Several items of [debatable] interest:
1) It’s an age-old question: What to serve for lunch on Erev Pesach?
After all, one can no longer eat chametz, but matzah isn’t yet an option either.
When I was a little girl, my grandmother a”h would always prepare boiled potatoes and gribbenes for lunch on Erev Pesach. (I ate the gribbenes. The boiled potatoes? Not so much…)
Was this the entire menu? I don’t remember, but perhaps some of our more veteran readers can chime in? (Hint, hint…)
In any event, here in TRLEOOB*, we generally partake of things like gefilte fish, tuna fish, or even yogurt – with, of course, that highly-traditional Erev Pesach delicacy: KashLa”P potato chips. (Yes, I am sure that “traditional” means what I think it means. Why do you ask? ;-))
What does your family eat for lunch on Erev Pesach?
2) Earlier today, we were discussing how if Mashiach comes – as we fervently hope and pray he will – in the next 24 hours, we’ll IY”H be privileged to enjoy the Korban Pesach and have our Seder in Yerushalayim.
This prompted one of the younger Shiputzim children to wonder, “Will we stay by strangers?”
Without missing a beat, MAG responded, “They’re not STRANGERS. They’re, er, blogging friends…”

The entire Our Shiputzim staff wishes all our readers a very happy and kosher Pesach.
May we all be privileged to eat in rebuilt Yerushalayim from the zevachim and from the pesachim, speedily and in our days. Amen.
