To take a lyric from my son's Hanukkah song
"I had a little latke, I made it out of clay"
"And when I tried to eat it, my tummy says Oy Vey!"
How many latkes have I had? - Let me count the parties.
Location: Andrew's Preschool Hanukkah Party - I made latkes for the class and it cost me $350 the next day which I had to pay the plumber after I put the potato scraps down the garbage disposal. Next time, I'll buy the mix.
Location: Hanukkah Brunch with my in-laws - Delicious, Weight Watcher recipe latkes - but still ate too many.
Location: Hanukkah Party with my Chavurah - Latkes everywhere - and latke-leftovers galore! Great party with great friends. Each family lit a menorah and we all did the blessings together. Definitely a holiday highlight.
Location: Hanukkah Dinner with my parents - I asked my mom what we were having - guess what - more latkes! Apparently, my dad didn't get to eat any during the 8 days of Hanukkah. Oh well, what's one or two more latkes, right?! Who says I'm not a trooper...
I think I'll take potatoes off the shopping list for a while.
Happy New Year to all!
