Attended our high school triplet's Hanukkah Choir Recital today. Tonight, I made more homemade traditional Potato Latkes by hand grating potatoes and chopping some onions and fresh garlic, then adding a small amount of flour and salt and pepper to taste. Fried in hot olive oil till golden brown and served with applesauce and sour cream, everyone loved these and they're already asking me to make more for the rest of the holiday. It's the second night of Chanukah now and the candles on the menorah are now 50 percent brighter. That's what I like about this celebration, daily for eight nights and days the beauty of the candles only intensifies.
New post each night of Hanukkah!
