Reprise: Have a green sustainable Seder tonight
This is a reposting of last years's Seder post because we forgot to to a new one.
The last supper was a Passover Seder. It is not just a meal that starts the holiday of Passover, but an oral tradition based on a command in the Bible: "You shall tell your child on that day, saying, 'It is because of what the LORD did for me when I came out of Egypt." It's long, because you can't just tell the story, you have to do the hyperlinks and connect what this rabbi said to that scholar and turn a few lines of Exodus into an hour of analysis. If only Tim Berners-Lee had been Jewish and lived 600 years ago, it might be easier.
Create New Innovative Meals From Holiday LeftoversIndeed, there are a lot of leftovers usually, after the starter plate and the soup it is almost impossible to get through the main course. This makes total sense.
Serve Local Food at Your Seder TableRight. Try and even fill the Seder plate in March with local food. I am not sure I could even find local apples at this time of year.
Grow Your Own Seder Essentials:See above. Oh wait, there are sprouts.
UnplugAlways a good idea.
Make Passover Eve a Meatless MondayNot likely to happen in our house; mom has already bought a roast that could feed 20 people and serving a third that many, but two vegetarians are coming for dinner and they are getting their own special treat.
Then there is Matzoh, the unleavened bread that Jews eat for the next seven days. It is an acquired taste, but if you like buttered cardboard you will love the stuff. Buzzfeed scores with 25 Delicious Ways To Use Matzoh, some of which look quite good. You can also try Kelly's Recipe of the Week: Passover Walnut Tweed Torte. Bonnie also offers 20 Ways to Recycle Your Leftover Matzah, which do not include turning it into building insulation.
