Tonight is the first night of Chanukah, the Jewish Festival of Lights. I'm lighting candles and placing the Menorah in my window, as is traditional.
Here’s some more info about this holiday from About.com.
And here’s a lovely Latke recipe (untried by me, yet) from the New York Times: Apple-Potato Latkes with Cinnamon Sour Cream. (I’m planning on substituting wheat flour with an all-purpose gluten-free allergen-free flour blend like King Arthur's.) Here's one without any wheat flour, also from the New York Times: Red Flannel Potato Latkes.
