My fully-lit Chanukah menorahs. Most images show all the candles at once,
but this really only happens on the eighth day of the holiday, which was December 17, 2020.
The Last 4 Days of Chanukah
For each night, I tried to make a special meal.
Dinner the fifth night: stuffed eggplant and salad.
The sixth night: curried squash with red lentils.
The seventh night: note small decoration hanging on the patio door.
What we ate: green chile cornbread and cowboy caviar
(a made-up recipe since we can't get Trader Joe's)
My cowboy caviar: a mixture of black beans and corn
with green onion, cilantro, lime juice, vinegar, oil, sugar and catsup(!).
The eighth, and last night of Chanukah. We had lamb roast
(a New Zealand leg of lamb that was waiting in the freezer)
with roasted brussels sprouts and a good wine.
