Oh, My Gosh! Passover is coming fast…April 22 is the first night.
Searching for an appropriate video to share with you was quite a journey – my goodness, what passes for good taste these days! Worse than bitter herbs! One of the first videos was, I kid you not, ‘Passover 2016 (April) 70 + 1260 years ending NOW’ (by someone named 9Nania….whatever that means). The description begins, ‘2016 marks the end of both 70 and 1260 years when the Bible says the meteorite will hit. Passover 2016 occurs on the exact 70th anniversary….’. I’d already checked out at ‘meteorite’.
Then I found one of those cute, kid-made videos by a brother/sister team for what they called a ‘matzah cookie ball’. They tried making these with chocolate chips….no, sorry, not for this blog. An atrocious way to ruin perfectly good chocolate!
I did find a video to share. But before we get to that, here are a few items we’ve got in The Gift Shop for Passover….besides of course seder plates, Miriam and Elijah cups, clear acrylic matzah holders, spatulas, frog shaped ice cubes, cookbooks….
So, nu, what did I choose for this month’s video? Joan Rivers and Martha Stewart making matzah houses. Although I’m a very proper and perhaps prudish person from last century, the bit with Joan Rivers and flat matzah had me plotzing. And when Joan used the B-word on Martha, well let’s just say it’s worth twenty minutes of your life. Besides, those decorated matzah look pretty tasty!
Enjoy the video, laugh a lot and come by the shop and fill up a bag to take home for Passover.
