Back in 2006 I left my 2007 self a handy note as to tips for Passover. I had intended to do the same last year, but never got beyond a rough set of bullets. Here, in fact, is the list I left myself from last year (comments in italics):
- kids hagadah -- Buy some, I guess? - unpack, then shop -- Now this is sagely advice - cream cheese and matza -- Is good? Yes, now I remember - is good. - herring in wine sauce -- Same here - first night, can fiddle with the times -- Don't know how, better ask Rabbi - non-jews at a seder -- And this relates to? - potato chips for day before the first seder -- Good to know - maneschweitz yellow cake and carrot cake, very good -- Also good to know - 3 boxes of Matzo -- Super, I won't buy the 12 pack - herring good, lox too - cream cheese and matzo - very good -- So good, it's on the list twice! - marshmallows were not good this year -- Well, ya win some, lose some - whole wheat matzo was good - a sealed, year old box of matzo, will still taste good -- Sweet!
I was hoping this list would be useful for the Kosher Mart trip we have planned tomorrow. Perhaps it may be - at least I'll know to pick up some cream cheese!
What Passover tips do you have to share?
