Last Full Week of Chametz Before Passover

... and there's still too much in the pantry, freezer etc.

I'll just have to give things away.

I'll also serve the egg rolls I had bought.

Next week I can finish the tamari sauce.

Next week, we'll probably eat pasta every day, maybe every meal. Maybe we'll be so sick of it, the matzah will seem like a treat.

Next week I have to clean the house.

Next week we can have everything in a pitta. Pasta, too?

Next week the Kosher Cooking Carnival will be served by Mother In Israel. So send your kosher food links, anything concerning kosher food, via the carnival submission form.

Shabbat Shalom and Chodesh Tov

Last week in our house:
tuna noodle casserole
(or tuna noona, as my Middle Son calls it)
This week:
- quiche with a leftover pie crust
- lasagna last night, my (5-year-old) daughter requested and helped make it

- salt and pepper noodle kugel
- spinach, onion noodle kugel

Beyond what will last me for the next week and a half, there really isn't much normal chametz left in my apartment. I'll just have to take care of the "odds and ends" that I couldn't get rid of.

I was sure I'd finish some items, but apparently not...

We call this the week of eating dangerously. Chag kasher v'sameach. I wish I was in Israel.

leora, sounds great; at least you have company.

t, I think you would have liked the things I invented for this Shabbat. I'll have to blog about them.

doc, I don't know about dangerous, but it's sure bad for the figure. When you're in Israel, would love to f2f.

It took me years to figure out that the weight that I gain "during Pesach" is all put on during the month before Pesach, when I'm trying to stuff all our faces with whatever chametz we have left!

Got a late start this year...

Brilliant! You are truly brilliant! I thought staying in the house suffering throught the cleaning also made weight go up.
