Our custom is potatoes and eggs. Usually cubed or slightly mashed, with oil and salt, pepper.
I fast since I’m a b’chor.
We try not to eat things we will eat at the seder. So we generally eat salami or hot dogs or onion kugel or mushrooms and onions.
Hot dogs and hamburgers off the grill with potato salad and cole slaw on plates. Potato chips as a substitute for buns
Rice & meatballs. Vegetable soup. Grilled vegetables. Fried chicken.
Whatever is left in the frig that is not chometz gamur and is not matzoh or something special for the seder….
Meatballs and Quinoa and mashed potatoes with fruit as dessert and snacks.
Deep fried Oreos.
In the morning, I usually eat whatever the shul is serving at the siyum – I’ve had a bagel, I’ve had donuts, cake, it all depends on where I am for Pesach.
For lunch, my mother used to make a Shepard’s Pie. I haven’t been home for Pesach in a few years, so my wife hasn’t had to prepare lunch. When we were by her family, it was shnitzel (with potato starch coating, not matzah meal, don’t worry!) and some potatoes.
This year, I’ll be at home, but I’m not sure what my wife has planned.
“Hot dogs and hamburgers off the grill . . .”
That’s what we’re having for lunch on the last day of the chag. Chicken wings too, I think.
After a race to the bakery ten minutes before zman, we have potato kugel pizza for lunch. Then I snack on lettuce as a I check it throughout the rest of the day.
This is your day to hold your desires back as you prepare for the Seder night-one of the holiest days of the year.
