Taking a break, I find milchig to be more patchkarai then fleishig.
Popa: I wonder what you’d consider “more filling”.October 10, 2011 3:34 am at 3:34 am #816101golden momMember

Doodle jump, in my house we find milchigs easier in a way. The soup and noodle dish is made before y”t, which just leaves the fish to make along with cutting veggies for the salad and plattering cheeses. Plus it’s usually plastic dishes which makes cleanup easy peesee. We just don’t get how ppl cat a PBA sized meal so late at night.October 10, 2011 4:03 am at 4:03 am #816103soliekMember

Maybe put some lemon juice in the salad dressing to make it lighter?October 10, 2011 3:21 pm at 3:21 pm #816105BaalHaboozeParticipant
LOL, Popa, you remind me of a customer I saw the other day in a pizza shop. She was, shall we say, quite on the heavy side, ordered a pie of pizza -to stay! Then she told the pizza guy, “oh, and I’ll have a DIET-PEPSI, I’m watching my weight!”
hehe, I was also “watching her weight” (increase), LOLOctober 10, 2011 3:35 pm at 3:35 pm #816106anonymrsParticipant

We have a tradition in my house that the 2nd night of Yom Tov, except for the second night of Pesach and Rosh Hashono, is milchig. I usually serve a parve vegetable soup, crustless spinach-mushroom quiche, scrambled eggs, Caesar salad with lowfat dressing, homemade and coffee with cheesecake for dessert. Simchas Torah meal is very late, usually after 11:00P.M. so no one feels like a heavy, fleishig meal.
