The weather behaved so that my sinuses did to. I hope your fast went as easily, quickly as mine. I hope it was meaningful for you as well.
Breaking fast is always a difficult thing to do. For Yom Kippur generally we’re really tired and a bit sore from all the standing (at least I am). We don’t want to eat too much, but we also want to be sated enough but not overly [how is that for a poorly written sentence?]. I think I’d be fine with just a large glass of cold gingerale (or a tart juice, just not OJ). To that tonight I added some spelt challah with margarine and jam by the inlaws followed by rice cakes and butter at home with some farm fresh yellow egg plums (my first time having, I really enjoyed) and some cherry garcia. Though now I’m enjoying a warm chamomile tea with honey and milk so I hopefully sleep after the sugar rush…
How do you break?
I’ll refrain from waxing poetic but I’m in love with quinoa. I’m looking for a couscous substitute.. while I love rice, I love parmesan couscous just as much but it’s much worse for me. I’ve been looking for something similar to couscous that I can eat. I discovered that my local super grocery store actually sells arrowhead mills quinoa for less (I think, at least closer) than the health food stores.
