Santa may still be making his list and checking it twice but Channukah is already here!
My new stove arrived late yesterday afternoon, just in time to fry up some holiday potato latkes (pancakes.) They are traditionally served with apple sauce, sour cream or both!
3 cups of shredded potatoes (about 3 large potatoes)
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
About 3 Tablespoon flour
Oil for frying
Mix everything together, except the flour and oil.
Pour about 1/4-1/2-inch of oil in a large skillet and heat until hot. Quickly mix flour into potato mixture, then use a large serving spoon to drop mixture into hot oil. Flatten slightly with a spatula. Fry until brown and crispy, then turn and cook other side. Drain on paper toweling. Serve at once or keep warm in a 200 degree. Can be refrigerated and reheated in 400 degree oven. Serve with apple sauce, sour cream or both!
Before I jump on my elliptical walker to work off last nights latkes, I thought I'd share a photo from The Inspired Room blog.
I know it’s only December 5th but I've already heard a lot of whining about Christmas burnout. If you are seeing red over all that red and green, I found a project you might like to try. It’s wintery, fresh and non-denominational.
These gorgeous ice sculptures, designed by Sandra Evertson, are one of the ideas featured by Melissa during her Creative Inspiration Week (www.theinspiredroom.wordpress.com). You’ll find more photos plus instructions that make it easy to create these pretty centerpieces. Just add glitter!
