Fish heads: breakfast of champions

I decided to follow the tradition of getting a head (to symbolize our desire to be the head and not the tail) for my Rosh Hashanah meals, but was unable to use one of them because I was unexpectedly invited out the first night.  (The second night I had lamb head which I really do not recommend; it has that icky organ meat taste- also bison roast which was OK and numerous fruits).

So my second head, a salmon, was just lying around in the freezer.

I woke up early enough Monday to have a pre-fast breakfast* and so I boiled the fish head!  It was delicious.  I couldn’t help thinking of the Fish Heads song – eat them up, yum!

Also had boiled potatos and fruit – the idea being to have bland, salt free food to avoid thirst.  Still a tough fast because of inadequate sleep and the necessity to work.


*Monday is Fast of Gedaliah, where we fast because the Babylonian-appointed governor was assassinated in 586 BC or so, thus ending our last chance for Jewish rule in Israel for some decades.
