Maybe it’s all the hype over the anniversary of the Beatles arrival in America. But suddenly I’m nostalgic over an era I never even lived through! I love the music, the handmade clothes, the beads and the spirit. And this year, we’re going back to the garden!
My daughter will make me a rainbow loom hippie head band and we will put together mishloach manot in tie dye bags with Ambrosia Hamantashen. For these hamantashen I added dried coconut to the dough and made a filling of Homemade Marshmallow Fluff mixed with Orange Marmalade and topped with a half of a maraschino cherry. We will add some homemade granola and fresh fruit and send it with peace, love and happiness.
For the Seudah, we will serve a classic 60's dish that just happens to be the perfect “hidden” food, Beef Wellington. I made this version in individual portions using a homemade vegan pate, you can prep ahead to make it easier on Purim Day.
Serve alongside an all-time vintage favorite, Green Beans Almondine. Keep the green beans crisp, by cooking them just a little -- until they are bright green.
Don't miss the Lava Lamp. A symbol of the psychadelic era turned into our beverage of choice for this 60's party. Make it with or without alcohol so everyone can enjoy.
