A Green Purim
Purim and St. Patrick’s Day occur within a few days of each other this year. A green Purim is a happy combination of the two traditions!
In a green basket, with green salad tongs, we put toppers perfect for a green salad: a jar of green olives, “Bacon” Bits, salad dressing with a container to put in a lunch box, a small can of tuna, a jar of basil and a box of raisins. For future gardens, we placed a packet of (green!) parsley.
For fun, we placed a jar of jellybeans, bubbles and a bubble maker and a fun drink container with a plastic straw that goes around the middle!
And all that’s left to put in the basket are a few hamantaschen—this year a triple chocolate recipe from The Nosher that will hit the sweet spot of any chocoholic! A word search and poem are the final additions.
A Happy and Green Purim and St. Patrick's Day!
