Happy Passover to all of our Jewish bloggers and readers! We had our Seder on the third night with friends and it was an amazing meal. There has been a long suspicion that I married a Jewish girl because of a notorious addiction to Matzo ball soup. Leslie just happens to be a world class cook. She spent days preparing for this meal and is and her home-made broth and Matzo balls were the best that I ever had. (I was allowed to baste the brisket through the day, but that is the closest that she would let me get to the preparation of the meal).
The rest of the meal was equally amazing with slow cooked Brisket, Apple & Almond Haroset, apple kugel, sautéed French green beans, Kale salad, and a lovely wine. She also had chopped liver and Gefilte fish which I have never been able to stomach.
Even Luna got her Passover share — her first brisket encounter and she had that look of “where have you been my whole life.”
Now, we get to go on to Easter since my kids gets to double dip on both Jewish and Christian holidays. I love April.
Best wishes to all of our Jewish members!
