Starting to think about Purim

I’ve been thinking about Purim for months at work. It’s a big project this year and there are so many components that I hadn’t even really thought about what we were doing at home for Purim this. What are my girls going to wear, what are we putting into Mishloach Manot, etc.

So here are some things I have found.

Thanksgiving Challot

For year’s my mother-in-law has made challot in the shape of Turkeys. They are individual roles that are shaped like a turkey and have raisins for eyes. They are absolutely adorable.

In the last year I have seen a lot of Challot designs. Kveller posted today a picture of a Turkey Challah that I posted to my pinterest page last year. I thought it would be a great idea to post some Challot ideas.

Trader Joe’s Chocolate Chips

I was an exclusive user of the Trader Joe’s Chocolate Chips until a few months ago, when their hecksher certification was changed from Pareve to Dairy. Every time I go into Trader Joe’s I ask when it will change back. Last night, while at Trader Joes, I asked again. The answer I got was at this point in time they are not planning on moving back to being pareve. I really do prefer the Trader Joe’s chocolate chips over other pareve chocolate chips. It’s a shame that they won’t be changing back because with dairy chocolate chips I have many other wonderful options and as long as they are dairy I have no plans on purchasing them. Have you found a good alternative? Are you still purchasing Trader Joe’s chocolate chips?
