      Adar 2, 5767, 2/20/2007

      Welcome to Adar - Finally!


      On this week's Eyshet Chayil Show, we discussed the joyous month of Adar, with tips on increasing your happiness in the happiest month of the Jewish year.

      I found a great timeline for Adar on Wikipedia, the ultra-prolific reference site.  Check it out!  Almost every day of Adar has an interesting event which took place during the month - very informative.

      Just for added fun, I'm including a recipe for Hamantaschen from Chabad:

      Tasty Hamataschen

      4 cups flour
      4 eggs
      3/4 cup sugar
      1 cup margarine, softened
      1 Tbsp. Orange juice
      2 tsps. Baking powder
      1 tsp. Vanilla extract
      Pinch of salt
      1 tsp. Orange rind

      FILLINGS
      1 pound strawberry or apricot preserves

      Preheat oven to 350°.

      Grease cookie sheets.

      Place all ingredients in a large mixer bowl and beat together. You may add a drop more juice or flour, depending on consistency of dough. Roll dough into a ball. Divide into four parts.

      Proceed to assemble and bake according to Hamantashen illustrated.

      FUN VARIATION
      Put a drop of food coloring into dough, for colored hamantashen, the kids will love it!
