This week has flown by. Between traveling last weekend, prepping the house for the brokers open, running, laundry, and now preparing for Passover (and Easter!), I’m glad it’s almost over. 🙂
I’ll be cooking and baking all day in preparation for Passover. Technically we should be celebrating tonight, but I have a long run scheduled for Saturday morning. The last thing I need is to stuff my face full of delicious Passover food, only to regret that decision the following morning 5 miles into my run. Coincidentally there are two nights of Seder, so we’re opting to celebrate the second night on Saturday. Which means I get to eat all the food and not have to worry about the repercussions. Yay!

Want to know what I’m cooking? Great because I’m going to tell you. 🙂 On the list is charoset, peach farfel, and brownies. I’ll need to hard boil a dozen eggs, and make matzah ball soup. I know it doesn’t seem like that much but believe me — it is. Whenever we have a tiny Seder with just us, we always end up with a ton of leftovers. Not that I’m complaining, though, because all this cooking takes time so I like being able to enjoy it for a few days after the big meal!

I’ll also have to assemble Easter baskets at some point, but that may end up being a last minute thing on Saturday night. Oh, and my husband and I are giving our kids a mini Easter egg hunt in our backyard, so we’ll have to fill some eggs. Good times!
I’m looking forward to running with my girls on Saturday. It’s been two weeks since we last ran together. I missed them! #reunitedatlast Thursday was finally warm enough to rock some capris, and I ran with Julie (yay!) which was a welcome change. But of course it’s going to be cold again on Saturday. 2014-15 is going down as the winter that wouldn’t quit.

That’s all from here. I hope everyone celebrating Passover has wonderful Seders, and everyone celebrating Easter has a great time egg hunting and decorating! Happy Holidays, friends!
Tell me… how does YOUR family celebrate Easter? If you’re Jewish, do you do two nights of Seder?
