Religious cooking exercises
We are of no real religion...but I like the kids to be aware of different religions, especially those associated with their ancestors. Therefore, we celebrate lots of things here! Passover just began, and Easter is on Sunday. Today I have stock going for Matzo Ball Soup and I will be making some Mandel bread cookies as well. I also made some yummy kugel the other day. We use these opportunities to discuss the religious significance and how the foods relate to the ceremonies. Not ready to hold a Seder, especially since Judaism was never my religion,but maybe someday. We will also celebrate Easter, with ham and all the fixins. Good thing I like to cook!
