Passover Simplicity

The culinary highlights of the 1980s’ Passovers in central Maine were different for all of us. My parents are still talking about my Aunt Giselle’s brisket and her poached salmon – because of course she made both (may she rest in peace); one brother loved Manischewitz macaroons and the other loved canned pineapple slices (this was Maine in the 80s, way before tropical fruit was imported to rural areas). I looked forward to the kosher “fruit” candy slices which I ate sitting beside their miniature David and Goliath sculpture in the living room. Orange flavor was my favorite.

But as I’ve gotten older – and given up my predilection for candy – I’ve actually come to enjoy Passover and the intelligence of the food framework that accompanies it.

This is a post about shifting perspective. Every day, in every aspect of my life, I am reminded that it is the small shifts of perspective that bring about change. Perspective is the pair of glasses you see yourself and the world through.
