Passover Menu Plan 2024

My apologies for getting this post up so close to Pesach. I actually planned my menu 10 days ago, but it’s been such a crazy week here in Israel, that I have hardly had time to think, let alone post.

That said, tradition is tradition, so I hope in better late than never fashion, I am sharing our menu plan for Pesach.

As you may remember, I like to plan out every meal for Pesach, because that’s the only way I can make sure I get the right groceries in advance! Also, we eat gebrochts and all manner of vegetables (with and without peels), so I know some of our choices won’t work for everyone.

Lastly, keep in mind that since I’m in Israel, so I’ve got one less seder to plan and one less day of chagz.

  1. I forgot o say I bought a lamb shank just like we had growing up. At the end of our meal I always ate it cold. My sister and brother didn’t want it, so it was my tradition.
