For the first light of Chanukah, I had a latke party with Avdi, J&C, and K–his first time here–at my apartment. Actually it was the first time all of us have been in my apartment together. It was like a housewarming. I made two kinds of latkes, Sephardic-spiced ones from scratch, and traditional Ashkenazic ones from a mix, served with yogurt and sautéd sweet cinnamon apples. I almost forgot to take latke photos, they went so fast! For dessert we had tea and See’s Marshmints, courtesy of The Bobs, with mixed reviews–more for me!
Tomorrow I’ll go to their house for second light, and gift-giving.
