Migas Matzah Brei

Last night of Passover for Jews in Israel and for Reform Jews. Great night for making Matzah Brei. We just were in Texas, so I thought I'd make an homage: Migas Matzah Brei.

So, first I sauteed in butter some chopped tomato, chopped bell pepper, chopped onion, and chopped jalapeno. When they had browned/softened a little I mixed them up together.

I beat a couple of eggs in a bowl, and salted & peppered them. Into that, I mixed a couple broken-up matzahs, softened in hot water, which was mostly squeezed out. I poured the mixture over the sauteed vegetables in the pan. I spread the egg mix over the veggies, and ran the pan under the r for a couple of minutes to dry out the top.

After the pan was taken out from the broiler, I flipped the mix over like a pancake, shredded cheese over the top, and ran it under the broiler for a couple of minutes to melt and brown the cheese. I sprinkled over the top the browned bits from the bottom of the pan.

It made a pretty tasty Hebraio-TexMex meal for my last night of Passover.

National Cathedral Bell Tower

On April 3, 2011, the Washington Post Style Invitational Losers met for brunch at Cafe Deluxe on Wisconsin Ave. in DC. Ann Martin, Loser from the UK, arranged for us also to tour the National Cathedral Bell Tower and see the change ringers at work. Here's a link to my photo album.
