Hanukkah starts tomorrow night! 8 days of being commanded to eat fried foods! You can’t have Hanukkah and NOT have latkes or donuts! It’s like having Thanksgiving without stuffing (the horror!)
But the thing about latkes? They take sooo long to make only to be eaten up in minutes!
The other thing about latkes? Because of fact number one above, a lot of people go with the store bought latkes and those contain flour and sometimes other unnecessary ingredients. Which leaves me latke less and sad at Hanukkah parties! (Plus lets be real the store bought ones don’t usually taste that great…)
