L'Shana Tova JBs!
 
Tonight is the start of Rosh Hashanah, which is the Jewish New Year.

I didn't make it back to Montreal to celebrate with family this year- too much going on (reno, work) and I was just there a month ago...

But I'm missing the big family meal (today is a dd for me) and the traditions (which I can partake of tomorrow): an apple dipped in honey to symbolize a sweet new year, a round challah (um... Same?)..

I even took out the ingredients to bake a honey cake with my Mom's favourite recipe :)

So, it's fitting that I'm recommitting to JUDDD, since its a time for some new things and ending old things, letting those bad habits go, letting the stress go..., and I just wanted to say hi :hiya: to everyone, and wish everyone well (even if you don't celebrate) ;)

:hugs:

L'Shana Tova Soren! It's wonderful to be able to partake in your traditions, so many of which center around family and food.

I was introduced to apple dipped in honey by a friend years ago - what a lovely symbol, and tasty too!

I'm glad you're back with us regularly friend!

L'Shana Tova to all my buds too. Hope everyone has a happy and healthy new year. I missed the family getting together this year too since my parents are in the process of moving to Florida.

Sorry you missed the family dinner. Perhaps in 5775 you will be together.

I hope you enjoyed your celebration today, Soren. :) That holiday is unfamiliar to me, but it sounds lovely.

You guys make me smile :D
I won't miss it next year, and i hopefully won't miss passover either.

My lighter version of the honey cake came out well. Saved about 100 calories per slice, wit a couple small subs.
Will blog about it soon!

:)
:hugs: thanks for all the :heart:
