Pesach, or Passover, begins tonight and I am pleased. I love Pesach. The special foods, the rituals, the fellowship. I love matzah. With leftover haroset for breakfast. With tuna salad for lunch. With melted chocolate chips for a sweet snack.
I have been cooking all morning for a family seder tonight and a seder with guests tomorrow night. The brisket for tomorrow is ready. Tonight's dessert is on the stove. Salads for both nights are made and chilling. I feel so competent. We won't go into the cleaning aspect of Pesach, since it's not as much fun and certainly, less well done. PRM
