Tonight is the shalom zachor (baby welcoming) for my sister's newborn baby boy. For those of you that don't know, it is basically a little welcoming party for hundreds.... with a lot of booze and food. I was up late baking last night and most of today....

9 challahs

3 potato kugels, grated by hand (10 pounds!)

a big bowl of chocolate mousse with whipped cream and chocolate shavings

5 1/2 dozen chocolate chip cookies

one batch brownies

s'mores (Jessica helped with that)

40 chocolate covered strawberries (I'm not letting my husband near them, all you regulars should know)



  1. Beautiful!
