It’s not really a recipe. You peel and grate a bunch of potatoes. Preferably, you get your husband to peel and grate a bunch of potatoes. Grate in some onions, too. It’s good to do it in small batches with onions in each so the potatoes don’t have a chance to discolor. You add an egg or two and some matzo meal and salt, and fry lumps of the batter in oil. Make sure the oil’s hot when you put them in (a drop of water should sizzle when dropped in) so that they don’t soak up too much oil. This is very undefinitive and I’m sorry.

  1. Rufus seems to be able to tolerate things being put on his head better than Ned. On the weekend we tried to put one of those reindeer headband things on him and he made a weird noise. We weren’t sure if it was a growl or a belch, but we took them off pretty quickly.
    Happy holidays!
