Today should officially be declared “Pesach Cooking Frenzy” cause I’m guessing I’m not alone when I say I have spent the entire day in the kitchen getting ready for Passover. Who’s with me? Can I get a Yes Ma’am! It has been a nutty day to say the least and while I’m not completely finished, I’m much further along than I expected to be and have by far beat my record from last year. Having a full free day to cook definitely helps.
No time for recipes today but here’s what’s on our Seder menu so far. Pictured above, Tri-color Gefilte fish in progress. I make this dish for almost every holiday now and it has become a fav with everything except for my hubbie. He still can’t stand gefilte fish, but he’s OK with it because, as he says, it’s one less thing for him to fill-up on before the “real” food is served.
Next up, what is affectionately called the “Meat log” in our house. I first made this delish dish last year for Pesach and now many of us our addicted. Pictured above is the meat portion of the dish before I roll it around mashed potatoes. To me, this one says “southern cooking” all over it. LOVE IT!
One of my favorite foods is the Rotisserie Chicken that my hubbie makes on the grill. But when we looked into what it would take to Kasher our grill for Pesach, we decided it would be easier to just buy a new grill instead. Fortunately, I found a great recipe for Slow Roasted Rotisserie Chicken in the Kosher by Design Passover cookbook. Look how beautiful this bird turned out. I wish we were having this for dinner tonight!
As I mentioned in my Macaroon’s post, I’m not a big fan of Passover desserts simply because by the time I’ve cooked all day to prep for the Seder, I’m too tired to even think about dessert. But I decided to give this Crumb Cake a try and it was fairly easy, however it doesn’t look all that great. I’ll let you know how it turns out taste wise.
How about you … have you been in the kitchen all day today? What yummy treats have you prepared for Passover?
Happy Pesach and Happy Kosher
