Happy 2015!

Happy New Years everyone! Already looking forward to this year! Just yesterday our family got a new little kitten, so now we have little Crookshanks to add into our family.

Isn’t he a cutie?

I’m looking forward to 2015. Not only do I have a clean room, a new kitten and lots of family and friends to share it with, but recently I have started contacting someone who I have not spoken to in a long while and hope becomes part of my life, as well as I have become friends and started dating an amazing boy from school.

How has everyone else’s New Year’s been so far?

Lots of love for the new year,

Rosh Hashana has some awesome food traditions- like apples and honey (which, if I may say, the BEST fruit combination in the world) and round challah. So for Rosh Hashana, my family was treated with an amazing meal consisting of potato latkes (what’s a Jewish holiday without them?), apples and honey, and some meat.

Ah, latkes. They may be the death of me…

This time we made fresh latkes out of potatoes, an onion, some salt and some oatmeal. That’s really it, it is one of the easiest pancake recipes I make. 🙂
