This is a pretty big weekend for me. I’m hosting a Passover Seder for over 30 people. It’s a great excuse for my closest friends and family to come together and be a part of a special, long-standing tradition. Every year, my brother-in-law tells the story of Passover using puppets – and we’re quite the captive audience.
Actually, everything I learned about the holiday came from watching A Rugrats Passover — my kids loved it and so did I. You should rent it, it’s a fun watch for all ages.
My prep work is already underway. My kitchen is brimming with all the staples for a delicious Passover seder. I wanted to share this year’s menu with you:
-Brisket – A mainstay for any Jewish holiday, many people’s recipes are passed down through the generations
-Asparagus – Fresh and in-season from the farmers market
-Matzo ball soup – The quintessential way to start any Seder
-Broiled salmon – I always like to offer a second lighter entrée option
-And for desert? Meringues and macaroons – Two of my very favorite cookies.
I also picked up a really great present for my god-daughter, Stella. How adorable are these little converse booties?
My assistant Jennifer told me about them (her mother-in-law makes each pair by hand in the UK). They are just too cool. I hear she’s making flip-flops ones now too.
Whether it be Easter or Passover – I wish you a happy one. – XO, Bobbi
