In this week's parsha, Moses floats along the Nile river in a reed basket, rescued by the kindness of Pharaoh’s daughter. It has become a custom for many to serve pigs in a blanket to symbolize the baby in a blanket. Last year we used asparagus in a blanket, but this year we will do hot dogs in a potato blanket.
This year we are sharing our spin on a traditional Jewish deli food menu starting with pigs in a blanket and a yummy SPLIT PEA SOUP (this recipe is made quickly in a pressure cooker, but would work fine on the stove top for a longer time).
Instead of traditional corned beef we like this more elegant version for Shabbat dinner cooked in wine.
Let's replace mashed potatoes with healthier sweet potatoes and make it a little fancy with quince and a little whipping action.
No mayo slaw is the way to go, but if you want the classic coleslaw go ahead.
A Jewish deli dinner must end with either our version black and white cookies in a cupcake or chocolate rugelach, try these chocolate pistachio version for a fun twist.
