Passover Notes - 2010 Edition

Continuing in the fine tradition, here are the notes I accumulated during Passover, 2010.

Hardware To Buy

  • Mugs -- it's time to graduate from only having a few in the house
  • A Sugar Bowl -- it's also time to get civilized and offer folks sugar from a proper container, rather than out of the 5lb bag
  • Wine Glasses -- we did perfectly with these!
  • A pitcher -- the pitcher we picked up at Homegoods worked great. So great, in fact, we kept it for all year. So, it's time to buy a new one.
  • Cookie sheets - make sure we have 4 new ones, we don't want to miss out on Shira's super Passover Cookies!
  • A Wooden Spoon - David says every kitchen needs one. I don't have any good reason to argue.
  • Potato Masher - it may be time to invest in a potato masher. Maybe. Let's not go too crazy.

Food Thoughts

  • The ice-cream bars were awesome - both the vanilla and chocolate yogurt. Pretty much, anything cold and dipped in chocolate is going to taste good.
  • Plain yogurt was a winner, you can skip the previous year's comment about getting vanilla
  • Buy 3 pkgs of hots dogs, not 2. Let Ben try using 1 package to make his soon-to-be-patented Passover Style Corn Dogs (which is going to be hotdogs, dipped in eggs or honey, and then rolled in matzo meal. It won't work, but it'll be fun to try.)
  • Syrup - how on Earth could we forget the syrup? It almost wasn't Passover without properly made mazto meal pancakes.
  • Hard to believe, but 4 large bottles of Manischewitz concord grape were correct.
  • I think we bought 7 dozen eggs per our last year's instructions. Again, amazingly, this number was correct.
  • 5 Boxes of Matzo was perfect.
  • Big jar of herring was perfect.
  • Green olives were a big hit.

Seder Chatter

When I get a few minutes, I'll write up my notes about questions/comments we had at the seder
