We went to Philadelphia for the Thanksgiving weekend to visit our families.
Wednesday night was the first night of Hanukkah so we made potato latkes for dinner. My mom had both baking and sweet potatoes and we found this Cooking Light Two-Potato Latkes recipe for the ingredients.
We opted for the not so light but more traditional cooking method.
We had both sour cream and applesauce for our latkes, along with a childhood favorite, cornflake chicken, and steamed green beans. I am not a huge potato fan so adding the sweet potatoes into these latkes made them perfect for me.
We also had this great hard cider with dinner.
Good Intent Cider is my friend Jenn and her husband Adam’s business. They make it on his family farm in Gettysburg and it is so good. This version is a special bourbon barrel aged cider and it’s dry with a hint of bourbon flavor. It was the perfect compliment to our dinner.
There are still a few more nights of Hanukkah but the latkes are a great side dish any time of year. We even warmed the leftovers in a pan the next morning and made an egg hash for breakfast. And if you are in Gettysburg or State College, definitely try Good Intent Cider.
