We’re having a Seder at our house this year, which is lovely. Two families are joining us, which is even lovelier.
One is the family of my dear friend, Tara, about whom I’ve written in the past. It’s beyond delightful that she now lives 15 minutes away. She’s coming with her husband and two children. Wonderful, charming, picky children. OK, picky I can handle. I can do picky. In fact, I can do picky vegetarians. I can handle two little picky vegetarians, in addition to my picky vegetarian. (Did I mention Zach has gone vegetarian, which makes almost no difference to his diet?)
The other family is a close college friend and her daughter. Also picky. And kosher. That’s OK, I can handle picky, vegetarian, and kosher. With serious food allergies.
So all I need to do is design a menu with no nuts, sesame, meat, leavened bread, or flour. With something that appeals to three children who eat nothing but bread and peanut butter and another who mostly likes hamburgers.
I’ll be accepting any and all advice, here.
