Shavuos Menu

shavuos 077 This is basically a literally reworking of last year’s disorganized Shavuos menu. I changed the days (last year, one day was Shabbos), and I’ve added a reprise of Shabbos’s delicious vegan samosas for guests who don’t eat meat. Yes, I’m serving meat… just not to them!

(p.s. If you want to see how everything turned out, close-up, check out my baking blog, Adventures in BreadLand, over here!)

In case that sounds totally rude, they don’t eat dairy either, so I may as well make delicious pareve things. At least they eat eggs… I think!
