I love Purim and everything about it. I love the groggers and the shalach manos and the coming together of the community. And I love letting the people you love know you love them. I love that tzedeka is a big part of the day, and I love that we won over the evil Haman! I love the unlikely heroes, Mordechai and Esther, because of their devotion to the Jewish people, and I love how good triumphed over evil. I love getting dressed up, I love sewing my kids costumes, and I love making the food. I love reconnecting with people I haven’t seen since last Purim. I love hamentaschen, and I love theme parties.
And all of this love culminates in a very fun Purim seuda! This year, I’ve decided to do an easy and delicious meal with a Mexican theme. The food lends itself to buffet style – everyone can make their own tacos! – or if they are low-carb, they can make “naked” tacos (all of the fillings and none of the tortilla)!
