Even though I can be crank about it, I have to admit one of my jobs can be pretty sweet sometimes. My boss has this thing about feeding people. Come into her house and I can guarantee you she will offer you something to eat or drink within 5 minutes of your arrival. My first day at the farm (you know, where they grow food) she stopped by and asked if I had eaten. I try to convince her that's never been a problem with me.
So when things are quiet around the office, food starts to appear. Fortunately, the boss is a pretty good cook. Every year for about the last 10 years during Passover, she's been promising me she'd make me some matzoh brei. The time was finally right.
Ellie's Matzoh Brei for 2
milk (or half and half)
You beat the eggs and milk in a bowl with a wisk. Run warm water over the matzoh until it is soft (but not mushy--some folks soak it). Break it up and mix it in with the egg mixture. Melt the butter in a frying pan and add the mixture. Cook like scrambled eggs or let it "set" and flip it over like an omelet.
Ellie says it's not complete unless you serve it with jam. And she likes to have a green salad.
And use the nice napkins.
We also had a guest.
All in all, nice work if you can get it.
