What the Israelites actually took when they was leaving Egypt

Exodus 12:35-36
35 The Israelites did as Moses instructed and asked the Egyptians for articles of silver and gold and for clothing. 36 The LORD had made the Egyptians favorably disposed toward the people, and they gave them what they asked for; so they plundered the Egyptians.

What the scripture doesn’t tell us is that the Israelites also asked the Egyptians for food processors, electric mixers, dishwashers, and all their egg-laying chickens.  Without this Egyptian plunder the Israelite ladies would not be able to prepare their Seder meal in the years to come.

The chickens are especially crucial.  I already have about 25 Passover bagels and one Passover chocolate-apple torte in the freezer.  That’s about 18 eggs right there. 

Passover Tools:

Wine bottle for cooling sponge cake

Electric mixer for whipping egg whites

Food processor for grating just about every ingredient

The manual version, when the food processor is not available

Please excuse the post title.  I'm reading the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

The wine bottle appears to be wearing a lampshade.
