fried and frittered for chanukah

December 8th, 2015


It’s that time of year, when Jews light candles and give presents and fry foods and generally remind ourselves that, hey, even though we don’t celebrate that *other* big holiday, we still party and overeat for eight days and nights sometime in December. And now it seems even the Chanukah sweater is ubiquitous. I predict Chanukah socks for hanging from the mantelpiece this time next year.

I haven’t had a chance to cook potato pancakes yet, although I did pan fry some frozen Trader Joe’s latkes (shhhh! I was running late after work and had no time to prepare dinner the night before, much like the Israelites escaping Egypt who had insufficient time for their dough to rise, resulting in masochistic crackers that, oh, right, wrong holiday). But the crisper is stocked with parsnips in case I get a chance to make parsnip latkes sometime this week.

Here’s a list of fried food recipes for Chanukah, or any other occasion:

Happy holiday commemorating the defeat of the hellenized Seleucids, who were neither Greek nor Assyrian!

    a problem on my end? I’ll check back later on and see
    if the problem still exists.
