We had the in-laws over for a wonderful (and very fast-paced, due to the Haggadot being in English and the presence of small cousins -- who were however really into Elijah and the afikomen) Seder.
As you can see, we ran out of kippot, so I was forced to lead the seder in a Country-Western accent. Yee-hah!
Although you can see the storebought matzah on the table, we actually also made our own matzah, which was incredibly delicious.
Preheat oven to 250°C
1kg light spelt flour
4 tsp salt
optionally some flax seeds
enough water so that the flour turns into a non-sticky but pliable ball
Mixing small batches of flour and water at a time, roll dough onto baking paper as thin as possible, then put into oven on a metal tray until brown around the edges, something like 5-10 minutes. Take out and balance somewhere around your seder-preparation-disaster-area-kitchen to cool.
If you manage under 18 minutes from mixing in the water until balancing it on the top of a dirty pot or dish-drying rack, it's even kosher!

Were there pictures? You say "as you can see..." but I see nothing.
Yeah, how come you can't see anything? The image is just above that line!
No, it's not! Thanks to Lise, I got to see it, but there is NO link in the blog.
Works on all my computers, and Lise presumably got it from the blog. Perhaps you have some kind of suspect-image-blocking software on?
Hands up, how many people see a picture of me in a cowboy hat on this entry?
I don't get any picture either. Maybe it doesn't work in Firefox.
You are totally right! It didn't work in Firefox. Looks like Chrome and IE both accept backslashes in URL paths, but not Firefox. Ha!
