I am finally posting some pictures from our family Yom Teruah Festival for 2013.
Food Theme: Family Favorites
Breakfast: Cinnamon Crumb Bars made with homemade caramel sauce, Turkey Maple Sausage, Watermelon Fruit Bowl & Eggs – this was the my first time making a watermelon bowl! I will do this again for Festival of Weeks next time when the summer fruit is at it’s best!
Lunch: Pretzel Dogs, Lamb Burgers, Veggie Platter – the Preztel Dogs were off the chain good!
Dinner: Pizza Bar-crusts that our first born daughter made almost by herself!
Drinks: Hansen’s Sparkling Water mixed with pomegranate Juice & Organic Cane Sugar Syrup. For the sugar syrup, I put some organic cane sugar & water in a pot and cooked it until the sugar dissolved, stirring frequently. For the drink mix, I put 1/4 c. syrup, apprx. 1/3 c. sparkling water & a tablespoon or so of juice-per cup. Then tasted and added what was needed.
Dessert: Smith Island 10 layer Cake - it ended up being 11 layers because I didn’t put enough batter in the first few layers. I didn’t want to spend 45 minutes making the frosting in the recipe, so we used the recipe off the back of the Heshey’s Cocoa container and thinned it down a bit so that it would able to easily spread over the layers.
I am very happy to say that our first born daughter, who is only 8 years old, has become my PIK – Partner In the Kitchen. She made the bread for the Lamb Burgers, Pizza Crusts and Frosting almost by herself. I handed her the recipe and she follows it! Here she is:
My husband did a message and has a video with more pictures on:
