Note to self: Either start bakin' or stop, er, kvetchin' :(

Sure, I could buy gluten-free hamantaschen online.  But first, I'd have to "pick my poison," pretty much literally--either artificial ingredients or hydrogenated oil.  Then I'd have to pay the mind-boggling shipping cost:  $7.99 for $5.99 worth of hamantaschen???!!!  Looks like the hamantaschen that I ate last Purim, just a few months before realizing that I'd become gluten-intolerant, may have been my last ever.  Sigh--another holiday treat bites the dust, along with honey cake, kreplach, matzah balls, matzah brei, blintzes . . .  (:  But I have good news, too--since I usually go food shopping at Fairway, Seasons kosher supermarket, and/or Kosher Marketplace on the Upper West Side of Manhattan at least once a week, at least I'll be able to treat myself to kosher and vegan pumpkin cheesecake for Shavuot without paying a shipping fee.  :)
