Shana Tova 5772 - A Happy Healthy New Year

On Rosh Hashana, we eat all kinds of traditional foods whose words mean something in Hebrew that gives us a clue about how we'd like our future to be.
The easiest way to explain this would be: we serve raisins and celery so that in the coming year, we should have a raise in our salaries.
You get the idea.
Well, there's a traditional Rosh Hashana seder that is filled with all kinds of signs and deeper meanings.
But then again, there's us guys who after our traditional seder, like to just have a little fun. :)
So, here's my menu for this Rosh Hashana. If it helps you get ideas about what to cook this year or next... hooray.
Wishing all a happy healthy new year.
May you be inscribed in the book of life for a happy healthy prosperous PEACEFUL new year.
