Hanukkah and Christmas

The first night of Hanukkah was last night.

On thursday night Chris and I got our first Christmas tree together, and my first Christmas tree ever!

We are having the family over to our apartment for Hanukkah this year for our annual latke party...

I still have no menorah :(

The thing is, I want a menorah, but I can't find a pretty one online for less than $450! I just want something beautiful.

Any suggestions for where to purchase a great menorah?

I think gold or brass or cast iron are the best color options. I really want one that will look nice with lots of warm Christmas decor. Although, maybe I could keep my tree red and white and gold and such, and then have the back room decorated with silver and blue and such... hummm.

Anyway, stay tuned for latkes with bagels with smoked fishes from Russ and Daughters. And if you ask nicely I might be able to request a published version of my Aunt's famous latke recipe!

Robin! Thanks for your encouragement on my lil' blog. It's nice to know that even those who love and have studied photography take it easy when it comes to their food blogging. Also, you might want to check out a.) etsy for a beautiful handmade menorah or check out b.) specialty resale/thrift/antique shops (Rough n' Ready in DC comes to mind) to see what they have in stock. Good luck!
