Here are my responses to Rachel Ann's questions:
Because it is about to be Purim and then Passover....
1. So how many bags of (name your favorite sugary posion) did you eat before making up those Shaloch Manos baskets?
This year--none. (See post above about being away from home on Purim.) Even on normal years the answer is generally none--most families in my town give gifts of good (side dishes for the Purim meal) instead of junk food. No month-long candy fests for us!
2. What is your favorite Purim memory?
Driving around Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Queens with my husband and infant son after having baked 160 challot for Shaloch Manot.
3. Put on your black hat. What is the Passover cleaning job you are now forcing all your evil minnions to do?
The fridge, the oven, and the kids' rooms. Hey, they're teens!
4. Will you please, please, please, come clean my house for Passover? I'll make you a nice dinner. (Sorry, if you are a Jewish mom you know why that pleas got to be in there.)
No way. I'll have less than 20 days to clean my own house, and I've seen yours! I might have a teen for hire, though.
5. What is your favorite Passover meal? And no fair not giving over the recipe.
Meal? I'm supposed to be serving meals on Passover. Oh, shoot, I knew I've been doing something wrong all this time. Seriously, though, can I get back to you about this once I get home to my recipes?
