My Passover shopping is done, insofar as it is possible. Refrigerated goods have not yet been delivered to Coles Manuka, nor has chocolate, nor has wine, nor has meat. I can use grapejuice instead of wine and I have already sorted alternates for cheese. I've decided to rejoice in multiculturalism and have halal meat, which I can pick up in Mawson on Wednesday.

All I need is to source kosher for Passover edelbitter, which is one of the joys in my Jewish year and which I don't want to miss. Chocolate covered matzah was always a bit of a dream - I don't need it and only 3/4 want it, but I totally adore kosher for Passover dark chocolate and don't want to do without. If I could get some of that chocolate and a bottle of the sweet concord wine for the seder and for charoset, then I'd be quite fine. Even without them, though, Passover is doable.

I do find it strange that I can get kosher for Passover potato chips and that the matzah was on sale, but that I can't get wine. Still, I have most essentials. And chestnuts. For chestnuts came into season early and I bought some to console myself for the totally strange Passover selection.

I should put my shopping away and do something about lunch. Should. Ought to. Which requires moving.
