Alissa's Personal Blog- MHP

Brrrr...it's cold outside!! I am beginning to get a little jealous of the Moishe House staff who are probably wearing shorts and t-shirts today in bright and sunny California, while those of us in the Northeast are freeeezing!!! Luckily, we have had some great programs here at Moishe House Philly to help us and our community get through the winter. My favorite one was our holiday Shabbat dinner on the last night of Hanukkah. Unlike the potluck shabbat dinners that we typically have at our house, for the holiday dinner, we actually cooked everything ourselves (all pareve)...and I have to say, we had quite the feast. Honey rosemary tofu, stuffed chicken breasts, roasted vegetables, carrot soup, mixed mushroom and red pepper sautee, chocolate gingerbread, warm challah, green beans with almonds, etc., etc. Plus, it was a sit-down dinner for 25 people and it was a fun excuse to dress up. Simply put-- it was classy, delicious, and tons of fun. And to help us get through the rest of the winter, we have some great events in store for January-- including a wine swap and our second annual Fondue B'Shvat Seder/Shabbat dinner! For now though, I may go make myself a warm cup of tea:)
