It’s so late this year.

I love to celebrate it the Thursday before Easter but it’s supposed to be celebrated beginning at sundown on Monday, April 22 thru sundown on Tuesday, April 30.

What are yall doing?  This will be our family’s 4th year to partake of the Seder.

One of my favorite side dishes.  Charoset - Fruit, nuts, and spices, meant to represent the mortar that the Israelites were forced to use to build the egyptian cities.

My plan for this year:

Gala Apple, Pear (chopped & strained)
Roasted nuts (Pistachios, pecans, pine)
Ginger, cinnamon stick, anise, salt, pepper
Dates, Figs, Prunes, Currants
Honey, apricot jam
Pomegranate / grape juice
Lemon juice & zest
 

It’s good on the lamb sandwich and as a topping with the Matzah bread (crackers).

 

Do people really eat sodium free crackers?

We actually do the four questions and go over the plagues of Egypt on Easter Sunday.  We eat the traditional Paschal foods for Easter dinner and talk about links between the deliverance of the Israelites from Egypt and the deliverance of man from sin.

Amazing how well the traditional seder can be slightly modified to include the gospel knowledge of the dispensation of the fulness of times.

We cheated this year and my daughter baked a German Chocolate Cake.  The coconut is very traditional though. 

My children have been talking about the Afikoman for weeks.

We watched three movies today.

Joseph: King of Dreams

The Prince of Egypt

The Ten Commandments

Good stuff.
