What’s for dinner?

While you’re doing this week’s meal planning, don’t forget the little cookbook in your Home Lesson packet with traditional recipes for Passover.  This is one of those occasions where a great lesson is meant to center around food!  Not only do each of the foods have a special meaning, but all the major events of Holy Thursday took place at this meal.  It makes for a memorable lesson to teach about those events while actually eating the kind of meal Jesus might have had on that day.  You can find a brief explanation for each of the traditional foods in the booklet, as well as the recipes you’ll need.

While it’s not quite as authentic, my family used to do this meal a day early.  We tried (really, we did!), but a leisurely meal, a 20 minute drive, and getting to a busy evening Mass on Holy Thursday in time to get seating for seven never quite worked for us.
