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:)
