The Last Supper

What can beat Babette's Feast? How about Seder? It was good enough for Jesus.

Of course, we had to pose for the camera to recreate Michelangelo's famous meal.

Philip's Place

Percy enjoyed his first dinner club and most especially the paw-washing rituals.

Our Order of Worship was taken from this rabbinical source:

Jeff; sherry and a Bordeaux-type red

We all painted crosses on the doors in lamb's blood; our first-borns were fine. Not so sure about any Egyptian neighbors though.

Here was the Seder plate of ritual food; rubber eggs, bitter herbs (endive) and charoset (here lovingly arranged crucifixion-style). The shankbone was replaced by the equally symbolic walrus penis bone (which was also not easten).

Hummus and olives: Marianne.

Chicken Soup with Matzoh Balls: Jolee

Braised Lamb of God: Philip

It wasn't kosher but hallal killed.

Persian Charoset: Preston

This symbolized the mortar used to make the Egyptian slave-owners' pyramids. It is historically untrue (they were neither built with mortar nor by slaves) and tasted better too.

Macaroons: Nancy (with the orange zest option)

112 Eatery

Nancy proposed Minneapolis's 112 Eatery on a snowy March 2 (the very next day being Craig's birthday). They had also just sold Nancy's house and bought a new one together. We ate, drank, and didn't have to shop or do the dishes.

Marianne is pleased with her duck dish.

Philip selected a cheeseburger.

Jeff the unpronouncable greens.

To Jolee went the ribs.

While Preston went for the tuna.

This looks like a sirloin

No idea what this was.

At last dessert: Tres Leches, Carrot Cake and Banana Cream Tart.

Next date:
April 7 at Philip's
