5 weeks to go: Lists and menus to plan, oh my! (Regular Pesach planning, 2011: March 13-19)

(See more about my Passover planner HERE. Week 6 is the first in the series of lists.)

Plan menus, especially using current inventory:

o   Purim seudah

o   Snacks/meals for the 1-1.5 weeks before Pesach (including lunches)

o   Snacks/meals for the week after Pesach

o   Pesach menu, including snacks for kiddos

Write up a plan of attack for koshering the house and kitchen. Remember to include the 24 hour rest period, and adjust as needed in weekly plan.

Review Shalom Bayit book: any questions, ask shailas, review shaila page.

Shopping lists galore:

o   Pesach kitchen goods (cutting boards, pots, urn, etc.)

o   Clothes for each family member

o   Hostess gifts and kid gifts—books

o   Afikomen gifts

o   Any costumes needed for Pesach play?

o   Wine and/or grape juice (order?)

o   Candles: Two 3-day candles, yahrzeit candles as needed, candles to light (x5 days outside of Israel, x3 in Israel)

o   Matzah (order shmura)

o   Purim needs: costumes, containers, food for MM

o   Judaica: seder plate, afikomen bag, etc.

o   Food, using menus:

  • Far ahead (things to stock up on starting now)
  • 1-1.5 weeks ahead
  • 3 days before (produce and veggies)
