ECF - Hamantaschen Edition

Last weekend we celebrated Purim. It's yet another Jewish holiday that follows the general outline: they tried to kill us, we won, let's eat. The twist on this one is that it's observed a lot like Halloween. Those who choose to do so (not me) get in costume and we go to hear the Megillah read while the adults get smashed. Really, at our shul they beak out the blender right in the sanctuary. Margarita anyone?


Anyway, the other thing that Purim is known for is Hamantaschen which are 3 cornered cookies filled with whatever you like. The shiny red filling is raspberry, which my girls made for me. For themselves they used chocolate chips and marshmallows. Yum!
Have a great weekend!
