We are Jewish and celebrate all the holidays, including Chanukah. It starts on Saturday night and goes for 8 nights. We light a candle each night on our menorah, adding one each night. When the kids were little, we'd give them a small gift each night. We belong to a synagogue nearby and they are having a Chanukah party. I volunteered to make rice pilaf for maybe 50... I couldn't believe how much rice I had to buy!!
I will report back on Saturday with more details about our holiday. One of my favorite foods for the holiday is a potato latke (potato pancake) with homemade applesauce. Y U M M Y !!
I'm heading up to Sunriver on Sunday for a small retreat with my dear friends Claire and Lori, kind of a pre-Christmas sewing fest! So you'll be hearing from us up there, probably snow blowing!! Have a great weekend!
Rice for 50?! That's a lotta rice!!!ReplyDelete
Wow! I want your recipe--do you share? Our family holiday party usually involves around 50 people and I'm always looking for crowd pleasers.ReplyDelete
You three have fun sewing. Be looking forward to your report of all the good times.
I hope you enjoy your holiday. We were very fortunate to get to share many Jewish celebrations with our old friends back in Massachusetts. My favorite dish was the Kugel! Yum! Couldn't get enough of it! :o)ReplyDelete
That's a lot of rice! You girls have fun sewing - sounds like a blast!ReplyDelete
Have fun with Lori & Claire. I met Lori once - she lives near my BIL. Hope to see her again next time we are in OR. Happy Chanukah!ReplyDelete
Rice for 50!?? Looks like there have been lots of comments on that! I bet it smelled wonderful! Hope your drive up to SR goes safe....I'll miss you girls!ReplyDelete
Ohh, I love potato pancakes - do you have a good recipe you would share?ReplyDelete
Have fun sewing - it's so beautiful at Sunriver this time of year.
That's strange. Over in Australia Hannukah starts on Tuesday 20th December this year. How could the dates be so different?ReplyDelete
Chanukah does start on Tuesday the 20th. I was over-anxious for latkes!ReplyDelete
Happy Chanukah! Now I want some latkes and applesauce. Yummy.ReplyDelete
