Sgt. Mom: “(Matzos …num-num-num-num!)”
My haggadah (the prayer book for the seder service that is the first meal of the Passover) says:
Leader: holds up the plate with the matzah on it and says:
“Lo! This is the bread of affliction”
After eating it for a week, most Jews agree.
I have to agree with Robert on this one.
I made a double batch of smoked salmon spread and a lot of egg salad to get through the week.
Bread of affliction? My first encounter with matzos was when the Girl Scout troop that I belonged to was headed off into the mountains for a long camping trip which overlapped with Passover, and one of our members was Jewish and brought along a HUGE stock of matzos. All the rest of the troop loved them. I think we polished off most of her matzos during that trip. Unsalted, slightly tough soda crackers go good with everything! Now and again, I buy a packet for old time’s sake.
in the photo, are the burnt ends of matzo more satisfying-like the burnt ends of barbeque?
Maybe a little.
