We're in the throes of Pesach cleaning here. The most important job is the kitchen, and the first level is tossing things out. In that regard, I take a bowl of leftovers out of the fridge. Jonathan looks at it and says, "Oh, no! That's the chicken and rice! We must keep it as *starter* for the next batch."

The fridge is empty of anything that I can or want to keep now. I just need to toss it all, wash the fridge and line the shelves. Same for freezer.

Which is why I'm on livejournal and Jonathan is watching, for the zillionth time, "The American Presient", starting the Aaron Sorkin reportory players.

Shopping part II completed. I now own a thirteen pound turkey and a nearly 6 lb brisket. Said brisket cost me over $10/lb.

We are reeling.

Still to do - cleaning out and lining those cabinets to be used on Passover7; cleaning, burning and covering stovetop, washing floors, filling cabinets with groceries and the Pesach utensils and purchasing the fruits and vegetables. And cooking.
