What has everyone been up to lately? Any big summer plans?

Was thinking the same.. Obviously not enough controversial topics happening at the moment!

How was everyone's Passover?

Does it feel good to eat leavened bread again, or were you just getting used to it?


Don't forget a lot of people go away for the Spring break and/or Holidays. And now we all have to go back to the weekly grind.

Hope everyone is doing well!

I never eat it so it makes no difference to me. I can't have gluten so cutting out chametz in my diet is pretty simple since it just involves a few items with vinegar. My husband is sure glad it's over though. Razz

I celebrated the end of Passover with a hamburger. My husband was getting tired of trying to fix me meals that didn't involve flour.

Maybe someday i will come to like Passover week (it'd help if I had a Jewish family to turn it into a real holiday), but right now, I'd rather deal with Yom Kippur. One day of fasting from everything is easier than an entire week of a very selective diet.

I had to travel to St. Louis the last half of passover and explain to everyone why, no, even that grilled wrap I can't eat. I was starving. Fruit and veggies from the grocery and nothing more. Following friends around looking for good BBQ ribs . . . but it all culminated in Kohn's Kosher Deli and . . . mmmmmmmmmmm.

@maculated:

You should have brought more of your own food such as matzah and kosher for Passover spreads like cashew butter, jam, or chocolate spread, K for P tuna (the pouches are more convenient for travel than cans), nuts like cashew, walnuts and pecans. There are various canned K for P foods. Individually wrapped cheese sticks or other sealed cheeses (wax covered or slices vacuum sealed in plastic) are fine for several days without refrigeration. As I recall from when I was a child and had dyed eggs around the house at Easter, un-peeled hard-boiled eggs are also OK for a few days without refrigeration. And I'm guessing that you'd be OK with un-peeled hard-boiled eggs cooked in non-K for P conditions as well.

Traveling during Passover is a pain. If you specially ordered "kosher" meals on planes or at events, you are likely to be served a packaged kosher meal that is not OK for Passover.

I suppose you ate at the Kosher deli after Passover ended or was there actually a kosher deli serving K for P food? None of the kosher restaurants in my area are open during Passover.

Yeah, me starving was my own fault. We don't really have much selection in the way of K for P stuff here, so aside from taking a bunch of feta cheese or chocolates, I was through my charoset and toffee matzot by day one. I probably could have gone to the Jewish community and found a grocery store that was more friendly, but given that I was shuttle mistress for the wedding, getting to do what I wanted to was . . . not happening.

And yeah, it was after passover. My non-Jewish friends were wondering why the shelves were so bare. :)

I had a wonderful Pesach. I spent the week by myself so planned ahead and bought a ticket for a community second night Seder and Havdalah service, made new friends. My husband was in DC and spent Shabbat and first night Seder at his shul and had a wonderful time too. We ended Pesach together here in Texas ;-)

Bee, are you not going to be able to join him in Baltimore? I had thought you were hanging back for a while but then you would also be staying in Baltimore with him.
