Hello MoFoers! Happy New Year! On Thursdays during MoFo, I'm going to talk special events. We have so many this month (well at least I do!), so it'll be great! I'll be back tomorrow veganizing ridiculous things from "Friends", so stay tuned. Today, read on to see what I made for my family and friends for the first night of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year.
L'Shana Tova U'metukah! Have a happy sweet New Year!
Whee! Another faux-year has gone by, chosen ones! Rosh Hashanah is such a good holiday. It's like regular New Year's, but better:
1) You don't have to make resolutions - in fact, you have 10 days to be as terrible as you want because on Yom Kippur you atone for that shit! (K that's not how it really works but still.)
2) You celebrate by eating apples and honey-substitute and not by drinking your face apart.
3) You don't have to worry about what huge (awful) party with lots and lots of (awful) people you'll be invited to on New Year's Eve, because you have big family dinners! Full of tons of food, wine, and yentas! So fun!
For all of you gentiles, that's all there is to know about Rosh Hashanah. Great right? You know you wanna convert.
Last night, for the first night of Rosh Hashanah, my parents hosted the dinner for my grandparents and good family friends. Of course, I made 90% of the food. Every gathering is a chance to win people over with great vegan food, people!
