I am making the traditional latkes tonight...actually...they're frying as I write. Gotta say...grandma would be disappointed as I didn't hand grate everything like I usually do. I took the shortcut and I shopped everything in the food processor. I did feel bad while doing it but it was more instant gratification. I'll be sorry when I take that first bite though because I'll be able to tell. Sometimes the best way to do things is by hand and this is the case with good latkes. Well, to those who celebrate it...Happy Hanukkah, to those who don't....well, have a latke anyway...just make sure you add applesauce or sour cream...of both if you so choose. :)
UPDATE: I found the Hanukkah candles. YAY! So, I lit em a little late...so be it. I also used my grandfather's menorah for the first time. It felt nice to use it since he can't.
