Started my passover shopping yesterday...brisket, matzoh meal (whole grain!!!!), potato starch, the 5 lb case of matzoh, and of course matzoh ball soup.  This is more than I usually buy...usually I just eliminate breads and noodles from our diets, and make dinners like baked fish or chicken (or have DH grill beef) with a side dish of a green veggie.

Going to my parents' house for Passover.  Got the guilt trip from Mom.  The guilt trip doesn't usually work, but at least I don't have to make the seder by myself!

I'm going to my parent's house too. My mom makes the BEST matzoh meal pancakes and awesome matzoh brie, hands down. Her matzoh ball soup is pretty good too. She uses seltzer instead of water in her mix and it makes the matzoh balls really light. Personally I like them really dense so they are "sinkers", but hers are pretty good!

It's nice to be able to go to seder at my Mom's. So glad Passover falls on a weekend this year so we can make the trip. She invites my Aunt & Uncle who live near her now and they were the Aunt & Uncle who always held the massive family seder's when we were all kids. My aunt is a gourmet so the food was always outrageously delicious and my Uncle would always hide the afikomen (sp?), even when we were all well into 20's-30's.

I always loved the seder growing up...lots of Aunts, Uncles and cousins...tons of fun!  We all lived on Long Island so it was easy to get together.  But my Aunt passed away in Feb. after years of bad blood between her and my parents, and the family is now scattered all over the country, so no one else is coming.  I guess deep down I know that all day I'll be missing those seders we had growing up, and very acutely missing my Aunt.  Maybe starting next year I'll try to have seders of my own so that my sons can have similar experiences to the ones I had growing up.

So Marci, how did he like his gift?!?!?!?!

How was seder, everyone?

Ours was nice.  My 14 month old ate 3 (yes, 3) baked potatoes and a bunch of matzah!
