Serious Entertaining: A Classic-but-Slightly-Updated Rosh Hashanah Menu

For every Rosh Hashanah my grandma cooks up the same recipes. Don't try suggesting that she do otherwise. My mom's suggestions of couscous instead of rice last week was swiftly dismissed. So, itching to break free from the loving (but tyrannical) rule of my grandma, I've put together a menu for those who might want something a little bit different for the holiday, but also don't want to incur the wrath of bubbe.
