Tag Archives: Pesach

On the Eighth Day of Pesach I still had left to eat:

Eight ounces charoses
Seven tablespoons chrain (white)
Six pickled gherkins
Five free range eggs (2 hardboiled, 3 uncooked)
Four gefilte fish pieces
Three boxes matzo (1 Rakusens, 2 Yehuda)
Two matzo balls (in chicken soup)
And a box of mint chocolate thins!

This truly was the remains of my Pesach food—at the end of the holiday on Saturday evening.
Disclaimer: a few numbers may have been adjusted (but only slightly!) to fit the story 🙂

(with apologies to Israel Beilin)

I’m dreaming of a white Pesach
Not like the ones I used to know
Where parents coerce,
children to rehearse
To chant the Question re: ma-tzo.

I’m dreaming of a white Pesach
With every matzo (it’s not grated)
May the seder let you be sated
And your week not end constipated.
