Chanukah Party!

I went to a Chanukah party last night, which was truly one of the most fun nights I've had since moving to New York. A girlfriend I know from California hosted, and her friends proved to be truly wonderful conversationalists and easy laughers, which always comes together to make for the best first-time-meetings. We had a White Elephant gift exchange which turned out to be much more fruitful than these things normally are, homemade latkes were available in abundance and even scrumptious meatballs made a delicious appearance. Caprese skewers made an appearance, three delicious cheeses, and lots of wine and gelt were shared. It was an eat-a-thon! Couple the great attendees with such great food, and you had a celebratory night that truly made me feel the holiday spirit. However, as a shoddy blogger, I took no pictures to highlight the night, so instead you are left with what I could find to generically signify Chanukah. Apologies for the jealousy-inducing joy expressed above, as well as for the lack of personalized photos. Rest assured, however, that our food looked just as good (if not better) as those pictured below. Thanks for a great night Debra!
(Also, brava to you and yours if you noticed that I have indeed spelled Chanukah two different ways in this blog already. You will go far in life with you keen observational skills.)
