Today is Rosh Hashanah! It’s the Jewish New Year, which means it’s a day of celebrating with friends and family eating sweet things to kick-start a sweet new year!
The day is usually spent eating lots of apples and honey in any combination with friends and family. Since our family is far today, we’ll be eating with some neighbors who also celebrate the day. We *might* even hear their teenage son blow the shofar, a ram’s horn, if we’re lucky!
From sweet breakfasts and desserts to savory dinners, there are so many amazing dishes you can make to celebrate. I would say my favorite is always going to be Matzo Ball soup though. It always has been and probably always will.
Tell me, what’s your favorite food to eat on Rosh Hashanah? I’d love to hear in the comments below! L’shana Tova (Happy New Year) to all who celebrate!
