In our family we celebrate Hanukkah and Christmas. My husband is Jewish, so the boys have fun celebrating both holidays. Yesterday I made a Hanukkah feast for us. I made matzo ball soup, latkes, homemade applesauce, and rugalach. It was all so tasty. I especially loved the latkes. They were the best I have ever eaten. Josh did a great job making them.

Boogie showing off his Hanukkah art. I love it.
I also did some baking late last week. I created a lemon poppy seed scone recipe. So good. But then, anything lemon is my favorite.
I decided to attempt to veganize a holiday bread recipe. Many years ago, I had tried this bread at a local gourmet grocer when I was vegetarian and I loved it. So I figured I would give it a go. It turned out amazing. The bread is called panettone, it is an Italian Christmas bread. So good.
Sunday morning I came up with the awesome idea of using the panettone for french bread. Holy wow! This was delicious. Yum!
Friday night I made tacos for us. I made homemade tortillas, and used seasoned soy curls. I made a simple lime coleslaw to put on top and a chipotle lime sour cream as a condiment along with salsa. These were some really good tacos. Even the leftovers were tasty.
The other day, I was thinking about our economy and how a lot of people are struggling. What boggles my mind and Josh said the same thing, is how we are the fattest nation in the world, yet we still have people starving. That makes no sense to me. We like many other people watch our spending as well and try to be frugal where possible. I think everyone everywhere is feeling the pinch of the economy. This being said, I started “The 365 Day Project”. I posted about it on Facebook and got some positive feedback. Several people said they were going to give it a try. If not for a year, at least for a while or do some cutting back. Check out the blog: http://eatinnotout.wordpress.com/about/
Well, I am off to deliver a loaf of panettone to a friend. She makes vegan soap and gave us 4 huge, beautiful bars. Hope you each have a wonderful day.
peas and love….
