The chicken soup is done! (Cleaning the 16 qt stock pot will be a bitch)

Based on my experience with making fish fumet with a whole halibut frame, I would give your pot a decent washing then set it out in the air (balcony?) for several days and then one more light wash.    Let Mother Nature do part of your work.

What is a balcony and how does one come by one?  I'm not fancy like small h.

And they'd never ask me to put on tefillin--I get the Shabbat candles kit.

I used to work at a production company on Park Ave South, and every so often some guys would come by trying to get a minyan together. They'd pop out of the elevator and ask whether there were any Jews in the house.* So whomever was up front would fetch me out of my dark little editing room, and I'd toddle up and say "I'm Jewish! How can I help you?" And the guys would shift around a bit and mumble to each other and then get back in the elevator. This happened a couple of times a month.

*Everyone at the company was either Jewish or South American, not sure why, but there it is.

It's not as if the original item (either the actual one or the one in the folk tale) was made of wheat or bore any resemblance to the more modern cracker (which is the way it is more for commercial reasons than anything else), although I have to say I tasted a bit of manischewitz whole wheat matzo and it certainly is a bread of affliction. 

I put in an inquiry with the family in Venezuela.

a friend on facebook asked:

“What is Matzoh Farfel historically? My mom used a box - like short noodles fried. Recipes on line say it's broken matzoh, but that's brei. This is ground matzoh and egg, grated, boiled (like passatelli), then fried with onion and chicken stock.”

i thought some of you might know.

Yes - for instance:

Yehuda Matzo Farfel is coarsely broken matzo for coating and cooking. (from Yehuda)

Yup crumbled matzoh is the kosher for passover style. The pasta looking ones are not KforP, I think those are the ones my grandmother referred to as "egg barley", though hers looked more broken.

Here's our menus for the first two days as well as everything that we made leading up to the holiday. Kid was incredibly helpful - made all of the baked goods and I let him use the paring knife unsupervised for the first time as he put together the potato salad.
