The hubs and I just returned from having Seder over at our friends' house. It was the first time either of us had ever been to a Seder. We are so stuffed! Aside from all the ritualistic stuff (the four glasses of wine--we had mini glasses, the matzah, and the sandwiches) there was a lot of yummy stuff. There was gefilte fish, matzo ball soup (of course), brisket roasted with potatoes and carrots, and a cake with what seemed like lemon curd and seasoned strawberries. The ritual part was done via the 30 Minute Seder. I believe we started around 6 and didn't finish completely until about 9:30. Is that typical? Are they usually longer than that? In any case, I love me some brisket and I am still full!
