It’s Purim, and there is much to be done around the house. Sarika offers to help her mom with all the tasks to get the house ready for the holiday, especially those that involve putting out orejas de Aman (hamantaschen), folares (pastry with hard-boiled egg wrapped inside), panes (loaves of bread), and keke de chikolata (chocolate cake). While getting a taste for what it’s like being a nikochera (good housewife), Sarika deals with a crying baby, pesky cousins, a friend in need, and others who keep her from her work.
