As Pe'sach (Passover) approaches tomoorow evening, there follows the weeks of Christian observances around Easter/Pascha. A good time to reflect on one important value that Christians (Orthodox, Catholic, Protestant) and Jews (Orthodox, Conservative, Reform) hold dear.
Food! Wink
At our house we're having:
Rack of lamb
Roast turkey
Avacodo and cucumber salad
Green beans with almonds
Potatoe kugel
Coconut mango ice cream with dark chocolate brownies
and of course the traitional Seder plate trimmings: green veggie, horshradish, charoset, and matzah (lots and lots opf matzah). I'll be spending a lot of time in the kitchen tommorow.
Anyone else planning to tip over the lunch wagon?

Wait a week and ask again. We are still fasting.

Some can or soup or other, probably stew or veggie or something

I'm crazy about how much I spend on food, I know.  police

 Cheesy

A turducken type dish with lamb stuffed with bits of chicken and ground beef.

I WISH! Definitely lamb. Bread and butter. Oh sweet Jesus. I haven't done this before, but I have a feeling that I might not be able to eat as much as I want to on Pascha...

The Charoset is SO delicious. I used to go to Seder dinners and I would eat that up. (Actually, I would eat everything, but you couldn't pay me to touch the gefilte fish.)

I can't think too much about it yet. I'm trying to take this (fasting) puppy in for a landing.

I'm trying to figure out a way to stuff a whole pizza into a Pascha Basket and come up with some reason why it's "tradition".

Pizza....

..it's round...representing the eternity of God.

The dough is made of yeast....which "rises", reminding us of the Risen Lord.

Oh wait....that is our Paska bread.  Smiley   Still...the symbolism could work.

Oh, yes, I've figured out several different ways it could work (it's covered in red tomato sauce symbolizing the Blood shed, loaded with different meats representing both sacrifice and the Great Commission as symbolized in St Peter's vision on the roof-top....).  I just have to figure out my story and stick to it.  On the plus side pizza utilizes just about every item in the traditional Pascha basket save horseradish, an egg, and chocolate. 

On that note, does a Cadbury egg count toward both chocolate and the egg?

I've never actually put chocolate in my Easter basket for blessing.

hmmmm.....  I smell a new tradition coming on.

Our Ukrainian Pascha feast includes:
Ham, representing the richness of the feast, and our freedom on Christ to partake of pork (thank you St. Peter)
beets & horseradish (known as "hrin" in Ukrainian) representing the blood of Christ, and the bitterness of life (also a reminder of the Sedar meal)
Paska bread, representing the Holy Spirit
cabbage rolls, known as "Halubshi", from the Ukrainian word for "dove" (I have to admit, that one is a stretch for me)
boiled eggs, just as all life starts with the egg, it is representative of how all life comes through Christ
kielbasi & saurkraut (because what Ukrainian meal would be complete without it?)
potato salad
turkey
stuffing
butter in the shape of a lamb
varenyky (or more commonly known by it's Polish name, Pierogie)
and a whole slew of desserts.
