Passover's Coming

Short post, because I'm up to my neck in cooking and baking for Passover Seders and visiting in-laws. But I thought I'd share my contribution so far...okay, that was from 2007, but doesn't it look awesome? The lamb is about to go in the oven and everything else is ready.

For years I boycotted making gefilte fish...I love to eat it, don't get me wrong, but it's so smelly to make...at least it was until I found this recipe last year. It's delicious and the house will not smell very fishy either.

Tunisian Style Date Cake
(and no flour at all!)

One or two more desserts coming...maybe...depending on when I poop out and then I'm done except for the helping. I used to have 20-25 people for Seder dinners (Often, I would even do both of them), but it's been a while and now I simply contribute to other people's Seders.

Here's the menu for 2007 Seder at Joanna & Ezra's. Boaz was a baby and we (including my other daughter, Sharron) came to Halifax for the holidays.
And to all my Christian friends....have a very Happy Easter.
Don't forget that this week's Presto Pasta Night roundup is being hosted by the wonderful Marye of Baking Delights. Send your perfect pastas her way at maudet8816 (at)aol (dot) com and cc me ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com Guidelines to share your pasta dishes.
Who knows, maybe I'll even get in a pasta dish for dinner tonight...nothing does leftovers better than pasta.

We're just about ready to go too! Date cake looks great! I do hate the smell of gfilte fish, but it tastes so good, we usually just put up with it. We did the fish yesterday, and baked almond macaroons today, so the house smells like baking not fish!

Happy Passover! I tortured myself today and looked at the Presto Pasta roundup. Haha.

Ruth Daniels said...

Thanks all, and yes ... the date cake was a big hit!

Hillary, I know just what you mean ;-( but I'll be making an awesome looking Passover lasagna with no pasta!
