I invited my favorite Jewish man and his wife for supper on Monday night. They are Messianic believers in Yeshua (Jesus); it is appropriate that a gentile like myself make a way to express love for Jews: they are a nearer kinsman to Messiah and they have suffered such loss.
Here is the fare we offered, my wife and I cooking together:
2nd: matzoh ball soup in chicken stock with carrots, celery, and onion
3rd: baked orange roughy fish in panko with dill sauce
entrée: seared and braised beef brisket (soured in salted vinegar)
. au jus
. fresh multigrain rolls
lemon gelato palate cleanser
dessert: lemon cake with pecans – coffee
The market was out of fresh asparagus to go with the entrée. EVERYTHING turned out well and we had blessed fellowship.
I always check the Joy of Cooking book to make sure I set the table properly; here’s an alternative source.
