Haveil Havalim: The Lots And Lotsa Matzah Edition

Brush the crumbs off your beard and brace your aching tummy- it's time for Haveil Havalim again!!!
Started by Soccer Dad and administered by Jack, HH is a weekly roundup of the best posts of the Jewish Blogosphere.
Probably due to the holiday, I received very few submissions this week for HH, so I conducted my own Bedikat Hablogs and selected some additional posts that I thought you might enjoy.

So How's Your Pesach Going?
Baila is enjoying her vacation.
G6 is battling the matzah crumbs at Guess Who's Coming To Dinner.
All of Elliot Jaffe's children managed to stay awake throughout the seder at Weekend Hospitality.
Seraphic Secret shows us what happens when Karen Koshers Keilim.
Frum Satire presents Rules for NYers Visiting Miami for Pesach, Passover Price Gouging, and My First days of Pesach Were Awesome.
Hadassah's son held her hand and melted her heart.
RivkA tells us about her family's vacation in Eilat over at Coffee and Chemo.
Batya at Shiloh Musings attended the Passover Festival at Tel Shiloh (with pictures!)
The Rebbetzin's Husband visited Central Park.
Shosh won A Prestigious Award right before Pesach at Day By Glorious Day.
The Subjugated Wife directs her outrage at certain smug patronizing men in My Annual Passover Rant (you tell 'em!)
And Our Shiputzim discusses the annual problem of conflicting haggadahs.

Pesach- It's What's For Dinner
Esser Agaroth offers us a Qitniyoth Wrap-Up.
According to Rafi G., Israeli Arabs love to eat matzah with chocolate sauce.
The beautiful women of the J-Blogosphere present some delicious kosher-for-pesach recipes: radish salad from Leora, eggplant caponata from Ilana Davita, swiss chard rollups from Israeli Kitchen, mina de maza from Baronness Tapuzina, and chocolate biscotti, matzoh balls in Persian fruit soup, cranberry charoset, and mushroom croquettes all from Cafe Liz.
A Blob Of Something Different reminds us that Pesach is really all about freedom in Let's Free Ourselves.

Nu, So What's Been Happening In Israel?
A televised debate between Hamas and Fatah leads The Israel Situation to discuss their tendency to Blame It On The Occupation. Eric also notes a bit of irony in The White House Seder.
It's a Passover miracle! (heavy sarcasm) A Palestinian teenager that was reportedly killed by the IDF is alive and well and back home with his family in Gaza. See The Muqata for all of the ridiculous details.
Soccer Dad discusses The Twisted Logic Of The Peace Process.
Oleh Girl discloses that Amnesty International Partners Up With Terrorists And Jihad.
On a more personal note, A Soldier's Mother shows us how much the Israeli Army cares for its soldiers and for their families in Are You Chaim's Mother?
and Treppenwitz shares the appalling story of his lost cell phone.

Other Good Stuff (or: it's getting late and I'm tired so I need to finish this up)
Material Maidel asks a question that made me laugh out loud.
Jack reminisces about hanging out with the friends of his youth.
Wolfish Musings discusses How To End Some Torah/Science Disputes and shows us a beautiful shot of the Hudson River at sunset.
And for the mathematically challenged among us, Ima On And Off The Bima provides an "omer counter" to help us get through the next seven weeks.

That's all, folks. Submit your fave article or blog post to next week's edition of HH by using the carnival submission form. To volunteer to host a future edition of HH, contact Jack.
