Months have passed since my last post and while I have dined at many fun and some new locations, nothing makes me happier then tonight's Hanukkah dinner. Latkes, latkes, latkes....need I say more...oh wait...and brisket. This week has seemed so long in anticipation of those starchy, fried delicacies. In preparation I even dressed appropriately with leggings and a skirt with an elastic waistband. I really can't wait to indulge!

While latkes are delicious on their own, I can't leave this post without speaking of the condiments, sour cream and applesauce. I am not sure who came up with this masterful combination of dairy and fruit, but it works. Years ago when I lived in Holland, I made a little video of how one eats their latke, since the video is gone, I'll walk you through the process.
- First grab perfect latke
- Second apply a generous dalop of sour cream
- Third add spoonful of applesauce (maybe mix together a little)
- Fourth, enjoy!
How do you eat your latke? Do you like the condiments?
Yesterday, on my way to Pilates, I heard this story on NPR. Definitely a twist on the traditional latke. One day I will try some other recipes out, but not without mom's on the side.
