Baby Naming Celebration

Today we celebrated my granddaughter’s baby naming. It was at my house, and it was a beautiful occasion.  My daughter and son said some prayers, my grandsons read a poem, and we all ate lots of delicious food. It also was the Jewish holiday of Shavuous, and so we enjoyed some outstanding dairy dishes.

My menu was:

Sister’s Noodle Kugel

Another Kugel (not as good)

2 macaroni and cheese casseroles

1 spanikopita

1 mushroom quiche

1 blueberry french toast casserole (the favorite dish of the day, along with the macaroni and cheese, and Sister’s Noodle Kugel



whitefish salad

tuna salad with celery (used some Minute Maid lemon juice and Hellman’s mayonnaise and I got many compliments)

egg salad ( I use Litehouse chive, Hellman’s mayonnaise, salt, and pepper, and I make the egg salad in the food processor)

homemade macaroni salad with carrots, celery, and sweet red pepper

sliced red onion and  sliced tomato


bagels, cream cheese, and butter

sliced swiss and munster

sliced Hebrew National bologna and salami


homemade chocolate chip cookies

Judy’s Perfect Birthday Cake
