I felt pretty crappy all day. I had, and still have, this constant gagging feeling in my throat. I’m not currently sick, I don’t have anything stuck in my throat, it’s just there. Nothing I do will make it stop. The only semi-relief I get is by laying on my side.
We did some cleaning up today but not a whole lot since I wasn’t feeling well. So I guess that’s what we’ll do tomorrow.
This week’s recipe is for all my Jewish friends out there! There is no better way to spend Hanukkah than eating latkes. I have my own recipe so I’m going to type it out for you. I apologize in advance, some ingredients don’t have exact measurements. I eyeball them according to the bowl I’m using.
Potato Latkes for Hanukkah
- 2 containers of dried hash browns (sold in a pack of 8 at Costco)
- 2 eggs
- Garlic salt
- Dried onions
- Oil for frying
- Heat griddle to high temperature and add just enough oil to fry.
- Open both containers of hash browns. Fill one container to the fill line with hot water. Let sit until the potatoes absorb the water. Pour hash brown containers into a mixing bowl.
- Add eggs, garlic salt (to taste), and dried onions (to taste). Mix until combined.
- Use a scoop to scoop mixture into oil. Be careful as the oil may splatter.
- Fry potatoes until crispy on bottom, then flip. Fry other side until crispy.
- Place on paper towels to remove excess oil.
Most people top their latkes with either sugar, applesauce, or sour cream. So try them or add your own twist.
Have a good week.
