do you eat milichig meals or just kidushJune 1, 2011 5:46 pm at 5:46 pm #775860
I heard a reason not to eat milchig meals, rosh hashana there isn’t when to eat, yom kipur we don’t eat succos there isn’t where to eat, peasach there isn’t what to eat, so shavaus I have where and what to eat and I shall eat milichigs,! you crazy!June 1, 2011 6:42 pm at 6:42 pm #775861
only milchigs for the first nightJune 1, 2011 6:50 pm at 6:50 pm #775862
We have some milchig meals and some fleishig meals.
I have no doubt that someone will come along and start yelling “ain simcha ele b’basar v’yayin” or the like and feel the need to tell me that I’m doing something wrong… but I really don’t care.
Guess what? We sometimes have milchig/pareve meals on other Yomim Tovim too.

cmon what about a giten stickel buser?June 1, 2011 10:46 pm at 10:46 pm #775864
we could eat milchigs all year – here’s our excuse for fleishigs!!! we once ate somewhere and they served pizza shavuos day – it was pretty humorous, my husband had a panic attack, I had to whisper to him that I had meat at home and he could eat it after!June 1, 2011 11:40 pm at 11:40 pm #775865

I have been a vegetarian (with eggs, milk, cheese and limited fish) for many years. I find no simcha in eating meat at all and so I don’t eat it. Wine is nice, though.
I love to cook and find special joy in cooking for Shabbos and Yom Tov. There are some fantastic traditional Sephardic dishes, but also so many national cuisines. I specialize in Indian food and when I have the chance to make that for Yom Tov is it very special to me (and very much enjoyed by the family). Cooking for eight is a bit of a challenge, I admit.
Try making palak paneer or shahi paneer for Shavuos.June 2, 2011 1:17 am at 1:17 am #775867
So this is the same topic re-re visited.
Looks like the subject line of some emailsJune 2, 2011 1:40 am at 1:40 am #775868
i thought this would have some menu ideas for yomtov, anyone have any good and easy ideas?June 2, 2011 1:57 am at 1:57 am #775869
me too 🙁June 2, 2011 2:03 am at 2:03 am #775870
You aren’t living up to your name.
There are lots of things that I’m not living up to.

WolfishMusings, WOAH, why are you so defensive.
We make a Milichig Kiddush and then have a fleishig meal afterwards.June 2, 2011 5:43 pm at 5:43 pm #775872
WolfishMusings, WOAH, why are you so defensive.
I am not being defensive. If I were defensive, I would have said something along the lines of “We have milchig meals and if you’re going to say that it’s forbidden, my reasoning for doing so anyway is X, Y and Z.” Defensive implies a defense. I made no such defense.
My response was along the lines of “We eat milchigs on Shavuous (and other Yomim Tovim) and if you think it’s assur, too bad.” That is not a statement of defense. It’s a statement of indifference.

and no I did not type all this up for this thread.June 2, 2011 6:12 pm at 6:12 pm #775875
Wow, very gourmet!
To me some of the dishes dont go together but individually they sound great, enjoy!June 2, 2011 7:28 pm at 7:28 pm #775876
Sac, thanks for the gourmet compliment. I try. I tried to shove a lot of dairy together, if thats what you mean by some dishes not going together. I can also see the tzimmes with the chicken marsala( but I want to use it since it has been in the freezer since Pesach). But for the most part I think they do. May I ask what you mean just for critique?.June 2, 2011 7:44 pm at 7:44 pm #775877
(Dont hate me k?)
The beet soup doesnt really go w the rest of the menu (switch it out for a gazpacho?), and I dont think you needed the added starch/carb of the mash. Otherwise that nite sounds amazing!
I wouldnt change anything. I usually stick to a specific cuisine when I cook, but not everyone is as neurotic as me 🙂
Def the tzimmes would go, but you said you needed to use it.
Does the Eggplant Italiano have tomato sauce? I was thinking that if it did then it would be a lot of tomato sauce w the Ratatouille on the same plate.
I think the main thing is that you mix modern and ‘old world’ foods in the same menu and thats whats throwing me. Either way, great menu!June 2, 2011 8:36 pm at 8:36 pm #775878
sender- foods sound heaven. can i come?June 2, 2011 8:43 pm at 8:43 pm #775879
Sender Av~ your menus sound amazing!! kol hakavod 🙂June 2, 2011 8:57 pm at 8:57 pm #775880
Sac: Beet soup can be switched for the green borcsht, schav, which is best done milchig.
getsl1, your quote sounds eerily like the es is shver tzu zein a Yid, which Reb Moshe zkl railed against. On Rosh Hashana, try davening with a netz minyan, or a minyan that is makpid not to eat before shofar, and also makpid that people should do kiddush bmakom seudah before chatzos. On Pesach, there is plenty to eat if you look a bit beyond meat and potatoes. Two parts whimsy and one part skill, and you can cook up a Pesach storm with plain foods plainly prepared.June 2, 2011 9:18 pm at 9:18 pm #775881
Night: The standard whole grain challah with tehina and chumus
Baked ziti spiffed up to be ole al shulchan melachim (tomato

Low fat cheese cake in whole wheat and cormeal crust.
Guaranteed to leave nobody hungry.

Schav with sour cream, chopped leek,cucumber and boiled
potato. Ice cream. Same guarantee as the night.June 3, 2011 2:15 am at 2:15 am #775882
sac, I dont hate. No need to worry. I like to get opinions. Adorable, sure!, you probably live nowhere near me, but send me your address and I’ll mail you a plate( better yet I can email you a cyberplate). Always, thanks. I try.June 3, 2011 8:58 pm at 8:58 pm #775883
Ok sac, I switched the ratatouille with green beans. Now, I am making the ratatouille for Shabbos. Approved?June 3, 2011 8:59 pm at 8:59 pm #775884
twisted: okra? You’re either sephardi or southern…or both.?June 5, 2011 6:11 am at 6:11 am #775885
Great choice, definitely approve!June 5, 2011 7:50 pm at 7:50 pm #775886
No, Sender Av, ashkenazi New Yawker transplanted to Jerusalem. I did first encounter okra in the genteel South though. I don’t like it for itself, but it’s mucous like innards are great for sauce base, or just to lubricate a dish. The little cartwheels from slicing are also nice eye-catchers in medleys like salads or rice mixesJune 5, 2011 8:20 pm at 8:20 pm #775887
Twisted, I always saute okra with some onions and brown sugar, and parprika. I then let it get tender and add a can of diced tomatoes and season and cook for about 25 min on simmer. Just a suggestion. I stopped making it because canned tomatoes started to give me headaches.June 5, 2011 8:47 pm at 8:47 pm #775888
” I specialize in Indian food and when I have the chance to make that for Yom Tov is it very special to me (and very much enjoyed by the family).”
We do Indian food at least once a week. For last Friday night, I cooked Pancha Dal (five different kinds of lentils in one pot), a Jewish-Indian fish curry, and lemon rice. We also had a Jewish-Indian tomato salad. For at least one of the Shavuot meals my wife is cooking masala dosa. 🙂June 5, 2011 10:16 pm at 10:16 pm #775889
Ok sac, I switched the ratatouille with green beans. Now, I am making the ratatouille for Shabbos. Approved?
Ratatouille? It’s a peasant dish.June 10, 2011 4:08 pm at 4:08 pm #775890
Heh… in the end, we ended up having four pareve or milchig meals. We had one meal (Wednesday night) planned for fleishigs, but we decided that:
a. We had plenty of leftovers from the first two meals
b. We didn’t want to start cooking fleishigs at 9:00pm.
So, we decided to save the chicken for Shabbos and instead have all milchig or pareve.
