Hamen Tashen

The kitchen is full of them, made by Ruth and Chris while I worked on this rare snowy Texas day. This fruit stuffed pastry is traditional Purim fare, the food of the holiday when we Jews practice not taking ourselves so seriously and also understanding the way life can and does turn itself upside down. This year is so different from last year, but mostly in good ways, but ways I never would have expected.

  1. It would have been fun to see a photo of the pastries...wondering what kinds of fruit they are stuffed with.
