Rebecca was buried alive under 50 pounds of potatoes!
dozing off
Yes, that's what greeted me when I arrived at the temple early Friday afternoon to help with the latke fry. 50 pounds of potatoes! I never got an exact poundage on the onions, but there were a lot of them, too. The temple kitchen was something of a frenzy with so many people peeling, chopping, mixing, frying, and flipping. It was literally a hot mess, and it was roasting! There were several frying pans and griddles on, so 5-6 people could fry all latkes at once. We cranked up the A/C and threw open all the doors and windows to try to cool the place, but it wasn't very cold outside. I was cooking latkes for something like two hours! I had to wear my Praise Cheeses! shirt to sweat over the stove in and change into a nicer top later. (Last year's Hanukkah latke dinner is here.)

Even for Hanukkah, there was a BIG turnout, but fortunately, we had enough latkes and brisket for everyone. I ate all I could hold. I really love latkes. One day I want to trying making them outside of temple. I mentioned to my mom wanting to make some latkes at her house during Hanukkah (she has a griddle, food processor, and bigger kitchen) but she didn't seem to like that idea. Oh, well.

This was a very stressful weekend. I'm glad it's almost over. And...
