Welcome to the Kosher Cooking Carnival #28 - Dayeinu Edition! The carnival is a few days early because I realize that I probably won't have time nor inclination on Taanis Esther to post about food - talk about torture. Also, Blogger had been giving me trouble saving posts as drafts, so it's use it or lose it, so to speak.
Looking back, here's a listing of all the previous KCC's:
Why am I calling it the Dayeinu edition? Because Purim hasn't even started yet, I haven't even begun to clean for Pesach, and already, I've had enough!

I am wondering if, due to certain rabbanim discouraging Pesach hotel getaways, perhaps there are some last minute bargain bin packages for sale? Anyone? If you can't sell your vacation package directly to another Jew - my neighbor, Mr. Rajesh Pilot, will be happy to purchase it from you and then resell it to me. Let me know!
In the meantime, after the Purim seuda, I will begin the aluminumation of my home in preparation for Pesach as illustrated here:

I love the stuff, but in Chicago there was a warning about using fresh asparagus - I guess there's little bugs that are hard to see at the tips. Just using the stalks doesn't have the same appeal.
