Our Simchas Torah Menu (and free menu planners!)

The three days of Rosh Hashana worked out really well for us.  It was our first time home for the holiday, but the low-key ambiance was exactly what we wanted.  We were home with our kids and on our own schedule, which was not easy, but really really nice.

And so, with Rosh Hashana being so wonderful at home we’ve decided to stay home for Simchas Torah as well.  Last year was the first time we spent this holiday at home, so I kinda know what to expect in terms of Shul activities.

For whatever reason I’ve waited until the last minute to menu plan.  I obviously do not recommend this, but it happens to the best of us.  You’ll notice that our menu is similar to our Rosh Hashana menu.  We’re sticking with what worked!
