Earlier this week I made some raspberry crackers. This led Jan to thinking about: What other unexpected things you could you add to crackers? Her answer was the spice blend za’atar. She asked me to make these crackers for Sunday’s dinner.

Jan suggested Israeli couscous as the starch dish to go with my Easter lamb. Ptitim, or “Ben-Gurion rice,” has only a nodding acquaintance with the fine grained couscous of the rest of the Middle East. It was created in the early years of the nation of Israel as a rice substitute.
