BONUS RECIPE (Sorry; not particularly theme-related):
  From Me ('65) of NC - 12/02/18 - "Pristine White Muffins":

   This is my favorite quick bread recipe; I've been enjoying it since 1966.
 

Pristine White Muffins
 

3 cups self-rising flour
8 Tbsp. sugar
8 Tbsp. white shortening
1-1/2 cups cold water

   Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix together flour and sugar. Cut in shortening with a pastry cutter. Then mix by hands until crumbly. Slowly add the water while mixing to form a soft dough. Drop pieces of this wet dough into ungreased muffin tins. Bake 15 minutes until they start to turn tan.

   Somehow, these taste even better at room temperature, so make them ahead if you are able. able.                              


FINALLY:

From http://www.jewishjokes.net/category/21/0/0/Jewish-Mother - Jewish Jokes
 

Bloomingdales

An elderly woman from Brooklyn decided to prepare her will and make her final requests. She told her rabbi she had two final requests.
First, she wanted to be cremated, and second, she wanted her ashes scattered over Bloomingdales.

"Bloomingdales?" the rabbi exclaimed. "Why Bloomingdales?"

"Then I'll be sure my daughters visit me twice a week."
