Happy Purim!


Happy Purim Everyone!

This year, our theme is zebras.  I got these funky paper boxes with zebra print from the Dollar Store to match our costumes.  Then I filled them with Sweet and Salty Popcorn and mini Zucchini-Chocolate Chip Muffins.  What were YOUR themes this year?

Recipes Included Below.

Sweet and Salty Popcorn

1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon coarse salt

In a large pot with a tight-fitting lid, heat the oil over medium-high heat. add the popcorn. When the oil sizzles, sprinkle the sugar over the kernels. Cover and shake the pan until the popping slows down, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and toss with the salt.

Zucchini-Chocolate Chip Muffins


3 cups flour

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking powder

3/4 tsp. baking soda

2 medium zucchini

3 eggs

1 cup oil

1 cup chocolate chips

Mix first 6 dry ingredients.  Peel and grate zucchini to measure 2 cups and add to flour mixture.  Blend eggs and oil.  Add to flour mixture.  Stir well until moistened.  Add chocolate chips to batter and pour into paper-lined muffin tins.  Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
