Tonight was the last night of Hanukkah. We have been celebrating (nearly) every night this week with special foods and enjoying our menorah. Tonight I made a delish chicken soup with matzo balls. If you have not tried My Matzo Balls, I really encourage you to try this recipe. The secret is to only let the dough rest for one hour before boiling the matzo balls. The longer you let the dough rest - the harder the matzo balls. True, some people like their matzo balls hard and dry... we prefer our matzo balls to be "fluffy floaters". Matzo Meal dough
Every candle is lit on the menorah the last night of Hanukkah - so beautiful! I had finally purchased an electric menorah for the RV, because of the "fire hazard", but couldn't bring myself to schlep a foot-tall electric menorah along on a month-long trip if we would only use it the first night of the trip.
After letting the dough rest for one hour, I began to boil the matzo balls in salted water. Boiling. Boiling. Boiling. Tonight I served My Matzo Balls in a triple-strength home-made organic chicken stock with shredded chicken, carrots, and celery.
It was really yummy. So happy to be cooking foods that millions of women around the world are cooking tonight. So happy to be eating foods that millions of people all around the world are eating tonight.
