Easter & Passover To-Go on the CT Shoreline


Just because we’re isolating doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate the springtime holidays. This crazy year, my sisters and I will do a FaceTime mini-seder with Manischewitz and matzo. I’ll also get a ham and make something slightly sinful like mac and cheese or potato gratin. We celebrate all the holidays at our house! If you need some help pulling yours together, here’s where you can find the fixings.
