I only went crazy getting rid of the yeast stuff. Since yeast is alive and can multiply on its own. I just wasn't sure about baking soda and baking powder. See corn tortillas are a funny thing - they don't have leavening, but corn for some reason is on th no-no list, and corn tortillas are not "kosher for passover" according to who ever it is that makes up the extra rules... (not for me...I just read what the bible says and do that to the best of my understanding)In fact one of our Passover meals this week will be cheese enchiladas.
I don't know where all those little rules came from, but people who worry about the law have become wonderful fence builders. just so you don't get too close to actually commiting a sin.
This year should be fun because I have more on line friends who are celebrating this week. I would love to hear how your family does passover.
we are so new to biblical holidays that we hardly have traditions yet.

Yeah - Torah doesn't say "Thou shalt not eat corn for Matza, as it is yellow and naturally leavened".....

Last year I didn't bother with baking soda or powder...this year, I noticed that the box mixes call baking powder "leavening", so...out it went. (Only....I didn't check the newest box mixes, so I'll bundle them up tonight and leave them in the car. Technically out of the house.....I can't afford to dump them and replace them. :sigh:)

We don't really have any traditions yet. I started out planning on doing a traditional seder...until I read the thing and realized they had added a lot of stuff. The bitter herbs are Torah, but the egg? The....whatever it is with the apples, to represent mortar? Yeah....not so much.

Tonight we'll do lamb kebabs (with mushrooms and parsley - both bitter :grin:), some sort of veggie side, and we'll read Exodus. I'll tie in with the Gospel story of the Crucifixon, and probably bring in your musings as well.

I hadn't thought of cheese enchiladas! :frantically writes it on the menu list: I'll be doing chili at some point - it'll be the last great gasp for the year, since it's supposed to be in the *80*s the rest of the week. :rolls eyes: I've got chicken for...something, too. :lol: (Yes, I am a seat-of-the-pants cook. I never know what's for dinner until, well, Dinner! :lol:)
