thanks a latke!

i can't believe it, i made out like a bandit this chanukkah. over the past year, my behavior warranted getting new underwear at best--but after eating my lazy assed latkes, good ol' chanukkah charry blessed me with some fine assed vegan fare:

this was from the first night: the ultimate uncheese cookbook, and ween's live at the cat's cradle album/dvd. the cd/dvd set had performances from way back in '91-92 before ween even had a band. back in the good ol' days where they were raw--just the boys, their geetars, and a drum machine. i doubt deaner and gener are vegans, but to gene's credit, he is wearing a chef's hat and goggles on the album cover which is just fine with me.

i also scored veganomicon, vegan-a-go-go, AND the vidalia chop wizard suggested as a must have by vegannifer. in fact, the chopper was the gift on the first night of chanukkah. i ran some onions and baked potatoes through the wizard and made those lazy assed latkes shown above. they were hardly effort in slackerdom. truth be told they were actually labor intensive and not as great as i had hoped, which in the eyes of a jew like me is just right. i call them lazy because i bake the potatoes first. here's the recipe:

jewbacca's lazy assed latkes

5-6 baked taters (smallish)
1 medium yellow onion
1 t salt
1 t pepper
1T garlic granules
2T flour
1/4 c of "milk"
2/3 c. of silken tofu
some oil for a fryin'

take a cheez grater and grate the taters n' onions, set aside. in a blender blend the salt, pepper, garlic, flour, milk, and silken tofu to a smooth consistency. mix everything together, but don't mix it too much--you want the mixture to have the stringy potato/onions intact. make patties, and fry the shit outta them in a little bit of oil. for the love of g-d USE A NON-STICK SKILLET, or you will wind up pissed and sad. top the latkes with sour cream, apple sauce, or whatever floats your boat. if your latkes fall apart, fear not. you have hash browns and can smother them in gravy.

you definitely made out like a bandit!! i love that uncheese book!! i don't have it, but i've looked through it at the bookstore.

i totally know what you mean about using a non stick skillet!!! i made zucchini pancakes and it was the death of me. they tasted amazing, but they were NOT pancakes.

Hey Jen,

Here's what the Foodbuzz people told me:

"It looks like your friend has not sent us her agreement letter. We sent it to her on December 23rd and have not received it back."

Once you send the letter in, they'll tell you what to do about banners and stuff :o)

I do accept as true with all of the ideas you have presented in your post.
They are very convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts
are very brief for starters. Could you please prolong
them a little from next time? Thank you for the post.

I believe what you said was very logical. However,
what about this? suppose you wrote a catchier title? I am
not saying your content is not solid, but what if you added something that grabbed people's attention? I mean "thanks a latke!" is kinda boring. You might peek at Yahoo's
front page and note how they create news headlines to get people interested.

You might add a related video or a pic or two to get readers excited about everything've got to say. Just my opinion, it could bring your website a little livelier.

P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

I've been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your blog?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
Maybe you could space it out better?

Undeniably believe that which you stated.
Your favorite justification seemed to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think
about worries that they just do not know about. You managed
to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take
a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
