We started a family tradition a few years ago of celebrating Passover.  We are Christian, not Jewish, but we love the history and symbolism of this ancient holiday and it has become an important part of our Easter celebration.

This year we invited our friends the Hansens over, and enjoyed a lovely meal together.  I tried a new Lamb recipe this year (thank you Martha Stewart) that was truly amazing!  We braised the lamb in some wine for over 3 hours in the oven, and then reduced the liquid down to a thick syrup which made the most incredible sauce.  This recipe is a keeper!

The boys played while we read from the Haggadah, but they loved searching for the Affikomen.  It was a great evening, and it was wonderful to reflect on the beautiful symbolism of the Passover.
