Getting Ready, Passover Progress
My freezer is slowly emptying out. Actually, some of the meat is Kosher for Passover, but obviously the rolls and challah aren't. I have given away the "batzek allim," puff pastry dough to a neighbor. Usually I call her a couple of days or hours before the "bidikat chametz" deadline for having the forbidden-on-Passover chametz, but this year I knew that there was nothing I'd cook with it and wanted it out of the house.
There's plenty of Passover food already for sale in the Machane Yehuda Market. I'm not in the market for that type of food.
I just bought myself some fruit.
Today I cleaned out the kitchen closet which is always the first. I don't think I'll be doing the rest of the house very well this year for various reasons. We only eat in the kitchen, dining-room, living-room and yes, I must admit, in the den, though no chametz as far as I know. I don't eat chametz much. I have my challah on Shabbat and that's it. I don't eat cookies, pasta, cake, cereals etc. For almost a year and a half I've been on a low carbohydrate diet. I stay away from all wheat products.
OK, back to work.
