Shabbat Rosh Hashana - Happy New Year

Rosh Hashana is soon here and we are pretty much prepared. We are eating out the first night and the first lunch, so I'm free as a bird (cooking wise). For the second night, we are having hoagies and fresh salads, so no preparation is necessary. The final lunch is going to be milk based with salmon, jalapeno rice, cheeses and eggplant parmesan.

Got to run to a meeting for my sons upcoming wedding (date still unknown).

May you all have a healthy year. All else follows.
Elliot and Leiah

I hope the weather is better back home than it was in France.

L'Shana Tova.

Actually, its the reverse. We have had five years of sub-standard rain, and we would love to have many rainy days in Israel this year. Its strange how different locations have different takes on weather. For us, water is a blessing.

Can you post more info about the hoagies? sounds like something my boys would like.

Hoagies are sub sandwiches. Its a local name from Philadelphia. See here:

We made then with various deli meats (salami, pastrami, duck, turkey, corned beef, etc.) all of which can be bought in supermarkets in Israel.

Add your favorite toppings (onions, lettuce, slices tomatoes, pickles) and condiments (mustard, ketchup, mayonnaise, horseradish) and you are good to go.

The name is special, but the sandwich is pretty simple.

There used to be a fast-food joint in Tel Aviv called 'Hoagies' that served hot thin slices of beef with spicey sauce and toppings.I thought that is what you made.
