  1. I’m actually doing an italian themed Purim seudah this year, Brushetta and antipasti ( without the cheese of course) for starter, sausage & peppers, and chicken marsala for main ( meatballs and speghetti for the kids) and canoli for desert.( making it with parave ice cream inside instead of cheese)
