I Surprised My Family

We weren't home during Chanukah so tonight was the traditional dinner that we missed. I usually hate cooking but decided to go all out today, my last night before school starts again.

The salad

The turkey (for my carnivores)

The meatballs (for my carnivores)

The potato latkas

The two hungry men in my family and my son's friend.

And of course Rita. She is never far away when there is food on the table.

A latka is a pancake.

These are made from grated potato, onion, eggs, breadcrumbs, garlic, salt and pepper. They are fried golden brown and are a traditional food of Chanukah.
