A Sukkot Menu From Susie Fishbein - With Shopping List!

Rice Pilaf

I hope you had a rocking Rosh Hashanah and enjoyed our Susie Fishbein menu.  Now it's time to prepare for Sukkot with Susie.  Since it's already October, I am thinking this is going to be the kind of year where we sit outside in our winter coats -- so to warm us all up, I am including a hearty seasonal soup on our menu with a fabulous Italian Focaccia. There is a tradition to eat stuffed foods on Sukkot, so we have an Apricot Almond Stuffed Chicken that is the highlight of our spectacular Susie Sukkot menu.
