So… the Channukah party yesterday went quite well, all things considered. At its peak, I had seven guests, four of whom stayed until about 2 in the morning. We played dreidel, listened to music, watched Mel Brooks movies, and generally enjoyed ourselves. And, of course, I had my first foray into latka-making.
How did it go, you ask? About as well as can be expected. The latkas tasted like latkas (and I can feel my arteries clogging even as I type this the next day). The only problem was that they were a little loose and had the tendency to fall apart. I think I know why it happened, namely I didn’t drain the potatoes well enough. In any case, I have high hopes that I can continue the trend with another party next year.
And now I must finish cleaning up from the party. TTFN!
