ISO: New Rosh Hashanah Side Dishes

I am making dinner on both nights of Rosh Hashanah this year and I want to make some new side dishes so that the main dishes don't seem sooo boring. I am cooking for myself, my MIL, my hubby and my 9 year old son. He is very picky as is my MIL. She has the added problem of having a sensitive tummy. She can't eat anything fried, and she won't eat too many veggies. My son will eat green beans, peas, corn, and tomatoes right from the vines (not in a salad though). If i can try and get him to eat one more veggie that would be great. He only likes potatoes either in latkes or french fries. Since I can't make either of those because MIL can't eat them, I am at a quandry. What should I do???

Any good suggestions would be appreciated.

:?

Rosh Hashana Sides

I sometimes made akorn squash or another fall orange squash (not yams or sweet potatoes) and would roast them and then mash with butter, nutmeg, maple syrup and sometimes would add pineapple. Kids love it and with all natural products seasoning, it is good for them. Just don't tell them.

:roll: GO DUCKS

Well, you know what you family will or won't eat, but if you want to make some serious points with the MIL (I always did) ask her what her favorite dishes are and then serve at least one on each night. If you can find a couple of her favorites that fit with what your family will eat, all the better. But, trust me, MIL will be impressed that you asked and produced something specifically for her even if nobody else touches it.

I went to google and searched on jewish and rosh hashana recipes.

For Jewish recipes start here: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&i...jewish+recipes

For Rosh Hashana recipes start here: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&l...mp;btnG=Search

Hope this helps give you some ideas!

if you're gonna go the squash route, try this. cut a butternut squash into quarters and either roast or nuke until soft. scoop out the meat and set aside in a bowl. nuke some sweet potatoes, and again scoop out the inside and add to the squash bowl. steam some cauliflower until very soft, and add to the bowl. mash together while adding honey and either brown sugar or maple syrup. i love this side dish, and kids will eat it because it's sweet. they never have to know what's in it. :)
