getting festive around here. happy hanukkah, y’all.
i made indian latkes from scratch with fresh-ground spices, mediterranean veggies with fresh greek oregano, apples and pears in a sweet cardamom sauce, and yogurt with fresh cilantro and mint.
then we made a quick trip to the fen, but must have just missed our beaver. still, some nice sunset shots.
then we lit the candles and played dreidel. note: no dreidel rules ever make any sense. so we invented the ultimate dreidel drinking game. it was fun. here are the rules, if you dare:
nun= 🙁 no one drinks.
gimel= all drink.
hey= all toast “HEY” and drink.
shin= other person drinks yours, you pass. in a group: everyone drinks but you.
take it from me–these rules RULE. try it some time. sippy-cups are allowed.
i’ll post these photos, and later the others (there’s some kind of lag between editing my iPhotos and getting WP to upload the edits). stay tuned…
