It seems my domestic quota has run out. I was cooking the pumpkin and butternut chunks for our Matza Lasagna. I was watching TV. All of a sudden we smell burning. Lets just say I spent the last 15 minutes scrubbing burnt butternut and pumpkin off my ‘non-stick’ pot.
I managed to rescue some of the veg, lets just hope the lasagna turns out half way decent.
‘Matza’ and ‘Lasagna’ are not words one usually hears together so Im not entirely sure it would be my fault if this didn’t turn out ok…
Today I start cooking for Pesach.
The chicken soup is simmering on the stove as I type. Its the first time I have made ‘real’ chicken soup and I am hoping it is up to my moms standard. Once the soup is done I will let it cool and freeze it only to be defrosted on Wednesday morning.
Tomorrow I will be making this pot roast. Sounds sooooo yummy I cant wait for Wednesday night.
In addition to the soup and roast, in great Jewish tradition, we are having a very full menu.
