Yom kippur 2012

Throughout my life I have fasted only twice.  Once when I was in love with a boy and wanted him to be impressed by my will power and the second time was 10 years later after separating from that boy/man while visiting family in Sydney Australia.  I found that fasting and going to synagogue on Yom Kippur feels very important when you are overseas, it connects you to something bigger and it brings the Jewish community together on a very special day.

This year I decided to do it again. I don’t really know why, maybe it’s because I feel the need for some body cleansing maybe I just want to prove to myself  that I can control my food intake….

being a food blogger makes my life surround cooking, eating, reading and web browsing, all food related, i guess that this year I decided to put all that on hold for 2 days, not an easy task for foodaholics like me but certainly a challenge.

For the last meal befor the fast i have decided to make a few things from the blog-


here are the liks to the recpies-

Bean and pasta soup

Roast beef

Baked baby potaotes

Lemon tart


Posting in a food blog on Yom Kippur is not really the best thing to do so please, if you are fasting, stay on this page, don’t browse to older posts, it will just makes you hungry!
