Please don’t tell me I spelled this wrong. There are so many ways to spell Hanukkah, I couldn’t list them all without running out of letters.
I’m not Jewish, but who can resist a holiday that’s all about light and joy and fried food? Even poor little Anne Frank and her hidden family had a Hanukkah party.
We had potato latkes for breakfast.
- shredded potatoes (put on paper towel and press as much moisture out as you can)
- pinch of baking powder
- bit of flour
- bit of matzoh meal or bread crumbs
- oil for cooking
Mix well. Should stick together when squished. Make into little cakes and ease into hot oil (the cakes, not you). If you’ve pressed the moisture out LIKE I TOLD YOU TO, they should brown up. Turn them OVER when they’re done on one side! Geez, do I have to tell you EVERYTHING?
Have a good one!
WRITING PROMPT: Have a character celebrate a holiday you don’t celebrate in your culture or family.
