAT WAY AND THEREFORE NEVER PASSED IT DOWN.
For years, I’ve searched for recipes in cookbooks that resembled the foods that donned the table from my childhood, but I’ve always struck out. Until now…..
Two days ago, I headed to the library. I went because I’ve decided to embark upon the Mediterranean diet and needed a book to help, but that’s another post. Anyway, while searching the cookbook aisle I found this….
And, OMG! I found them. I found recipes that remind me of Great-Gram’s house. So, I have bought the book.
Cooking here I come! Noodle dishes, breads, glazed-anything-vegetable sides, roast chicken, brisket, roasted potatoes (which sound easy but I’ve never been able to master w/o a recipe) and desserts to spare.
Perhaps, I’ll even throw a Rosh Ha-Shanah dinner party complete with table cloths and folded napkins. Of course, this means I’ll need to buy a table cloth and fabric napkins, but doesn’t that sound fun? Best of all, you’re invited.
So stay tuned! And, don’t worry…Teshuvah is coming via post. It appears I’ve caught the bug my kids had (from previous post) and have been down for the count. But, tonight is Shabbat and rest will do wonders!
