Something Oily and Delicious for Chanukah

It is traditional to eat something oily for Chanukah, such as a potato pancake, a.k.a. latke. I made something similar - I think this is more like hash browns. Whatever it is, I love it.

All you do is grate potatoes. Squeeze out all the moisture – really give it a strong squeeze. Melt plenty of butter in a pan. Add a thin layer of grated potato (even thinner than in the picture above). Sprinkle with salt. Flip. Eat. Flip out.

This picture doesn't do it justice, but I can't take a better one because I ate it as I was writing this post.

Note that she started out by taking vitamins and then switched to real food. Way to go, Dr. Terry Wahls!

Dr. Vernon explains how she started out treating her patients the way she was taught to treat them. And then she found a way that actually helped them get better. Have a look.
