Ok, almost Wordless Wednesday. You all know I can’t REALLY be quiet.
I spent the past two nights at two different family Passover celebrations! Monday night, I went with Adam to his family’s seder, and didn’t quite feel right taking photos. Tuesday though, at my mom’s, I took advantage of the situation to take some great photos of the amazing eats and just a few of the people. My mom had 23 people at her house last night!
The gorgeous table
Fun and games with my mom (that’s my stepdad’s niece, and I didn’t have permission to blog her face!)
Gefilte fish, made by Aunt Dori
Mock chopped liver, made out of lentils! (I’ll blog this soon)
Matzo ball soup!
“Cement”, a dish made out of potatoes and hard boiled eggs
Charoset, in our family, a salad of chopped apples, toasted walnuts, dried apricots, fresh orange juice, and LOTS of cinnamon
Orange and onion salad made by Eo… amazing!
Jared and the brisket
Leigh and her friend Annalisa
And then dessert. I made a macaroon-crust lemon cheesecake…and it was an epic fail. The edges were fine, but the middle got weird. Then, according to my mom, by this morning, it had completely disintegrated and turned into soup. So I remade it tonight and it failed again, so I give up… but Leigh and Aunt Dori brought truly amazing desserts…
Chocolate mousse sponge cake by Aunt Dori
French macarons made by Leigh. I love them.
I love taking pictures of them.
And apparently, I like to play with them too…
(that’s my new tiny casserole dish…thanks mom!)
And, without further adeiu, I have something to share with you. My online Flea Market for Pancreatic Cancer Research is a go! There have been some AMAZING donations, and really great things for you all to bid on! If you’d like to show your support for the cause, please use the following code below to place a button in a post or your sidebar.
