Who was banished to the backyard.
The younger ladies ruled the end of the table.... while Ash and Calli were up at the head...as the big kids... imagine that, Ash is a big kid.
We did the story of the exodus in true bruin boy style
But Kennahs favorite was frogs...ribbit ribbit ribbit

Bubbie and Ashleigh worked with Paige and Jello to make charoses... and a mess...
now one of my favorite memories of Passover goes all the way
back to being 8 years old and my grandmother (aka Bubbie Bubbie) let me make the chroses in her big wooden chopping bowl with the crack in the side. It is a great memory.
Anyway I digress...
Instead of a hand chopper and the old wooden bowl the girls will remember a salad shooter and a food processor.
Oh I would love to have that bowl again...

However as with many family favorites you take it and make it your own. In our house we have more than a few members who have passed on beef but will do turkey. So we have swapped out the 2 pounds of lean beef for turkey and we lighten the red hot peppers. but other than that we pretty much follow the recipe.

Why Matza Roca of course... everyone loves Almond Roca so why not a Pesachedich (spelling does not count) version of it ... and now Stacy is a a maven... she has called all her friends to tell them about it
a jelly roll pan is real good for this one. Line the pan with foil and then place the matzah pieces flat on the pan.
In a small pan melt the margarine and the brown sugar until is is all liquid and Incorporated.
when the margarine brown sugar mixture is ready pour it over the matzah and then back in the oven for 8 minuets. While the matzah is cooking, mix the chocolate chips and the almonds together in a bowl or cup that is easy to hold. Once the matzah has been in the oven for 8 minuets sprinkle the chocolate chip almond mixture over the matzah and put back in the oven for 4 minuets. Once it is done cooking take out the tray and smear the melted chocolate all over the matzah almost like buttering the matzah.
Let the tray cool and then break it up into small pieces put them in a plastic bag and give them out to friends and enjoy.
