Now for this week's contribution:
Since tonight is the first night of Chanukah, I would usually make potato latkes. These fried lovelies stink up a house, are time consuming to make, and fill out a waistline but are worth every fried bite. They are so delicious and a one time of year indulgence. Since I'm sick and the hubs is away, latkes will have to wait until he gets home, but you lucky ducks can have my super easy and delicious recipe.

Happy Chanukah Latkes
(feeds about 4 people as a side dish)

3 large yukon gold potatoes
1 large onion
1 egg
applesauce (optional)
sour cream (optional)

How to:
1. Clean and peel potatoes
2. Using a food processor, shredd potatoes and onions. There should be an even ratio of potato to onion, or slightly less onion.
3. Mix potatoes and onions with egg and a little bit of flour until the mixture holds together. 
4. Season with salt and pepper to taste
5. Heat oil in an electric frying pan. Do not splatter or overheat!
6. Add small scoops of potato mixture to oil and fry until you get desired temperature. (I prefer less cooked latkes, while many love them crispy!)
7. Remove from oil and blot with paper towels.
8. Serve hot with apple sauce or sour cream.
9. Enjoy!
Now it's your turn. What are you cooking up this week?
