PASSOVER, AMA RACES, RECIPES

Spring comes and so does Passover.. and the SUPER BIKE CLASSIC from Friday through Sunday BARBERS MOTORSPORTS PARK

SO lets go with Passover ~ here are some recipes that are more on the healthy side...
I feel fairly confident with this holiday.. we go to my aunt's Saturday night.. and I will pick what I really want and enjoy that.. leaving off the other stuff.. we usually end up having the actual dinner so late .. that I often do not eat hardly anything because I dont like eating late... so I am okay with that.

It is also race weekend.. we have guests coming in town too.. for the races.. I am not too worried about that either.. eating won't be that hard ..
I went to Publix to try and pick up some Matzah .. apparently the Publix close to where I work has decided that having at least a end cap with Passover products is no longer necessary. I understand Demographics.. but they even have at least a couple Jewish employees and to have only what is in the Kosher section which is tiny is really horrible.. they used to have a nice Passover display.. but things change I guess... I talked to the store manager this morning and expressed my dissapointment. There are jewish people in this area.. and with the price of gas, to have to drive 15 miles or so to get to another Publix, which carries a HUGE display of Passover products because the Jewish community there is large, is really not right. All I am asking for is an END CAP display... nothing major.. and for heavens sake HAVE MATZAH.. they did not even have that. You see here is what gets me .. 2 or so years ago.. I was getting my Passover products.. I came through the line.. and much to my chagrin.. was confronted by a bag boy who apparently was raised by rather bigoted people. He looked at the boxes of Matzah and started sounding it out .. then he asked me what is that for, when I told him.. he said oh are you a JEW.. You dont look like a Jew.. you know.. u dont have the nose.. I was so perplexed I just stared at him.. when I should have smacked him upside the head with a box of Matzah. I went to my car and was so distraught that I went back in and talked with the store manager.. it irked me too how the cashier a guy about my age just stood there laughing.. instead of correcting the situation.. it really bothered me.. so needless to day .. going to today and not finding anything once again had me thinking of that situation. In this case a store not taking care of its customers.. I shop there sometimes 3 times a week and I let that be known.. I left a message for the regional manager and am going to email Publix as well.

Good for you! What is wrong with people that they think that being Jewish means you have dark hair, have a big nose and wear a yarmulke...I have had people say to me that I couldn't be Jewish because I have blonde hair and blue eyes. people can be so dumb!
Have a wonderful Passover!

WOW! I'm just so shocked that the man in Publix and his comments. I'm glad you talked to the manager, they need to have better training for their employees.

Happy Passover Honi.
