Our no-fuss nine days menus aren’t about indulgent dairy dishes. We’re simply serving the basic, easy things our families love.
We don’t like calling this list a “Nine Days Menu.” It’s not a Yom Tov, it’s not a simcha. We don’t want to forget the meaning of the week by indulging in our favorite dairy foods or fussing over gourmet dairy dishes. Rather, we’re going with the simple meals that please our families.
There’s something interesting to note on these “menus.” Each of us wrote our menu separately…and notice how we’re mostly cooking the same things? Sure, some families might be less picky than others, but it doesn’t really matter that there’s a few cookbook authors among us…when it comes down to it, most of us stick to the basic family favorites that we know will go over well. So, there’s no need to get overwhelmed if you haven’t put a new recipe on the menu!
