Passover 2016/5776

So, another Passover Seder done.  A small one this year, which was lovely.  We needed the extra table but we were all at the same one, in the same room.


All the usual foods were present: matzo ball soupbrisket, mashed potatoes, steamed green beans, roasted asparagus and cauliflower, charoset (which I made up, using one apple, some pecans, some walnuts, some dates, some manischewitz, honey and cinnamon),  and chocolate caramel matzo.

Many of our usual suspects were not present, sadly.  But we had a lovely cohort, nonetheless.  My dad joined us, as did a good friend and her sweet new (less than a month old!) baby.  Who I held.  For an hour.  Bliss.

The table was beautiful, place cards were made by Grace and everyone seemed to have a good time.


Plague masks were worn, happily.



Grace had her first shot at the four questions.


And, of course, we ate like kings, while leaning.



There was even enough brisket left over to make hash for breakfast the next day.


Chag Semach to all of you and happy spring!
