The holiday is late this year so plenty of time to find interesting recipes. Last year's thread has links to the previous years.

    The only thing I care about is Matza Brittle. It's like crack to me.

    Thinking about making that brisket already. Part Mom's recipe, part Emiral, part my own touch based on what I'm thinking that day. Sometimes a little smokier, sometimes a little hotter, sometimes sweeter. All about the gravy!

    Anybody think they might need to adjust the seders because of travel issues? It would have been nice to get our son down from Seattle - not sure if he would have come but certainly won’t travel now.

    One thought I had about the Grand Princess passengers about to be quarantined for 14 days - will they get their Passover shopping done when they finally get home?

    We're thinking we may not be able to attend the extended family seder and will need to do something on our own. Recommending that kids do not travel. Oy.

    I saw this recipe and thought it would be interesting; I just wonder it if would become a mess when slicing.

    Our plan was to have seder with family Wednesday night, and then fly to visit my daughter and her family on Thursday. She had planned to come in town, but decided not to put the baby on a plane right now. We got a great price for flights, but will cancel if we have to.

    Pavlovas can be a little messy when slicing. Best to use a serrated knife and gentle sawing motion. Or make them into individual mini pavlovas instead of a big one.

    This is one of my favorite chocolate Passover desserts - like a rich Mounds bar. http://www.foodfixkitchen.com/flourless-chocolate-coconute-cake/ It might be too much for just the two of us though. Looks like we'll be doing a teleseder with the son again.

    I also have a fudge brownie recipe so might do a half recipe of that.

    One of my go-to breakfast recipes, originally from a Weight Watchers book:

    Banana Matzo Farfel

    1 medium banana peeled and cut in half
    2 eggs
    1/2 cup skim milk
    1 tsp sugar
    1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
    1 ounce (about 1/2 cup) matzo farfel
    2 tsp maple syrup

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat two 10-oz custard cups with nonstick spray (we actually just use butter).

    In blender combine 1 banana half with eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon and process until smooth about 1 minute; stir in matzo farfel. Dice remaining banana half; add to farfel mixture and stir to combine. Pour half of mixture into each custard cup; place cups on baking sheet and bake 20 to 25 minutes (until a knife in the center comes out clean). Serve each portion topped with 1 tsp syrup.

    Are we still doing Passover this year?!?

    My family at the Bat Mitzvah we were all at on Saturday were utter failures at social distancing and not kissing and hugging. No way I’m sitting around a table packed with 40 or so of them.

    Bumping this thread because people are starting to reconsider Passover plans per the coronavirus thread. Having fewer people, or not going elsewhere, could require new ideas for recipes and general meal planning.

    We’re almost certainly having both seders for just the of us, one of which will be a teleseder with our son in Seattle. Our synagogue still is showing a second night community seder, but they’ve stopped Shabbat meals so not sure they mean to do this. Reservations can be made through April 6 so plenty of time to decide.

    We're doing a virtual seder with our kids this year. Usually, we all attend an extended family gathering, but that's not going to happen. We've never hosted a seder before.

    The plan at the moment is to Zoom/facetime/skype and gather for a meal. Differing levels of observance (but obviously we're open to using technology) - any suggestions for making this a success?

    We've done this in the past and will be doing it on a broader basis this year. We scanned and emailed the haggadah to everyone "attending". We always go around the table and take turns reading a portion of it. With everyone having access to the same one, we could still do that.

    The email quoted in #13 did not say that they hope the changes will make it more likely for COVID-19 to pass over your family?

    Since my wife started her new job here recently, we weren't going to travel anyway. However, we do get our daughter home with us, so she will, once again, ask the Four Questions. What we won't have, though, are the "orphans" as was our custom for years (anybody who was stuck in town without family), or any of our friends (who would have had difficulty coming anyway, since we're no longer on the other side of town).

    It will be the smallest Seder which I have attended, and the smallest, by far, that I have run. We have a 5-pack of Matzot Yehudah (my favorite after Cohen-Halperin, which you cannot get here), and are already building up the rest of the meal and Seder Plate.

    I haven't decided what I am making for the meal, except the chicken soup (and my wife's kneidalach). Something stew-like, probably.

    At the moment I’m just hoping that I will find a chicken or two to make soup. And of course eggs - usually need at least five dozen to get through the holiday.

    While my husband always complains about keeping Passover, he declared this year he really is not going to! Of course this could change if I can get groceries myself, but at the moment, that is looking promising.

    Husband was in grocery yesterday and found six whole chickens in the meat case, so I told him to bring one home. It’s in the freezer and I’m relieved we will at least have soup for the seders. I’ve also decided not to be picky about eggs - always get Eggland but now will take what we can get.
