Scalloped Potatoes and Onions
"What do I eat before a fast," is quite a question to answer. In the Jewish calendar, there are two long fast days (25 hours without drink or food). I am now, referring to Yom Kippur, known as the Day of Atonement. It is a day of prayer and of course, no ingesting. It should be a difficult day but I never find it so. By the end, I am completely uplifted. (As a point of information, there are other shorter fasts.)
I take what we eat and drink before the fast seriously and weigh out all choices. We need fillers and we need food with little spice so that we are not thirsty. I came up with a pretty good meal, in my humble opinion, for out family and guests.
My youngest daughter made chicken in a mild duck sauce. I made the sides and salads and I bought dessert. (The latter is a secret) For one of the sides, I made this Scalloped Potatoes and Onions, originally a Taste of Home recipe. I did make some changes.
Note: there is no dairy in this but the finished product sure looks like it was made in cream. I took very few photos of any of the food, I made. It was just too hectic. I hope you can, at least, get an idea what it looked like. It was actually attractive.
Ooh, looks great!ReplyDelete
Looks delicious, Chaya! I have a family member who is somewhat Torah observant in their diet--no pork or shellfish, etc. I recently had to make a meal for visitor who was much more strict in their dietary choices, and I have to admit, if I had to cook that way all of the time I would have to rethink many of my standards, as I mix meat and dairy constantly. Any good basic (meaning very simple) Kosher cookbooks you could recommend?ReplyDelete

"Lady Autumn, Queen of the Harvest,
I have seen You in the setting Sun
with Your long auburn tresses
blowing in the cool air that surrounds You.
Your crown of golden leaves is jeweled
with amber, amethyst, and rubies.
Your long, flowing purple robe stretches across the horizon.
In Your hands You hold the ripened fruits.
At Your feet the squirrels gather acorns."
I love scalloped potatoes - they are my all time favourite comfort food. Your recipe looks and sounds deliciously warming and filling!ReplyDelete
