Yom Kippur Recap

The pre-yom kippur meal was very nice. The poached chicken and the purred carrots came from Suzie Fishbein's Kosher by Design. I made the puree without the soy milk and it still came out creamy and tasty. The poached chicken should be made immediately before serving. It takes just a few minutes to cook. This time, I let the chicken in the poaching liquid with the heat turned off until it was served. The chicken had over cooked... I would suggest instead just poaching until it is just done and then making a sauce our of strained poaching liquid. My sauce tasted wonderful, but (as usual), I used too much flour as a thickener.

It may sound like lots of little failures, but the food went over well and everyone enjoyed it.

The fast itself was pretty easy. No outside guests, so its was just family. I feel positive that the day was successful and that this year will be a good one for myself and my family.
