Happy Hanukkah

We had a nice dinner of latkes, roast chicken, nut loaf( from thanksgiving) with sour cream and the last jar of my homemade applesauce from last fall.

We lit the candle ( one, for the first night). Then we each had a little gift of cash, and B got us 1 lottery ticket. I never win anything so… but he actually recouped $6.00. Still, it was fun to chat and share this time with Sachi and Zephyr and Barclay. My family.

Today I’m doing the Flylady bedroom zone. It’s pretty much done as I change the sheets on Sundays. But I will dust and tidy.

Other than that, just a nice quiet day home.

Yesterday I did make another batch of homemade peanut brittle. I had bought a candy thermometer and it was a great $10 buy as right on it is the temperatures for hard brittle etc. Well worth it to have.

I might make a soup tonight or just something light. Latkes are fried and although not really heavy still fried!! So I have a butternut squash from our garden to use so I think that’s what I’ll make. I found a recipe that was butternut squash and red lentil soup. It’s kinda a curry so I might do that.

This is my red fiesta ware that I use at Christmas. Oh, in the background you can see the peanut brittle.
