The First Candle

Our friends Alfie and Judy came to visit from Minneapolis. Our oldest came home to pick up her menorah and to get some home cooking. I’m not such a big fan of latkes. To tell you the truth, there are some years that not a latke crosses my lips. I did decide in honor of the holiday to use lots of olive oil in my cooking.


So we ate breaded whiting ( the pan was well oiled with olive oil)

and eggplant stewed with carrots, tomato paste and chili peppers ( and olive oil),
