It’s hard to believe that it’s been a week since the bar mitzvah. Of course, we’re still eating our way through the leftovers, and MAG is busy enjoying every minute of thank-you-note writing </sarcasm>. But overall, life is more or less back to normal.
For those of you who were unable to join us in person, here is a look at the Friday night meal (i.e. the seudat leil Shabbat, for the Hebraically-oriented among you).
As some of you know, we followed the model we had used for the CTO’s bar mitzvah (which was based on reader MB’s bar mitzvah model) – namely, I did the Friday night meal (with lots of help from various family members) as well as seudah shlishit, and we had Shabbat lunch and the melave malka catered.
Friday night menu
- Appetizer: Potato burekas with mushroom sauce
- Main course: Brisket; schnitzel; potato kugel; mushroom rice; green beans with almonds; lettuce salad; copper carrot salad
- Dessert: Assorted cakes and cookies; taiglach; jelly beans; tea
Recipes available upon request.
Here’s how the room looked set up for Friday night. (These pictures were taken before the flowers were added.)
Have a good week from all of us here at Our Shiputzim!
