Matzoh Mania

I had maybe three pieces of matzoh during Passover, including Seder.  I'm just not thrilled with the stuff.  Instead, I made quinoa, potatoes, carrots, or decided to forego starch entirely.

So now that Passover is finished, I'm starting to make my way through the four remaining boxes, 14 pieces per box.  (I managed to give away one box from the 5-pack.)  I'm actually in the mood for it now.  I think it goes back to the first Question: On all other nights we eat either leavened or unleavened bread.  Why, on this night, do we eat only unleavened bread?  It's about choice.  If I have a bagel or other breads during the day, one piece of matzoh isn't a big deal.

Besides, a lot of the things I like to put on matzoh (or any cracker) are not KLP.  PB&J is fantastic on it.  Hummus works great.  Even the tuna salad I make with my vegan mayo (I happen to prefer the taste & texture to egg-based mayo) isn't KLP because the condiment is soy-based.  I did make the chocolate-banana matzo brei a few times, and plan to make it more, but that's just because I like it.
This is not necessarily an endorsement of Yehuda Matzoh.
It's just what was on sale this year.

I'll probably get over this in a few days, when I get tired of having crackers and soup with dip for dinner.  After a week of heavy meals, including five days of leftover lamb, I was ready for something lighter.
