|New clothes for Rosh Hashanah|
|Gorgeous Jude in a rare smiley moment today!|
We had our Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) feast tonight, as Grace was out last night - Pomegranate Chicken with jewelled rice and Apple Crostata with a cheese crust, accompanied, of course with Rosh Hashanah round spiced raisin Challah. Round foods are traditional at Rosh Hashanah, to symbolise the cycle of the year (hence the ubiquitous apples), as are sweet foods like honey and pomegranates. The cheese based dessert may have been a little out of the ordinary for Rosh Hashanah, but it was sugar-free, so we were all able to eat it - and it was a circle! We are looking forward to having the Challah toasted tomorrow; my Rosh Hashanah Challah often ends up a little under baked, but today it was just right!

L'Shana Tova everyone!
