Tonight we have our traditional Hanukkah celebration. Our daughter has invited a friend and we are all feeling festive. John takes his deep-frying rig out to the patio so our kitchen is not a grease bomb and we are ready for the fried potato feast! The latkes are everything you want in a latke, they are crisp yet soft on the inside. I make a big salad with bacon as the crispy element and we have a loaf of French bread because bread, duh. We have spiced cookies for dessert and it is all good.
