We celebrated the sixth night of Chanukah with homemade latkes, mouthwatering brisket, jelly donut holes, and our sweet neighbors!
I make homemade latkes exactly once a year because the grating and frying is labor intensive. Mama and I followed the recipe in our favorite Jewish cookbook: “Chocolate Chip Challah” by Lisa Rauchwerger. We made them this afternoon, kept them warm in the oven, and served them with sour cream and cinnamon applesauce. Leftovers will be featured in tomorrow’s breakfast!
Tonight’s brisket cooked in less than an hour, thanks to our beloved InstantPot. This is its own Chanukah miracle, as brisket used to take five to six hours to slow roast to perfection. Our first pressure-cooked brisket, and it was delicious!
We loved sharing the holiday with our friends and teaching them how to play dreidel with chocolate gelt. And the jelly donut holes for dessert were so good! Our home felt festive with a colorful paper chain, candles glowing, dreidel place cards, and British Chanukah crackers with paper crowns and jokes.
Today’s #OneGoodThing was a wonderful, fun Chanukah celebration with loved ones!
Day 351 of 365. And Day 717 in a row!
