My daughter is a freakin' Chanukkah genius!

Many of you may know that a traditional treat on Chanukkah is Sufganiyot, which are basically jelly donuts. This being Chanukkah, I wanted my jelly donut! But alas! None were to be found without driving down to Brookline or somewhere. What to do? I knew not. Enter the genius of Meret! We did get some regular donuts from the store. We got some jelly. Meret’s plan then went into effect. How to get jelly into a regular donut? Simple! Suck it up in a straw, and then blow it into the awaiting donut. It the greatest leap forward in donut technology since sprinkles! Meret is a total genius. She requests aid in patenting this procedure.

The artiste creating a handblown donut:

And the finished product: L'Chaim!

EDIT: I have been corrected! Meret didn't actually suck the jelly into the straw, but just sort of jammed it down until it filled the straw up. My mistake!

We opened the package last night! Thanks SO much! It is just the thing that is our goal to get a lot of this year; non-battery involving family activity games. That is the theme. So yours fit right in!!!

I think that yours might not get there for the 25th. I forgot about that date, I was in 8-days mode. Sorry.

We just played the pickle game... we love it! Meret kicked our butts.

With a nice stiff plastic soda straw, try sucking up jello. You can only get a little bit at a time. If it is the right firmness, it makes an incredible noise going up the straw.

As soon as I figure out how to get the fruit to float in there.
Release the Kraken!

I am so proud.

I think traditionally the jelly is actually injected with a syringe after the donut is fried, so she's not too far off from the original!

It was really fun and inventive.
Syringe? Bah! Hers are HAND-INJECTED!

Or mouth-injected, as it were. ;)
