Happy Hanukkah!

I'm in shock at how early Hanukkah came this year.  Here I am, polishing off the last of the pumpkin whoopie pies and still eating turkey sandwiches, and I've got no time for dieting before having to dunk my head in a vat of hot oil (otherwise known as "frying the latkes").

Since I'm still in a post-Thanksgiving haze, I haven't had much time to prepare for Hanukkah.  If I were a better Chew, though, I would have tried my hand at something like this engineering marvel created by my awesomely crafty aunt:

This, boys and girls, is a honest-to-goodness gingerbread menorah, constructed entirely out of edible goodness, designed (with help from my architect uncle) to stand by itself, and complete with candles that actually can be lit.

It's a Hanukkah miracle!  Ok, not actually a miracle, but a pretty ingenious creation.

My husband and I will be celebrating the first night of Hanukkah with a simple pot roast dinner at home, preceded by the lighting of our (not edible) menorah.  If you're celebrating as well, we hope you have a festive and glowing night.

May you have an inspired and creative holiday season!

happy hanukah!

we're in a post-Thanksgiving/dude's birthday turkey coma over here too, so we're mixing up the holidays and making turkey carcass matzo ball soup and parve double chocolate cake for tonight. There are supposedly going to be latkes at the university's menorah lighting tonight. I'll let them smell like fried food for me!
