Last day to prepare for our Seder. I trimmed the cooked brisket and I must have thrown away at least a lb. of fat. I decided to make a almond flour cake with lemon/ white chocolate topping. I would love to snitch a piece of it. there is no way on it to be discrete about taking a sample, so I have to wait . My son is making ,from scratch,homemade chicken soup and matzoh balls. We have a deal going , so everyone knows that he is making it from scratch. I role play about “ who made this wonderful soup”? “ From scratch”. ? We’ve rehearsed. I foundManischvitz wine at our grocery store. It was there all along, I just didn’t see it. It was above my eye level.I used a wine that labeled itself” fruitsecco”, for the charotzi( a mixture of finely chopped apples, cinnamon, sugar and chopped nuts with enough sweet wine to hold it together) . The fruitsecco actually tastes very refreshing. But I need the Kosher for Passover Concord grape wine to make the charotzi .This is tradition. Somethings you just can’t fool with.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
