Chanukah! We haven't had lots of oily food (though I would say it is probably enough), so it's time to pay homage to the miracle of oil that lasted 7 extra days.
Tonight we'll have Latkes!
However, my girls don't like latkes, and my stomach doesn't like latkes (the oil doesn't agree with me)...
So here's our compromise:
Leftover split-pea barley stew from Shabbat
Latkes with sour cream or applesauce
Stuffed Baked Potatoes for those of us with latke-issues
Make-your-own-Salad (we have tomatoes, greenish/yellowish peppers, avocado, carrots, and honey-cinnamon'd oranges - oranges from our tree)
Chanukah Sameyach! Enjoy your latkes!
