I have finalized my menu for the seder this coming Saturday. It is the second Passover that I have ever hosted. While I am happy to host the seder dinner, it will be a bittersweet seder for my husband and me. The sweet part is that we will get to use the beautiful seder plate, matza plate and matza cover that my beloved cousins gave us as a wedding present, but the bitter part will be that my beloved cousin, Michael, passed away in January and will not be here to help us celebrate the seder. He was a vital part of our seder for the past three years and his absence will definitely be felt. We will miss you Michael, but will carry on in your memory.
The menu is as follows:
Salmon with a Tarragon Sauce (instead of gefillte fish)
Chicken Soup with Matza Balls
Italian Haroset alla Famiglia Nordell
Wild Rice Mix
Wild Citrus Sorbet (from the wild citrus trees around the moshav)
Pesach kasher vesameach lekulam (Happy Passover to Everyone) from Baroness Tapuzina and Family
