Last night was the first night of Hannukah. To celebrate, we made homemade potato pancakes, which are also known as latkes. The girls were very excited to make them from scratch, and we used a recipe from one of their favorite holiday stories, Latkes, Latkes, Good to Eat, by Naomi Howland. We ate them with applesauce and sour cream, which sounds weird but tastes delicious!
Yesterday was also the first day of winter and the winter solstice. I'm looking forward to the days getting longer. The sun goes down early on the north slope!
