Tomorrow is a very special Sabbath, Shabbat Pesach. I spent almost two whole days this week wrestling over which songs to play in service. I probably overdid it, yes.
As a result, however, this is my excuse for a Friday post this week.
The three best things about being a Gentile living in a Jewish home at Passover:
- Buffalo chicken and blue cheese dressing on matzah.
- Liverwurst-matzah sandwich (with mustard).
- Bacon, lettuce, tomato, and matzah.
This is not crazy. Rather, because I’m a Gentile, it’s perfectly kosher for me to eat pork and to mix meat and milk. But Jewish homes contain no chametz during Passover, none, not even a little. Even a Jew’s dog goes unleavened during those 8 days. How much more so the husband of a Jew?
So no bread, no doughnuts, no cake, no cookies. Not really a problem for me, as I’m not supposed to be eating those anyhow. But a bacon double cheeseburger (without the bun)? No problem.
P.S. I actually don’t eat much matzah, either. Because it too is bread, and is loaded with carbs.
