Another successful dinner.  We served a full house–22 adults and three children. The meal was prepared by Jennifer Moses, who delivered a lovely fish dinner. Dinner started with Carrot Ginger soup and challah–a great way to warm up on a chilly evening. The main was Tilapia filets over a bed of rice and a side of brussel sprouts. Desert was homemade apple sauce and cookies.
