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 …

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 PinkCakePlate.com. 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!

  1. I so love how you have adapted this tradition. We have become kosher a few years ago and I always desire to and learn about the wonderful appointed times. However because I was not raised with these traditions, I am not usually sure how to implement and encourage my family to be as motivated and interested in old traditions as myself. I love the historical learning and sense of reverence it gives me towards God, but I’d love to adapt and even modernize some of these for my family so they might also look forward to these holidays. We live very far away from any resources of angling so Internet and books are my only guide. I do hope someday to find a mentor to help us to learn these. As our family is the only one I know who is attempting to be more Torah observant. Thank you for your blog. I’ve watched it for sometime and it is helpful is learning.

  2. Thank you so much for your lovely comment. I too feel like I’m constantly learning and growing. I’m fortunate to live in a city with several great observant communities and have just started taking a new class recently. As I progress in the class, I’ll share some of my learnings … along with my favorite Kosher treif food ideas : )
