Food & Wine in Westfield - Final Dinner Tuesday, Need Tasters
Somehow when I plotted out my calendar of what recipes to cook on which days, I mixed up the first night of Passover. When I realized the first night of Passover was tonight, I thought I missed my chance to conclude this cooking challenge by the end of March. Between the secular calendar and jewish dietary restrictions, I thought I was up the river without a paddle, much like baby Moses himself.
But God must be smiling upon me, or hungry, because the menu I chose for my last night of the Food & Wine Challenge in Westfield is entirely Kosher for Passover*! And, there is one more night in March, Tuesday night.
My husband is away and will miss the Great Sixty Minute Meals: Italian Dinner with Grilled Balsamic and Garlic Flank Steak, Gorgonzola Roasted Mushrooms and Onions and Polenta with Chives.
So I will have plenty of food to taste. If you have wanted to be a taster and haven't done so, I hope you will consider stopping by for a to go plate or to sit and enjoy with a glass of wine. Second Seder anyone?
*The meal itself is not everyday Kosher as one dish has meat and one dish has cheese. But eaten separately both are OK for Sephardic Passover observation.
