Passover Seder Invitation and Matzah Brittle

This week my friend and I were invited to a Passover Seder. This week is extraordinary because Passover and Easter fall in the same week. We celebrated the story of Exodus reading from the haggadah in English. About twenty people had been invited.
These are the symbols of the Seder Feast. There is  clockwise: fruit (apples with walnuts and cinnamon), parsley, horseradish (the root, and ground), egg, and lamb.
We ate Matzah, and drank wine.

We had a Christian version of the Jewish Passover Seder. Our meal consisted of turkey, green beans, salad, roasted sweet potatoes, roasted white potatoes, and carrots.

Everyone looked like they had a wonderful time. It was a time of learning and of faith. A time to rejoice in a people and a time to rejoice in each other. A time to rejoice in food.

For dessert there were almond macrons, dates, noodle kugel and matzah brittle which I brought.
The brittle was a hit and the plate was cleaned!
Here it is fresh out of the oven.
I found the original recipe at Dying for Chocolate.
And it all started with a matzah.
