Happy Passover, friends! For those of you who are half-and-half, we have a big week of eating ahead of us with Easter ending the marathon.
My parents hosted a simple Seder on Sunday. We started the meal with hillel sandwiches filled with dates and nuts, a Sephardic version of charoset, which was a big hit. Following the Seder plate was gelfilte fish. Not the best I've had, but not the worst either. Next came my mom's matzah ball soup, with doughy balls of salty matzah meal topped with lots of black pepper and horseradish.
Our entree was a braised, tender briscuit with carrots and celery, lemon quinoa, and a green salad. The meal was quite comforting and scrumptious.
Dessert was a flourless tarte served with Talenti coconut gelato. It was heavenly.
To burn off dinner, we had an impromptu dance party in the living room. Share your Passover traditions below.
