What are you making or bringing to Rosh Hashanah this year, if celebrating?

I would love to read your menus. I don't host this holiday but will be asked to bring a vegetable side dish. We're not Kosher and have family Ashkenazi Jewish, Eastern European standby's but the younger generation (like myself) are slowing introducing new dishes.

BTW, I adjust these recipes to be kosher...don't use cheese & meat in same meal, use vegetable broth or kosher chicken broth instead of regular chicken broth, etc. You may know or ask your hosts what rules they follow so you can too.

I'm making this brisket: https://food52.com/recipes...
Challah (usually Molley Yeh's recipe)
Some sort of salad (cucumber & fennel is a mix I've been feeling lately)
Either roasted Brussels sprouts or garlic green beans https://food52.com/recipes...
And as a side either Ottolenghi's rice with orzo or couscous from Leah Koenig's book
Dessert will be my grandma's walnut cake: https://food52.com/recipes...

The walnut cake sounds lovely.
Do you make it with flour for Rosh Hashanah or still use matzo meal?

Wow, sounds great. My cousin does all the baking including challah & desserts. I'm waiting for feedback on what 2 side dishes to bring. It's certainly a family affair with us. L'Shanah Tovah U'Metukah
