I volunteered to cook for the synagogue's kiddush lunch this week and spent much of today making a truly delicious meal --
Four kinds of sushi (raw ahi tuna, albacore tuna, smoked salmon with cream cheese and tofu with vegetables)
Homemade pickled ginger
Sesame cold noodles
Asian ramen slaw
And the usual bagels, cream cheese, lox, hummus, herring. Brownies for dessert.
One of the local caterers evidently says that at Beth Shalom we eat more than at other synagogues. Based on the quantities of food made last night and today, I totally agree!
