Yom haShoah

This was my quote of the day that is randomly chosen by my Palm Pilot from a list of quotes each day:

God is hiding in this world. Our task is to let the Divine emerge from our deeds
— Abraham Joseph Heschel

Blessed is the match consumed in kindling flame.
Blessed is the flame that burns in the secret fastness of the heart.
Blessed is the heart with strength to stop its beating for honor’s sake.
Blessed is the match consumed in kindling flame.
— Hannah Szenes

Pesach 2006 – The Menu

The links are to either the recipe or the cookbook. There are a couple of things that don’t have recipe, so that’s why they aren’t linked.

The Menu:

Fish and Salad
Smoked Salmon and Egg Canapes on Matzah Crackers
Spinach Salad with Grapefruit, Orange and Avocado

Main Course
Lamb Kabobs
Quinoa Salad
Cucumber Lemon Salad
Mushroom and Tofu Marsala
Algerian-style Charoset

Dessert
White Stilton with Mango and Ginger
Pineapple
Kiwi

p.s. yes, I know that tofu is not kosher according to Ashkenazi — but I tend to follow Sephardic rules for Pesach. And since I’m serving cheese as dessert after lamb kabobs — I think it’s clear that I don’t keep trad-kosher. And yes, the lamb is from an eco-friendly farm. I’ve even met the farmers and they are good, decent people who believe in doing things right and treating the animals with respect.
