Some of us have been eating matzo for the past month.
Frankly, the more some of us eat it, the better it seems to us.
With cream cheese or a bit of butter, several scrambled eggs and a glass of orange juice – well – matzo can be very satisfying.
Many Jews create all kinds of matzo treats.
For those of us who are traditionalists – there is only matzo and cream cheese (or Katz’s Bagel’s chive cheese) or matzo and butter. Matzo with chocolate is a stretch, but so many love it. Matzo cooked with eggs is considered a delight.
But when you boil it all down about matzo… it is a bit like eating sawdust by itself.
The modern dressing up of matzo gives it a bit more panache.
It is a nice respite from bread which fattens you up if you eat enough of it.
