Tonight will be a VFT with a Rosh Hashana twist. Once again, I will try to make the matzo balls, balls and not crumbles. Trying something a little different this time. We’ll see. If I can perfect them by Passover, it will be a big accomplishment. If not, the beauty is, these “kids” will still find the soup delicious. There will be no-pig, pigs in a blanket, tuno-salad, soup, salad, roasted veggies, (of course sweet potatoes for a sweet new year) quinoa, and a variety of main courses, including a “roast,” and some “beef” with mushrooms, peppers and onions. For dessert there will be chocolate jelly rings, halvah and some other sweets. Who says we only eat lettuce and tofu? Most importantly, Mitch and I will be with Derek and the rest of our VFT family. I sure wish Kyle and Nicole could be with us, but I am grateful that they have one another and are happy and healthy.
A very, very dear childhood friend and her husband lost their beautiful daughter to Cystic Fibrosis last night. I end this morning with this quote that is near and dear to their hearts. “Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.”
Wishing you all a New Year filled with many moments that take YOUR breath away. Kiss your loved ones and be grateful for the bounty of blessing you have in your life. I know that I certainly am. May the New Year bring us peace on earth, peace in our homes, and peace in our hearts. Much love.
