If only. Although I must admit that 2nd night was interesting. We didn't read the Haggadah as much as leaf through it and discuss what we wanted to use in future seders and where we wanted to add or subtract, modernize, etc -- a meta-seder.

No no. This is all wrong. It is downright sacrilegious.

It only includes two glasses of wine.

There need to be four.

If I'm gonna eat all that matzoh and gefilte fish, I wanna be drunk.

That should read, "4 glasses of wine, minimum".

Why limit yourself to wine?

But.

I like the image of the drunken Santa in their Christmas Ale ad. Classic.

The fourth bottle tastes better than the first.

The honey beer was pretty good.

So, who drinks Elijah's cup in your family?

Drinking Elijah's cup was always my job as a kid. I still do it when cleaning up as my kids don't seem to want the honor.

I'm eating rye matzo right now, and it doesn't taste too bad -- thinner and crisper, so you don't mind the cardboard taste as much.

Who is still eating seder leftovers? The soup (~ 5 gallons?!) is gone! But I've still got a fair amount of kugel and brisket. Guess what's for lunch today? My sister made crudite for the karpas so nobody would starve before the meal. I don't know how many people she thought were coming. She must have bought out a vegetable stand. We're down to sauteeing it and using it for omelet filling. Tonight I think it will get put on top of quinoa.

There has been a big matzoh shortage here in the Southeast. Apparently Manichevitz did not produce enough and so all brands were nearly impossible to find until yesterday, finally. We have had whole wheat and spelt matzoh.

Still eating charoset and matzoh ball soup...

Dinner last night was leftover brisket.

Lunch today was chicken salad made from the left over chicken.

I have a feeling tonight will be Passover macaroni and cheese.

still have some brisket left, I think it will finally be gone tonight. Today was garbage day, so most of the leftovers went into the can. however, I did keep the charoset. I decided that is is a very healthy snack.

apples, walnuts and wine(little cinnamon and grated orange peel) mashed up to form a heavenly paste! too bad it is only eaten once a year.

One of the guys in the office had an even quicker Seder:

"They tried to kill us. We won. Let's eat."

I'd say it's a cup Elijah owned. That's just a guess. Sounds better than eating fish every damn Friday during Lent though. You ever had mac n' canned tuna?

I have. I just dry-heaved.

Elijah's cup is a cup filled with wine set aside for Elijah to drink. According to tradition, Elijah will show up one day at a passover seder, walk in, sit down, drink and then point to one of those present and name him (or her?) the messiah.

So everybody fills a cup. Sets it aside. Opens the door. Freaks out the kids. Then is stuck with an undrunk goblet of wine.

You are SUCH a wimp! Lemme tell ya, I was raised Old School Catholic...that good ol' eastern-European, batshit-crazy kinda Catholicism that has since become so very passe.

We didn't just eat fish on Fridays during Lent...hell...we fasted during the ENTIRE FACKIN' Lenten season. I kid you not. Oh, yeah, we knelt for an hour each night as we recited the rosary...(while our stomachs rumbled).

Good times...good times...

(Oh, and I LOVE mac n' canned tuna...Philistine!)

Pass that goblet this way. No problem.
