(FYI, the menorah from the temple that started this holiday had seven prongs. What we light on Chanukah has eight, so that is why it has it’s own special name, “Chanukiah.” Menorah works too, and everyone will actually know what you are talking about.)
Tonight is the sixth night of Chanukah already! How on earth did these past few days sneak by? Mo and I were just saying that as soon as you really settle in and realize it’s Chanukah, it’s almost over. It happens every year. I haven’t even made sufganiyot (doughnuts) yet! Well, tonight’s the night folks. I’m going to use my friend Shayna’s recipe for caramel sufganiyot, make some homemade whipped cream and rock this greasy holiday out!
But, before I get the treats cooking, I will share tonight’s super healthy, quick, and easy dinner. It’s light, nutritious, flavorful…and perfect as a prelude to a really fantastic dessert!
Coconut Curried Chickpeas with Rice
This is one of my favorite easy weeknight dinners, even though I forget about it for months at a time. It’s nice to see you again delicious veggies!
Back tomorrow with sufganiyot and maybe some deep thoughts.
