And don’t forget; look at life through rose colored glasses!

And make sure to tovel the pretty dish.
We hope you like the things we sent,
We’re fishing for a compliment

  Vayimalei Haman Cheima:

Everyone bowed down to Haman except Mordechai,
He simply refused, he did not even try.

Cheima also means butter, we prepared some with a roll for you.
Peanut butter, butternut squash and a butterfly you can see,
A Happy Purim to you and your whole family!

What you will need:
Peanut butter, butter, butternut squash muffins, butterfly...

Naddeda Shnat Hamelech:

The King couldn’t sleep, he was twisting all night,
Something he felt was just not quite right,
He asked his servants to bring his memory book,
He opened it up to have a good look.
He found out a story that he did not know why,
He never rewarded this man Mordechai.
Maybe he should have tried to count sheep,
And drink milk and cookies to fall back asleep.

What you will need:
milk, cookies, notebook.

Migadol vead Katan:
Achashveirosh made a party and invited everyone,
It tells us in the megilla- migadol vead katan.
BIG COOKIE, little cookie and the same with the wine,
BIG CHOCOLATE, little chocolate we think it’s divine.
So here is a little something it was not a BIG deal,
Have a wonderful Purim and enjoy your Purim meal!

What you will need:
big chocolate, little chocolate, big petit bars, little petit bars, big wine, little wine.

  4. Once on a Purim Meshulash, we made everything triangular. And the hamentashen were triple-chocolate: chocolate dough, chocolate filling, dipped in chocolate.

  5. These are the cutest ideas I have seen: they are REAL purim themes, heimish, do-able, creative, and simply make me want to smile. It's so refreshing to see these instead of the usual fancy-shmancy-need-a-toolbox-or-a-sewing machine-or a fine arts degree-ideas!!!!! and of course it always helps to be a cordon-bleu chef.....

    yesher koach!
