PESACH CAME A LITTLE EARLY THIS YEAR.... MIAMI FRIENDSHIP AND CONTENTMENT
When I left the Old Lisbon Restaurant in Coral Way in Miami today, I felt such a contentment. I was with my good friends M and W and their good friends M and S. First of all, the food at the restaurant was extraordinarily good. My good friend M, a reliable foodie, had recommended
Caldeirada de Peixes e Mariscos
Seafood combination of Clams, Mussels, Shrimp, Squid and Fish Stew served with Steamed Potatoes
and I was not disappointed and savoured every morsel of it, letting it slip through the gullet on its delicious journey. The wine was a Sauvignon Blanc from Chile.
Better yet was the company, we are old friends having known each other from our medical student days.
Conversation turned to Pesach and Seder. I had spent my last seder with M and W at their home but they would be at sea on a cruise this time. M and S have a busy schedule so that they are afraid they might not be able to prepare a proper seder in time..and I might be on a flight to Buenos Aires (no shortage of Seder there!) to meet a good Cuban friend of mine!
So I thought to my self: I will consider this to be my seder for this year..In the last few years I have celebrated seder at Miami, Brussels or Paris...
and it was nice to think of some good people I had spent seder with and say a silent kaddish for them:
Cecil H London, Joel and Irena G Miami and Ian B Corpus Christi.
While our dinner was in no way justifiable as Jewish, it was delicious and I highly recommend it
