Happy Hanukkah!!

The festival of lights starts tonight!! I hope that all my Jewish readers have a great holiday. :)

I just ask one thing.....that you pass on the Manischewitz and buy better wine.
I love potato latkes with applesauce and sour cream. YUM (potato pancakes for those who don't know)

Here is a classic recipe for those delicious morsels of potato love: (from NY daily news)

Recipe: Classic Potato Latkes


Serves 4 to 6 4 large potatoes ½ onion 2 eggs 1 teaspoon salt 4 tablespoons self-rising flour Vegetable oil for frying


Line a large tray with paper towels. Peel the potatoes and grate them either by hand or with a food processor. Set aside in a sieve to drain for 10 or 15 minutes. Meanwhile, peel and chop the onion. In a small bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Place the drained potato in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the chopped onion, lightly beaten eggs, salt and flour. Stir very well. Pour enough vegetable oil into a heavy frying pan to reach a depth of ½ inch and heat over medium heat. When the oil is hot, scoop tablespoonsful of the potato mixture into the pan and cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, flattening the latkes slightly with the back of a spoon. Turn and cook on the other side until golden brown. Transfer the latkes to the paper towel-lined tray to drain. Serve with sour cream and applesauce.
