Fill up tonight – tomorrow is the fast of Ester!

Thursday is the fast of Ester! Normally it’s right before Purim, but when Purim is immediately after Shabbat, we push the fast back. This can make the Halachot a little different if you have shailot, just as a note!

So tonight’s dinner should be pre-fast – here are some ideas. We had soup, french toast casserole for the kids (leftover challah!), and fruit.

The kids and I made samoa hamantashen and lemon and orange hamentashen today, too. And we’re working on some Passover countdown projects and other Passover projects.

Purim is Saturday night to Sunday!
