Rosh Hashanah Menu 2011

I always enjoy reading other people's menus for chag and love to get inspiration from what other people are making. To that end I thought to myself- why not post my menu for one of  what seems like hundreds of meals for this Rosh Hashanah. Call me crazy, but I actually love putting together menus and sometimes spend way too much time (I'm too embaressed to tell you my record) coming up with them. This menu was extra fun to make because I worked hard to try to incorporate at least one of the traditional simanim in each dish. Though by now most people will have their menus planned (and maybe even their shopping done!) maybe this menu can inspire the late bloomers.
