PRESENTS FOR HANUKKAH

I haven’t given my Hubby is Hanukkah present yet, but he’s at work and probably won’t look at this until after he opens the present, so it’s safe to post it now.

 

I hope it will make Hubby smile. Plus I got one for me, because they were on sale if you bought two. I don’t usually like pink, but I decided to buy it anyway.

LATKE RECIPE

As I mentioned, Jews like to eat on holidays. During Hanukkah, it is traditional to eat fried foods, which represent the oil of the Temple that lasted eight days. Go look it up if you don’t know the story. The favorite fried food of Hanukkah is LATKES! I love latkes. They are fried potato pancakes, usually served with applesauce (I don’t know why), and sour cream (yuck). I eat them with ketchup.

Doesn’t that latke look good? It should, because I got it from a Martha Stewart website.

Here is the traditional way Jews make latkes. First, buy a box of latke mix. Manischewitz (pronounced man-ih-sheh-vitz) is preferred. Then follow the instructions on the box, and enjoy!

HAPPY FIRST NIGHT OF HANUKKAH!

It’s the first night of Hanukkah, or Channukah, or Chanukkah, or Hannukah, or however you want to spell it. There are a million ways. Why do we celebrate Hannukah? You can read the full story here, I’m not going to go into it. Let’s just say it’s ANOTHER holiday when the Jews celebrate not being massacred or oppressed, and we eat a lot. So HAPPY HANNUKAH!

HURRAY FOR COFFEE!

I got one of my presents early this year! Appelina and her man JB got me my very own coffee dripper! I’ve already used it three times. It’s very pretty.

 

And do you know what makes a great cup of coffee even better? Peppermint Mocha Kahlua! Hurray!

EVERY DAY SHOULD SUCK LESS

Yes, I know I’m posting this on a Tuesday, but I didn’t see this yesterday and I know Appelina will like it anyway. And people can use a pick me up every day. Plus, the chick in the background looks surprisingly like Appelina.

MY PERSONAL CUP OF COFFEE

I’m at home along a lot and sometimes I want a cup of coffee, but I don’t want to use my french press because it’s annoying to clean and I have to make a full pot of it (32oz) for it to come out well. So I decided I want a “coffee dripper” for Hanukkah. It makes one or two cups, and it’s easy to clean. There are several companies that make it but Hario is nice, simple, and inexpensive. You just fit it on top of your coffee mug, put a filter in the top, fill it with a few spoonfuls of grounds, and poor hot water over it. Perfect!
