At our house we celebrate some Christian, some Jewish, and some National holidays. We are a celebrating kind of family. Last night John and I had a small celebration of the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah. It is nice to have two New Years every year. It is a second chance to head yourself in the right direction again and to reflect on the past months.
John is loving his sous vide. Even though this chicken breast had not thawed (because we forgot to put it in the refrigerator yesterday) it still came out perfectly. It just takes the water a little longer to come up to temperature. We leave it in for at least an hour and a half after that. The gravy comes from a McCormack packet and is only 25 calories for 1/4 cup. The mashed potatoes I made with a little butter and olive oil plus milk. The broccoli is just briefly steamed.
We were supposed to have apples and honey for dessert which is traditional. Since we never eat dessert we totally forgot.
