As many of you know I love to cook the Jewish Holiday feasts for the first nights of Rosh Hashona and Passover for my family. Since I move in a leisurely pace in the kitchen I make two or three dishes each day in preparation for the feasts.
The food amazingly gets better with each meal. I have no modesty about my cooking because I love to eat my food. I use the recipes of my mother, grandmother and aunts along with my own variations of traditional Jewish holiday food in my family.
It started nineteen years ago when I moved into my current, large apartment. My sister no longer had to host all of our family holiday meals. I made Matzoh balls and got rave reviews. So I branched out. Each holiday I began to do more until I got to my standard holiday meal.
In addition to the matzoh balls I cook my mother’s brisket, my grandmother and Aunt Pearl’s sweet potato, carrot with matzoh ball “tzimmes” ( stew) , my aunt Harriet’s sour cream coffee cake with my own modification, potato pudding and my own unique noodle pudding. Yum!
I love to make the cake using my Aunt Pearl’s Kitchen Aid mixer. I joyfully feel my connection to my mother, grandmothers, and aunts as I cook with love.
In preparation for the feast the windows get washed, my window crystals cleaned and put up again and my finest formal table is set for the first night. I love using my maternal grandmother’s table cloth, my paternal grandmother’s china and my mother’s silver.
On the second nights of these holidays I most often invite friends in for the “left overs”. For the second night I put away the silver, most of the china and set another, more casual holiday table.
This year I can show you what the second night table looked like after all the dishes were done. Included in this slide show are some pictures of my beloved flowers in my outside and inside garden, and one picture of the morning glories in Central Park .
I find myself closest to God through experiencing beauty and when I am a channel of light for healing and love. I feel God breathing me and I feel the Universe within me as I focus on how much I love the colors, variations, combinations and forms of the flowers.
On a different note, the proposed Practitioner Skills Development Day on September 28 will not be happening as too few responses were received for the event to take place.
But, I am happy to announce that our September Group will be happening as Harriet, Kim, Paula, Joie, Merrill and Gladys are planning to attend! Yay!!!!
Group will begin at 12:45 and end at 4:45pm on Sunday September 29, 2013. If you would like to join us, please do so and let me know to expect you. Payment is due by September 23rd.
For those who would like to be included by proxy into the Group repatterning, there is a Group Repatterning fee of $45.00, payable by check or by using this link for paypal http://www.beyourbliss.info/fees-insurance.html
I expect that Group this month will be extra powerful not only because of the frequency changes we are all experiencing on planet Earth, but also because I will be returning home from a consciousness weekend earlier in that week. Whoo!!!!
Sending you each love, light, laughter and gratitude,
