פורים שמח!

Happy Purim!  Purim is a Jewish holiday that commemorates a time when the Jews of Persia were saved from a plot to exterminate them.  The story is described in the Book of Esther which is read on the holiday.  It is a celebration filled with food, merriment, costumes, and the sending out of gifts.  My Sweet Eddie and I had our own little Purim celebration. We ate lots of cookies, as we do.

Our beautiful Queen to the Persian King, Esther informed him of the plot against the Jews and persuaded him to spare them.

Noisemakers are used to drawn out the name of the villain Haman (Boo!)

Triangular filled cookies are a traditional part of the celebration.
We made some filled with lemon curd and chocolate.

What is a party without a clown juggling cookies. I think he is cute while Eddie says creepy. :-/


And what do you do when your super hot husband realizes he is a master Challah bread baker? 
You have him make you some every week and you take lots of photos. :)
Bread by Ed is amazing!

Happy Purim!
