You might be pulling out your best cut of meat for the seudah, but let’s be frank (if you really want to be frank, though, you can serve these as an appetizer): your side dishes are wanting. Appetizers and mains (and dessert) usually grab most of the attention when it comes to menu-making. It’s much harder to make the rice or the vegetables exciting.
