Chametz shrine

March 29, 2010

chametz shrine, Debra Solomon,

Shrine of *Chametz in the foyer belies the seat-of-the-pants factor of Pesach-ultra-lite. This is me nullifying my chametz.

And here’s another question for tonight: What kind of gawd would ask us to throw out locally grown soft whole wheat flour from the ancient fields of Osdorp?

Chametz shrine, Debra Solomon,

Happy Passover, y’all.

  1. It’s very interesting to me that the 5 grains are the glutinous grains that so badly affect celiac sufferers (if “oats” is actually an ancient wild spelt.) Makes me wonder how much more our ancestors knew about digestive disorders and the foods that affect them.

  2. Interesting observation, but mtazah is also made from wheat.

    But then matzah is called the bread of affliction…

  4. That video is not suitable for all ages, so I’ll put it on my intimate relationships and technology blog.

    A video response will arrive shortly.
