Our Annual Mother/Daughter Christmas Tea together is one of the things I look most forward to over the holiday season. My Scottish mom introduced me to this when I was 5 years old. Each day when I would come home from kindergarten she would have a linen place mat and afternoon tea set for just us two! It made me feel so special and loved. It’s nice now that I get to do the same for her at 88 years old. Merry Christmas Mom.
Did you ever wonder why we eat latkes during Hanukkah? Not that we need a reason to have crispy fried potatoes and onions….
The reason we eat latkes and jam-filled donuts is because they are fried in oil, because of the miracle of the oil lasting for 8 days that we celebrate! And, because they’re delicious!
I make my latkes really easy to make with the kids because I used mashed potatoes combined with thawed frozen hash browns! 2 cups of hashbrowns, 4 small potatoes, ½ onion, 3/4 cup of matzoh meal, 2 eggs, 1 tsp salt, ½ tsp of pepper and add in some fresh chopped parsley and dill for fun! Mix those babies up and form into patties and then fry until golden!! 🥔
Eat them with applesauce and/or sour cream and you’ll be so happy!

Happy Lucia day! This is my favourite tradition. Every year on December 13th, the 400 year old tradition of St. Lucia, is celebrated. Dressed in white, girls and boys all over Sweden brighten the winter darkness with candles and traditional songs. 🇸🇪✨
