This is your friendly, annual reminder to make your notes for next year’s Pesach tonight. As you’re packing up your Pesach items!
Here’s what I make sure to include in my notes:
- What recipes worked?
(I made really easy sweet and sour meatballs – one part duck sauce to one part tomato sauce. Kids loved it! I’ll definitely make it again. Our lemon strawberry sorbet and marshmallow clusters continue to be hits, too. And these flourless chocolate cookies were new to my repertoire, and definitely a winner.)
- Did any of your recipes flop – make a note so you don’t make them again next year?!
- Did you pack away any unopened food stuffs for next year? I keep my spices from year to year – I just tape the lid and store the containers in a ziplock bag.
- Did you overbuy (or underbuy) any particular ingredients?
This year, I am making my notes in Google Docs, and then sharing a link in Google calendar for a month before next Pesach. That way, a friendly reminder from myself will pop up just as I start stressing again about the holiday!
And while you still have Pesach on the brain, be sure to check the clearance aisles at your grocery store — many of you will be lucky enough to find non-perishable Kosher for Pesach items for 50% off or more. What a nice way to get a jump start on saving for your April 2017 food budget.
