I feel bad for Passover, guys. Easter is such a pastel-hued harlot who is always stealing the spotlight. How can Passover compete? All it has is weird gummy candies and some more different chocolate covered gummy candies and Gifilte fish.
Easter has caramel Cadburry eggs and Whopper eggs an Reese’s eggs and giant chocolate bunnies.
But…Passover has matzo, and matzo is pretty awesome. You can make matzo brittle , people. Matzo brittle almost makes up for Gefilte fish…almost.
What better way to celebrate the awesome unleavened bread that is matzo than build a house out of it? When I first ran it by my Jewish husband, I expected him to be all “That’s not a thing, babe.”
And he was, but only after he expressed unbridled joy for the idea.
ANYMATZOBALLS. Let’s do this thing.
1. Assemble your supplies.
This was pretty much the entire Kosher for Passover section at Publix. The Easter section was of course obscene, but let’s not talk about that candy-colored tramp.
2. Lay down the foundation. I used peanut butter.
Lay it down thick.
This was not enough peanut butter to keep the walls up. I would have been frustrated, but I kept saying “Shaka, when the walls fell,” and giggling to myself.
3. Put in reinforcements.
I used some coconut marshmallows around the foundation to prop that business up.
Darmok and Jalad, at Tenagra.
Mine is not nearly as festive as the one on the Epicurious site.
It’s okay, I guess.
So yeaaahhhh…it’s okaaaay.
My life can basically be summed up by the following:
WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK?
