Tonight, Mike and my dad donned head lamps and braved below freezing temperatures to fry latkes on the grill for our family Hanukkah party.
We use the grill method because my dad loves his Lodge cast iron skillet like a third child and jumps at the chance to use it. Also, my mom hates the smell of fried onions and potatoes that lingers in the house, and finds the process messy.
No Hanukkah party is complete without dessert, and we loved my Aunt Trish’s Simcha cake.
