The cookies are baked, the boxes are assembled, the bags of shoko are safely stored in the fridge.
I think…I think this means we’re ready.
It’s weird. After all the planning, all the thinking, all the days of coming up with new ideas and then immediately nixing them — Purim will start in just a few hours, and we’re actually all set.
I can’t even list all the couples costumes + matching themed mishloach manot that we (I) considered. As my husband says, this is my baby. He’s right — although he was happy to brainstorm with me, it’s just me who’s obsessed with this stuff. The good kind of obsessed!
So we’re going to be bakers. Since we’ve already got adorable aprons and oven mitts, the only thing we had to buy was the tissue paper for our hats.
Yes, we are both wearing pink chef’s hats. I was in charge of making the costumes. (Heh heh heh.)
Dressing up as bakers freed me up to focus on the actual baking, which is what I love most, anyway.
We also bought some little bags of chocolate milk. I don’t know about you, but that’s kind of my favorite thing ever.
Chocolate milk clearly tastes best when you drink it from the bag.
Basically, this is my line of reasoning: cookies + milk in bag = happy.
Recipe tease alert! These cookies are the inspiration for a recipe I’ll soon be publishing in Binah (issue no. 279). Stay tuned.
