Seudas Mitzvah

Most of our fast days are days of mourning. They are imbued with sadness and the pain of klal Yisroel. Not so Yom Kippur. It is actually a day of joy, a wonderful opportunity to wipe the slate clean and start a fresh. Before the fast begins, we are obligated to eat a Seudas Mitzvah. Here are some suggestions for that meal:
It is traditional to eat soup with kreplach. This gourmet kosher cook confesses to using the frozen ones. I also confess to making a simple, hearty meal for Erev Yom Kippur and not an elaborate or elegant one.

Menu:
Semolina Bread
Breaded Chicken
Mashed Potatoes
Creamed Spinach
Watermelon

It is better not to have a sweet dessert before the fast since sugar makes you thirsty.
