I’ve already covered a ton of randomness this week, so I don’t have much to add today. I’m going to be taking it easy today and this weekend in general because it’s Passover starting tonight and my step-son is here for the weekend. I am technically Jewish, but am really more of an atheist now, but it’s my husband’s favorite holiday, so we’re trying to make it special. And I do really enjoy baking so I decided to go all out…
I spent yesterday preparing some of my favorite Passover things: vegetable kugel, vegetarian “chopped liver” spread with mushrooms & walnuts (a recipe from my mother-in-law), fennel salad, Matzo buttercrunch (OMG), and today I’m making an almond cake with fruit. Leo’s making the brisket and matzo ball soup. We’re having friends over, so we will NOT be eating all that ourselves. I’m spending extra time on the Peloton and at Pure Barre and refuse to feel guilty for eating any of it 🙂
Oh, and I did see that AllBirds is having a pop-in at my Nordstrom (and online), and I have to go there today anyway to pick up an order, so I will probably be getting a pair today. My Nikes desperately need replacing, and we’re going to New Orleans next weekend, so I really do need a pair of comfortable walking shoes for that.
I hope everyone who is celebrating either Passover or Easter this weekend has a wonderful time!!! And if you’re not celebrating either, have a beautiful weekend 🙂
Yum! I’ve made Deb Perelman (Smitten kitchen)’s mushroom pate and I’ve made David Lebovitz’s mushroom & lentil – and I like his better 😉 But I love real chicken liver pate too. No one else in my family does either, and it’s somewhat time consuming to make so I haven’t in ages.
I don’t celebrate religious holidays but I like to cook for them 😉 So husband and I are having grilled leg of lamb on Sunday and a sugar snap pea & radish salad.
I’m not a kimono gal nor a wide leg ankle jean – but dang that outfit looks awesome on you! Isn’t it so weird how my first reaction to seeing an outfit I love is to tell myself I don’t like the pieces and/or it would look horrible on me, instead of thinking “maybe I should actually try that sometime”?
I might be doing some closet cleaning this weekend – time to start seasonal changeovers….
I love those jeans on you!
Also wearing jeans (skinny, not wide), white top (woven, not knit), and kimono today (ES, but wool)! So not quite the same…
I love to cook for holidays (especially ones I don’t really celebrate) however all our friends are busy any my folks are out of town. So it’s just the three of us. Super tempted by the mushroom walnut spread…
Grechen Reiter says
so here’s the mushroom spread recipe i have:
1/2 pound mushrooms
chopped onions – i use a half large onion?
1 cup chopped walnuts
3T olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
cook the mushrooms and onions together with some of the oil, then transfer everything to a blender/food processor and process with more olive oil or water. add salt & pepper to taste. i like to make this ahead and chill it. it’s great with matzot 🙂 you can tweak it obviously, i haven’t though.
Hi Grechen – I checked out the ES website for the first time after reading this post; I think I have a new fashion obsession! What pieces would you recommend that you have found to be highly versatile in your closet? Not sure if you own any of these, but I am quite fond of the Clyde cotton canvas jumpsuit (also wondering how heavy this fabric is – I live in NYC so I should able to get a lot of use out of it season-wise), linen Work Pant (does the work pant have a high waist?), and Billow Skirt, as well as the linen Petra Crop. Thanks so much & love the blog!
