Countdown to Passover Tip #10: Clean Up Time!

Publish date:

Now's the time to really clean house and stop shopping for non-Passover foods.

We're in double digits as we count down to a perfectly organized Passover with Professional Organizer Rivka Slatkin. Yesterday's tip was to make all your pre-Passover appointments for things like dry cleaning and repairs. Today's tip—Number 10!— is about, guess what, more cleaning.

Tip #10: Clean the dining room breakfront, the fridge and the freezer, designating one non-Passover food area. Stop shopping for chametz. Now clean other areas of the house like laundry rooms, offices, hallways, bathrooms and tape areas up to keep them chametz free. Many of these are low-traffic areas with little chametz contact, so deep cleaning may not be necessary.

Okay, here's my recipe. I love the sweet-savory flavor of baked onions, so when my friend, Malki, told me about an easy-peasey chicken recipe using onion soup mix, I began to tinker. It paid off, because this recipe is a quick and terrific family-friendly supper favorite.
