Yom Kippur

This past weekend I traveled to Virginia Beach for the day to "celebrate" Yom Kippur with my mom.

I use the term "celebrate" loosely because Yom Kippur consists of fasting for 24 hours. Sounds fun, right? Believe me, it is. No eating, no drinking, no working, and lots of quality family time.

But just when you're blind from hunger, delirious from thirst, and about to murder your entire family just because they dare to ask you some completely innocent question, Break Fast arrives.

Just as the name suggests, the Break Fast traditionally consists of breakfast items, on the lighter side so as not to cause your stomach to explode when you can finally gorge yourself again. This year, my mom decided to host Break Fast at her house. Here's what was on the menu:

Bagels with 3 different types of cream cheese
Salmon three ways: Smoked, Baked, and Pastrami
Cheese Quiche
Spinach Quiche
Challah Bread
Cheese and Crackers
Noodle Kugel
Fruit Salad
Tuna Salad
Croissant Bread Pudding
Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Recipes coming soon!
