Happy Kung Fu Purim 2016


Kung Fu Purim Mishloach Manot ready to be delivered!


As is our Purim tradition, Zoe selects the theme for our Mishloach Manot (this year’s theme is based on the Kung Fu Panda movie), and I run around like crazy trying to find the necessary components and ingredients. This time around was only slightly different. Zoe really wanted a panda toy to add to the Mishloach Manot for her friends so she did visit 3 different Party City stores with me in search of said item.

And the results …


What’s inside our 2016 Mishloach Manot?


Here is a list of the items:

Ingredients list and Kosher info for our 2016 Mishloach Manot.


I knew the process seemed way too easy this year until … I started making the noodle candy. I’m not a regular candy maker and had no idea it would be as challenging as it was. It took the candy a long time to set, I’m assuming thanks to the humid weather in Dallas last night. I also needed 30 pieces of each candy type, and the first batch did not produce enough. So, back to the store I went for more ingredients.

Now, we of course, have way more candy than we need but the showstopper this year is the Ramen Noodle Candy from I almost skipped it but am so glad I didn’t. That stuff is so delicious and will definitely become a regular in our household. Who knew ramen noodles were so versatile!

Now the real fun begins … delivery with none other than Ginny Weasley from Harry Potter!
