Prepping for Passover

Hey guys! Tonight my family is having our Passover seder since we weren’t home to do it on Wednesday night. I am so excited! Passover has always been my favorite holiday and I love the seder with all the eating, drinking, and laughing which accompanies the telling of the story of how the Jews escaped from being slaves in Egypt. The whole night is celebrating how while we were once slaves, we are now free. My favorite part is the “4 Questions” which asks why this night is different from all other nights. I can go into more detail tonight when I have pictures of the seder if you want me to! I also like how you drink 4 glasses of wine throughout the seder. Although there is a real significance to the wine, I also think it is so that you don’t realize how dry the matzo really is.

I can’t wait to start cooking a prepping for tonight. Here’s a funny little tidbit about me: between the ages of 12-15 I really wanted to be a Rabbi! Then, when it finally hit me that I have the absolute worst singing voice of anyone you have ever, or will ever meet, I reasoned that I probably shouldn’t subject an innocent congregation to that sort of cruel and unusual punishment.

Anyway, here’s what I’ve been up to so far today.


Yogurt with nectarine and berries.


Then I went and visited my Grandpa in the rehabilitation center. I’m so happy to say that he is doing much better. He was very coherent and we had a nice conversation. He was also dressed and in his wheelchair instead of in a hospital gown in bed which was great!


We stopped at Whole Foods on the way home to pick up some desserts. Since most Passover treats suck, we figured that if a good Passover cake exists it would be from WF. The one we picked looks delicious so I hope it doesn’t disappoint! We also got some chocolate covered matzo which we broke into on the way home. 


It would be blasphemous to leave WF without hitting up the salad bar so I obviously did that for my lunch. Mmmm.


Ok, gotta hit the kitchen!

    I’m sadly pretty ignorant when it comes to Passover so I would ADORE a post about it!! 4 glasses of vino sounds pretty doable to me 😉

    Glad your grandpa is doing better!!
