Hahaha! The plot thickens!
רמב"ם הלכות תשובה פרק העשירי, הלכה ב

העובד מאהבה - עוסק בתורה ובמצוות והולך במתיבות החוכמה לא מפני דבר בעולם, לא מפני יראת הרעה ולא כדי לירש הטובה, אלא עושה האמת מפני שהוא אמת

הלכה ג

אהבה גדולה יתרה רבה עזה עד מאד, עד שתהא נפשו קשורה באהבת השם ... וכל שיר השירים משל הוא לענין זה

Cheese Latkes

Posted Image

They did not taste as good as I thought they would (and I still ate too many) I'm not sure what was missing though. Could be because the recipe called for Farmers cheese which I don't have here, and I used a more liquid y cheese which probably also had a different taste.

They look beautiful, though :). What did you use instead of farmer's cheese? I've found that the "Tuv Taam" kind of cheese- it comes wrapped in like a wax paper thing, and then wrapped in plastic wrap.

okay, well we made both of these this channukah, but didn't take any pictures or anything. I missed the thread about the challenge, and I don't think we'll be remaking either.

It seems like such a bad idea to put each challenge in its own thread. If there's a dedicated thread to all challenges, at least I know where to look if I'm not around, when a new one goes up.

Or at least post a link in that thread linking to the new challenge.

There's a dedicated subforum specifically for challenges, but I do believe that this will probably be the last one, since no one seems interested in doing them (beyond belle and rachel b, who both declined to propose another one after the lack of responses to the previous challenges). I specifically picked (boring) challenges this month because I figured EVERYBODY is making latkes, so surely they'll participate in this one. Guess not. I will be continuing them on my blog though, with prizes. Feel free to continue participating there if this fizzles out. /shameless promotion

I'll commit to the next challenge, if you move my whole ramen post there.

I did sweet potato latkes - partly in an attempt to be healthy and partly so that I qualify for this challenge :biggrin: - BUT OMG THEY WERE AMAZING. Seriously, I ate 3 in a row, and that was dinner. Granted, they were fried in a generous amount of oil, but I never dreamed that they could be way better than regular potato latkes.

Will post a pic soon, hopefully.

Big thanks to shuli, bec otherwise I'd never have done that.

What am I?? Chopped liver? I believe I did every challenge besides the bread bowl one, which I don't believe anyone did. personally I'm loving this.
