Wordless Wednesday: Passover's Over, It's Cookie Time!
For the Eight Days of Passover it is traditional to refrain from eating leavened foods as a reminder of when the Jews fled from Egypt with such haste they didn't have time to wait for their bread to rise.
In our house we keep Passover loosely - essentially eating everything but what I think of as "blatant bread," or as I overheard my daughter telling her friend, "We're not strict, but we're not careless either. We get the Passover cereal."
Needless to say, the kids were happy to go out and get a cookie at (almost) sundown.
