Happy Hanukkah and Yummy Latkes

Well, I started this post on Thursday night and then somehow this post disappeared.

Anyway. Here I go, round 2.

We made latkes for dinner (and chicken too) and then called Matt’s parents and sister to light the candles together. Even though Heather was in Atlanta and  his Mom and Dad are in Miami it was nice to all speak and do this together.


I briefly touched on making these latkes last year but this year when we made them I took pictures of the steps for you!!

[Printable Recipe]


1 Simply Potatoes package
2 eggs

Grate onion using the smallest side of the grate box. (Forgot a pic of this – DOH!)

Fry until both sides are golden brown


Serve with sour cream (or applesauce)


These were the best yet. Seriously super yummy.


Tonight was the 6th night of Hanukkah.


This was from last night.

Tonight I also put up my pink Christmas tree. :-D



I love getting to celebrate both holidays!

Hope your Holiday season is wonderful!!
