      •  You're citing Woody Allen as a positive? (0+ / 0-)

        He may be a nice person, but his movies are downers.

        •  I decided to leave woody alone--he really seems (0+ / 0-)

          to be a matter of taste.   Like gefilte fish.   On the other hand, matzos--what's not to like?

            I'm not Jewish. but I bought a pack of Kosher-for-Passover matzo to see what they tasted like.  They taste like you would expect "the bread of affliction" to taste.

            Of course, in my case they are not seasoned with decades worth of family meals in a tradition that goes back well over two millennia.  And I have not tried them smashed into crumbs, mixed with egg and chicken fat, rolled into balls, then floated in chicken soup that tastes exactly like what my mother and grandmother used to make.

              If so, try them with butter or margarine, whipped cream cheese, cheese, jelly, jam or marmalade, or even Nutella. Or pate, which is fancy chopped liver. They can be quite good if paired with a suitable spread or topping. Think of them as large unflavored water crackers, which is what they basically are. You have Carr's, we have Streit's.

              They also make a decent bread crumb for cutlets, and I imagine meatloaf or meatballs. Very versatile.

              If all else fails, there's always pigeons.

          He appears to be a real jerk, but his movies are generally happy.
