A Break-the-Fast Feast

September 30, 2009

For those of you that fasted yesterday, I hope your fast was easy.  As a welcome end to the day, I whipped up a holiday feast for my husband and family.  I cooked for two whole days to provide the following meal:

Fresh Vegetable Soup with Chicken and Noodles. I improved this hearty soup that could have been a meal in itself by adding matzoh balls.  See the recipe in the previous post.

Fresh Greens Salad.  This was a last minute add-on that I made to help out those at the table who were required to weigh in the following day at a weight-watchers meeting.  I have been informed that even with the matzoh balls, 1.5lbs were lost this week!  Good work, Mom!

Grilled Chicken and Pinapple. I wanted to make the protein out of the kitchen as I already had enough dishes to do.  I marinated the chicken in a combination of teriyaki and jerk sauces.  For those of you who have never had grilled pinapple, you must try it the next time you fire up your grill.  Grilled pinapple is a real treat for the palate.

Baked Sweet Potatoes and White Potatoes. Simple, easy, delicious – with butter and cinnimon sugar or sour cream and chives.

Asparagus and Herbed Cheese Strudel. This was an advanced-skills dish involving phyllo, goat cheese, tarragon, asparagus and lots of butter.  It was completely worth the effort.

Baked Apples. A simple desert involving whole apples baked with cinnimon, brown sugar and dried fruit pieces in the center.  The review: “Its like apple pie without the crust.”

I set out my good china, silverware and crystal for the meal.  I meant to take lots of photos to show the lovely spread.  Of course, I forgot to take pictures so you will have to use your imagination to visualize this one!.  Happy New Year to all who celebrated yesterday.
