Shopping for My "Ushpizin" Jewish Menu

This Month's Film: Ushpizin
Cuisine: Jewish

Because of the simplicity of the menu I chose, and the ingredients needed to prepare it, shopping for my 'Ushpizin' Jewish Sukkot celebration was easy. I was able to buy matzos and bagels for the recipes that called for matzo meal and bread crumbs, and I made my own gefilte fish and matzo balls. Unfortunately kosher meats were not so easy to come by, so my Sukkot meal wasn't 100% kosher. Of course, neither is my kitchen, so the kosher element was never possible from the start. However, I still managed to make a beautiful and delicious menu of Jewish dishes.
