Pesach Cook-Along, 2009 Part 2

The rest of Wednesday and Thursday was spent in a flurry of cooking, yet more shopping, hunting for the mysteriously disappeared Hagaddahs (which are somewhere in limbo between S&K's house and mine. My theory is that they were in a bag after being returned here, and mistakenly got tossed during a bout of housecleaning last summer), hunting bookstores for more Hagaddahs in the version I like, attending a lovely first night Seder at S&K's house, and hosting second night at mine.

Whew.

Here's a bit more of what I cooked.

Herb-stuffed eggs, to go with gefilte fish as a first course.

I didn't grab photos of the garlic-roasted potatoes and the salad platter.

Lemon Merengue Torte (before serving I put sliced berrries and whipped cream on top, very pretty. This was a keeper, one I'll absolutely make again)

We also had awesome desserts brought by others--chocolate macaroons and fantastic homemade chocolates from sister sue and her finacee David; almond torte from cousin Jon, macaroons from cousin karen, and flourless chocolate cake from Mom.

This sounds like a spectacular dinner. My mouth is watering now. I'm really intrigued with the artichokes stuffed with lamb.

My mouth is watering, Amy. Great dishes.
