I hope you had a rocking Rosh Hashanah and enjoyed our Susie Fishbein menu.  Now it’s time to prepare for Sukkot with Susie.  Since it’s already October, I am thinking this is going to be the kind of year where we sit outside in our winter coats — so to warm us all up, I am including a hearty seasonal soup on our menu with a fabulous Italian Focaccia. There is a tradition to eat stuffed foods on Sukkot, so we have an Apricot Almond Stuffed Chicken that is the highlight of our spectacular Susie Sukkot menu.

Focaccia Bread Three Ways
Meatball Minestrone
Apricot Almond Stuffed Chicken
Rice Pilaf
Spinach and Parsnip Gratin
Cappucino Mousse

    Thank you for also providing a shopping list! That is one of the most time-consuming parts of planning a menu, for me.

    How do we have milk chocolate in a dessert for a meal with chicken?
