Happy Hanukkah

Last week this time it was Thanksgiving (feels like just yesterday) and today is the first day of Hanukkah. You can always count on Thanksgiving to fall on November 20-something, but Hanukkah, well this holiday just shows up whenever it feels like it. Or so it seems.

For the first night of Hanukkah, I wanted to eat something with potatoes but something low maintenance.  Too soon for latkes. I decided I’d have a relaxing night with cheese fries, a glass of wine, and Eat, Pray, Love. I was never interested in watching this movie but Colleen’s post made me think it was a good idea!

I got all of the ingredients for the #1 Cheese Sauce A-Tooch wrote about here and got started.

I used flour instead of cornstarch and it worked just fine.  I also used extra amounts of all of the spices, perhaps too much Frank’s hot sauce.  But once I started splashing the hot sauce into the mix I got carried away. I also have no idea how much cheese I used. I didn’t have a good way to measure 4 oz. so I guestimated and taste-tested my way through this cheese sauce. I really liked the final product – feel free to play around with your ingredient measurements too!

I’ll also mention that I never (until now) buy frozen fries.  I was so surprised that the bag says it contains 9 servings yet is the amount is maybe 2-3 restaurant size servings.  So, I probably ate 4 servings of fries.  Hey if restaurants can over-serve on fries then so can I.

How good does this look?  So good, so cheesy! (and spicy – oops!)

This cheese fry is coming right at you!

Happy Hanukkah everyone!

    Awesome! Sounds like a perfect night to me. I curled up with a glass of wine, a big bowl of spaghetti and meatballs, and my Mac last night. Spent the night writing blog posts and just chilling.
