Latkes and Gift Ideas

DO NOT SHOW THIS TO MY HUSBAND. He did not receive all of his gifts yet. My husband is the hardest person to buy gift for. Clothes and ties aren't special for him, although I did cave and buy him some work out shorts because he would never buy them himself, he doesn't read, and he is not into video games or any techy gadgets. So this is a list I complied in hopes of delighting him.

My reminder to light the menorah: 

Thanks Conan!

Latke Recipe:

5 potatoes
4 eggs
1 onion
1/3 c. flower
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
LOTS of oil

Simple simple steps to make yummy latkes!

1. Peel and grate potatoes. Once you finish grating them make sure to squeeze out the liquid to get a   tastier latke.
2. Grate onion and mix with grated potatoes and the remaining ingredients except for the oil.
3. Heat a pan (I used two pans to make them faster) and add oil until the bottom of the pan is covered with a thick layer.
4. Form flat pancakes with the mixture and carefully add to the hot oil. Like pancakes the latkes do not need a lot of time on each side so flip only after a couple of minutes. I also added oil to the pan whenever I noticed the layer getting thin.

Just like that you are finito banito baby! Feel free to garnish with apple sauce or sour cream!

Fry baby fry!

  1. Adding an extra onion adds extra flavor; those look soo good, almost like the ones I made! Moussia, you are a real balabusta!!
