Latke Time & Next Week’s Meal Plan


Um, was anyone going to tell me that the first night of Hanukkah is this Sunday night?

I was not aware of this until a few days ago (I thought it was starting next Sunday!) so aside from revising my dinner plan for this Sunday to now be all about Hanukkah foods, it’s time to revisit my sweet potato latke recipe (potato latkes are potato pancakes) and include the ingredients in my shopping list for today.

The above photo is from my  original sweet potato latke post two years ago so I am hoping to update that post this weekend and maybe even play around with the recipe a bit (coconut flour this time?).

And, if I am feeling up for more recipe experimenting this weekend, donuts are on my list (donuts are a Hanukkah tradition) along with this recipe for potato kugel from Smitten Kitchen.

Last year’s sweet potato latkes – so good!

Of course Trader Joe’s has stopped carrying my favorite Japanese Sweet Potatoes, just when I wanted to try using them in my latkes. Off to Whole Foods I suppose.

    After being sick I’m not at all ready for Hanukkah! No joke we’re actually postponing it since literally nothing is ready – I don’t need the pressure. But I do need some latkes, stat. Those I always make an exception for. And as a family we’re split between sweet and white potatoes so I need to do both.

    I do not celebrate Hanukkah traditionally, but I do LOVE latkes!!! The business owners who I work for are Jewish, so we have all the foods every year! It’s honestly my favorite time of year just because the food is so good! Another great time of year thanks the the Jews; passover!
    This weekend the only fun thing on the agenda is brunch on Sunday.

    Never made or eaten latkes before, not for any reason- I’ve just never noticed them as an option anywhere. But these do look really good. I got in late last night after going to the cinema so I just made a chicken avocado sandwich and roasted butternut chips 🙂
