So the last few weeks have been a whirlwind of school holidays, Chanukah candles, fried foods, family dinners, Faiths (belated) birthday party, a visit from Wendi’s daughter, Sivan, a visit from our Australian family and my mom came to visit for two weeks.
I think I will just let some of Paul’s photos do the talking…
After an awesome day spent with my husband for his #Big40, and eating almost non stop, Paul picked up a pack of chicken schnitzel for supper last night. Which fits in perfectly with the ‘Fry All The Things’ chanukah meal plan.
I love a fresh, home made, schnitzel and its one of the things I never would have made myself before coming to Israel, here it is pretty much one of the most traditional things you can eat. My kids love it too and its one of our favourite meals, even if it takes a bit of time to prepare.
We set our menorah in a window where everyone can see the light, we eat fried foods, latkes and doughnuts in particular and we play games and generally have a good time.
Tonight is the first night of Chanukah and Aaron has been asking us everyday for a week when we will be lighting the menorah. I cant wait to see his face tonight.
I also got my mom to buy me a mini donut maker from Clicks earlier so that I can make us some home made doughnuts for dessert tonight (I am petrified of deep frying anything so this seemed like a good alternative.)
