Cooking Notes – Passover is Finally Here

We are in the home stretch at least as far as cooking goes. I have literally been shopping and cooking all week and I am not even having the dinner in my house which is another job in and of itself. We are going to our daughter Jenn’s house tonite, and I am helping with her Seder.  Bringing a lot of goodies from my house.  Second night I am bringing everything to my Sister in Law’s family, we will just be 6 so it’s not overwhelming but I am sure I cooked enough for 26.   I go a little crazy as I’m sure we all do trying to please everyone with what they love and expect. Of course I’ve enjoyed making everything and am happy to do it. Will be pretty relieved Sunday morning when I can stop thinking about it all the time. We will observe the no bread rules for the week, and I have a few suggestions for that .  Nothing quite like the food storm I hit you with from the last 2 weeks. Also a special shout out to all of those who sent me recipes, I tried to make as much as I could. I am going to try all of them at some point this week, will post as I cook them. Special thanks to Marcy  ,Julie ,  Ellen , Jean , Cathy , Karyn  and of course to my daughter Kerri for all her help with this blog.

This is what I cooked:

Homemade Chicken Soup with Matzo Balls

Chicken Marbella

Happy New Year Brisket

Spinach Souffle

Peach Farfel

Grandma Regina’s Farfel

Fresh Cranberry Sauce

Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Macaroons ( both dipped and non dipped)

Julie’s Brownies

Ellen’s Apple Cake

* of course Gefilte Fish which I have never made and buy at Shop Rite in Plainview. If you eat Gefilte Fish, I have to say this is the most delicious gefilte fish I’ve ever eaten, we’ve been buying it there forever. ( they make Kosher and Non- Kosher) we love the sweet one! (they have both sweet and regular)

    I have been cooking since Monday as well and am looking forward to the family seder here tonight- only 14 this year so we can all fit at one table. I am looking forward to your no bread recipes as Steve keeps kosher or Passover also, one of the few of our Jewish friends to do so! He starts out enthusiastic but by the last day is craving pizza! I don’t have Seder Sat night but do have Easter Sunday dinner here on Sunday – leg of lamb this year and then I incorporate what Steve can eat for all the sides. Thanks for giving me Kerri’s contact info in Florida. Robert said how nice she is – of course she is with you as parents! Enjoy the family!
