Winter celebrations

The first day of Hanukkah and the Winter Solstice coincide this year, which means it was dark enough to light the candle very early this evening.

My husband went all out on the latke making.

Meanwhile, my oldest son made his annual pretzel treats, this time with a new “recipe.”  (I’m not sure melting chocolate caramels and pretzels really counts as a recipe, but it’s tasty!)

There were also mutant pink snowman that he made with the help of a silicone mold. I’m not sure anyone is going to be brave enough to eat them.

The kitchen may never recover, but we’re going to eat well for the next couple of days.

Happy Hanukkah!  And bring on the longer days!
