Saturday night we celebrated the first night of Passover with a Seder and a festive meal.
Grilled lamb chops, mashed potatoes, asparagus with sauce gribiche
Since this was a festive occasion we were not counting calories and enjoyed our mashed potatoes with cream and butter and the asparagus topped with sauce gribiche, a vinaigrette enriched with a hard boiled egg.
I enjoyed setting our table using John’s mother’s candlesticks and my grandmother’s china. Our table looked lovely and brought back memories of holiday celebrations gone by.
Our dinner started with matzo ball soup.
And finished up with our daughter’s fabulous almond macaroons.
We had a wonderful time even though it was just the three of us. Next year we are hoping for a celebration that can include all our family members and the virus which has decimated so many families will have been subdued.
