Wow! First of all, anyone who read my blog in October, 2011: Thanks so much for your comments! When I wrote I did not expect anyone to read it so what a surprise when I opened it up today to find your comments!
I will gladly share the latke recipe which I kind of make up each time I make them.
You really just shred a bunch of different vegetables that you like (zucchini, onions, carrots, potatoes, parsnips, almost anything) then add enough eggs (beaten slightly is best) to hold things together when you cook. Season with salt and pepper, add
hot pepper flakes if you like as well as a little crushed garlic. Scoop up in large spoon and put into medium hot pan that you've put some oil in and fry a few minutes on each side until golden. Serve with sour cream and apple sauce. You can serve these
for breakfast or dinner.
I'm getting my recipes ready for Christmas Eve Dinner which is when I have my family over. This year it appears we will have about 12 at the table including my now 3-year old Grandson, love of my life. I'm having the traditional turkey but adding some chicken
because my darling daughter, budding actress from San Francisco does not eat turkey!! Also using the cranberry relish from Allrecipes as well as corn pudding (Grandma's I think) cole slaw, the usual stuffing and mashed potatoes and gravy. Also a broccoli
cheese casserole to entice another part of the family to eat some vegetables! :) Pumpkin pie from Costco (blush!) because it's so good and cake and cookies made by my 91 year old Mother who is staying with us for the holiday and, I hope, after.
If you take the time to read this, thank you and have a Wonderful Holiday whichever one you celebrate. For us, it's Chrismas and I wish all of you a Very Merry Christmas!
