    One Thanksgiving at my folks’ Mom calculated how many mashed potatoes everybody was eat so that there’d be enough leftovers for my then fiance to make potato pancakes. “Cheryl [my sister] won’t eat much”. Cheryl (at dinner): “Oh, boy! Mashed potatoes!” We ended up with about half a cup. Personally, I blame my nephew – he was born the following June.

    The Scandinavians has their version of latkes too, only they use fish instead of potatoes. Sort of a lye-died fish. Like tie-died but with less color.

    “latke” means “small patch” and comes from the word
    “late” meaning “patch” as in “to sew on a patch” I thought you ‘guys’ would like to know that. I guess the potato pan cakes must have got that name because in days gone by sewing was all in a day’s work … and those potato pancakes sputtering in oil do look like little patches…

    Yeah, it had to be. Hanukka can be as early as in late November.
