Hanukkah Is Not Supposed to Be a Politically Correct Holiday
Big Government ^ | 12/1/10 | Jeff Dunetz

Posted on 12/01/2010 6:01:47 PM PST by Nachum

Today is the first day of Hanukkah, Chanukah and/or חנוכה the Jewish holiday that is spelled a hundred ways in English. Along with the joy of the holiday is the sadness that this minor holiday is continually hijacked by the ACLU and other liberal groups who have no idea what the holiday means.

We lit the Menorah eat some latkes and said a prayer about saving America from the left. Haunkkah is the holiday of fighting for your freedom. We are the modern day Macabees.

When I was little my schul had a big lattke party at Hanukkah time. They were made old school meaning fried in (schmaltz) chicken fat. Eaten with sour cream or apple sauce. Delicious

Lattke is grated potato+ grated onion+ some flour to bind it together.

One popular gift for children is fake gold coins made of chocolate

Chanukah Somayach everyone! I'm making latkes RIGHT NOW! And they are THE REAL THING. I make them old school style, medium shred, just potatoes, onions (no stinkin zucchini and what not). They RULE! ;)

Mine look about like this and I serve them with lox and sour cream (also sour cream with onion soup mix mixed in.)

Nice crunchy outer shred on your lattkes! Both taste good but I prefer lattke with a dab of sour cream rather than apple sauce.

In my opinion lattkes fresh out of the oil should be quickly drained on paper towels or brown paper bags....Then some salt shaken on them to bring out the flavor. Then brought to the table to be devoured fresh and hot.

I like deep fried latkes with some soy sauce and scallions on top.
Jewish food...Chinese food...it’s all the same. :)
Well, except for things like braised pig intestines in oyster sauce.

Nothing against the noble potato pancake, however, in my
Experience, any chick who could make a good latke, could make an even better egg roll. But old school is the way to make ‘em.

You inspired me to try making some pastrami latkes tonight. I’m just going to chop up some pastrami and mix it in. Hope that works. Chanukah Somayach!
