Hanukkah Day Four

I thought I would start out by sharing  a simple Hanukkah recipe with you.

Latkes

Ingredients:

  • 2 potatoes peeled
  • 1 small onion peeled
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp. milk
  • 2 tbsp. melted butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • black pepper
  • Oil for frying( or butter)
  • sour cream, apple sauce

Directions:

Grate potatoes and onions. In another bowl add eggs, milk and melted butter and blend together. Next add flour, salt and pepper. Pour over potatoes and onions and stir to mix. Drop by quarter cupfuls on a prepared griddle or skillet. Spread to make a 4" pancake. Cook until brown on both sides, turning often. Serve with sour cream, apple sauce, or any other favorite.

I like to add different types of condiments like smoked salmon in cream cheese. Or I have had pear sauce, picante sauce. If you have any favorites I love to hear it and share the recipe with me.

Tonight will be the forth night of Hanukkah any you will light the forth candle. Remember to put the candles in from right to left (like reading Hebrew) and them after you light the Shamash you light the others from left to right.You recite these two blessing before lighting the candles.

1st Blessing~Hebrew (Sepharidc/Modern Israeli): Baruch atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech Ha-Olam, asher kiddeshanu b’mitzvotav, vitzivanu, lehadlik ner shel Hanukkah.

English: Blessed are You, Lord our God, Ruler of the universe, who has sanctified us with Your commandments, and has commanded us to kindle the lights of Hanukkah. 
 
2nd Blesssing~Hebrew (Sepharidc/Modern Israeli): Baruch atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech Ha-Olam, she-asah nissim la-avotaynu bayamim ha-hem bazman hazeh.
English: Blessed are you, Lord our God, Ruler of the universe, who wrought miracles for our fathers in days of old, at this season. 

Here are some links that may help out. 

We also read scriptures. Here are a few scripture ideas to read the 4th night of Hanukkah.


1 For Zion’s sake I won’t keep silent, and for Jerusalem’s sake I won’t sit still until her righteousness
   shines out like a light, and her salvation blazes like a torch.

Luke 1:79

 79 to give light to those who are sitting in darkness and in the shadow of death,
      to guide us on the path of peace.”
8 You were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord, so live your life as children of light.

All scriptures are taken from the Common English Bible
