a big seder

successfully accomplished a large seder last night. this was my first passover meal executed with friends, no blood-relatives. am exhausted from 2 days of cooking and hours of standing on my feet in the kitchen, so this is all you're gonna get.

we made:

+mini passover seder plates, that included an apple + asian pear haroseth and a parsley salad with lemon-tahini dressing.
+matzo ball soup
+beef brisket with merlot + prunes
+pan-roasted chicken with madeira sauce
+roasted baby carrots
+salt-crusted beets with horseradish creme fraiche
+green peas with bacon and shallots
+horseradish mashed potatoes with caramelized onions
+chocolate covered strawberries

me with dan barber's recipe for salt-crusted beets!
