Matzo and Mouthwatering Memories

Matzo sandwich:
1. Break one sheet of matzo exactly down the center.
2. Spread one half with cream cheese.
3. Spread the other half with peanut butter.
4. Spread strawberry jam on both sides.
5. Place the two pieced together to make a delicious sandwich!

Passover began at sundown Monday and will continue through next Monday. Although I no longer “observe” the holiday rituals as I did as a child, namely giving up all leavened flour products for the holiday duration, Passover continues to hold a dear place in my heart. My parents, who are now in their early 80’s, fly out to celebrate with us each year, my father leads a liberal version of the Passover Seder, and I become reacquainted with matzo. Just the smell of it reminds me of many mouthwatering childhood memories.

I have been enjoying matzo sandwiches all week for breakfast and invite you to give it a try as well! There are still a few boxes of matzo on the store shelves! Enjoy.

The best thing I did when I discovered I had Type 2 Diabetes was to call Robin Mallery. She coached me to craft a plan to turn this condition around, and the encouragement to believe that I can.  Instead of feeling overwhelmed, I am managing well, using Robin’s program of small steps, achievable goals, and positive reinforcement.  She’s not only a fountain of knowledge and experience, but a loving teacher and motivator.  For the first time in years, I don’t feel helpless about eating and weight gain.  Thank you, Robin!
