Hubby and I are venturing down to DC today – and are lucky to spend some time with good friends (who happen to enjoy whirling Purim groggers as much as I do). As I ride the train down the NE Amtrak corridor, I’m reminded just how much I love the east coast and its cities. It’s a gorgeous foggy day and no matter which town and city we go through, the density is awesomely beautiful.  I’m eagerly awaiting the New York skyline and the Philadelphia rowhouses.

Although they were born of circumstance, they are a delightful addition to my Purim celebrations.  I wouldn’t dare suggest giving up on traditional Hamantaschen, but these scones are certainly worth trying. (Have I mentioned that I love scones before?) Perhaps there are some apricot Hamantaschen scones in my future…
