Seder Discussion

I know this doesn't belong here, but I'll jump in on the Seder talks too.

I got to spend both Seders with my brother and his family. It was lovely spending time with his two young sons and we had a wonderful time. Ufortunately I don't quite have the same tastes as my sister-in-law (who belives in boiling chicken, serving the liquid as soup and the chicken as the main course and cooking brocoli by microwaving it for a really really long time with no seasonings) but I appreciate that she worked hard to make a holiday meal for us all. My brother made his cranberry orange chutney which is wonderful and we had an amazing assortment of fresh and dried fruits for dessert (dates almost the size of my fist and blonde figs!).

Also, since they are orthodox and couldn't start preparing until after Shabat was over, we didn't start until really late and I could only stay for the first half of the Seder and the meal. I left at 3 am, just when they started benching before the second half of the seder! They always read the entire haggada... cover to cover... in english AND hebrew and often discuss sections (not that I mind the discussions ).

It was a very nice seder, and I really appreciated being able to be with my brother and his family... but I'm hoping my mom does the Seder next year!

I don't have a kosher kitchen so unfortunately I can't do it myself

O.K. back to the juicer question :-). Waring makes good quality professional juicers. Normally they are pretty pricey but I have seen them for around 50 bucks at SAMS. Although I like others don't own it my sister in law does and at every family get together she makes fresh juices mixing fruits and veggies that we all enjoy.

I am not much of a gadget person and I would rather buy readymade juice than make it at home (that's one thing I am lazy at making from scratch except once in a blue moon).

If I had unlimited kitchen space and a lot of disposable income then I would like to own one too. From when I used one at work, I remember it being a pain in the butt to clean though. I don't foresee myself ever buying one.

I have a Jack LaLane juicer. My son liked it so much he bought one too. They're definately a pain to clean, but worth it. My favorite juice is carrot, cucumber, and apple.

Carrot and apple sounds really good, cucumber though, hm, I'd have try it before making any comments.

Oh, my, they must be something of an ultra-ultra-ultra orthodox, cause beeng ultra-orthodox, (as some call us, Chabadnicks) we finished at 1:30 and we did talked about all kind of things. Not sure about brocoli either, how could she use the microwave on Yom Tov? Well whatever.
We were not at home either and the brisket was so bad, I had nightmares afterwords. I had to make one for intermidiate days and was afraid to ruin it. Thank G-d it turnd out great, everybody loved it.
