It's Hanukkah at my pad, which means it's time to make potato latkes and eat jelly donuts. (I know, real healthy, but I didn't invent it, so don't give me any snide remarks!)
I went to the store to pick up the donuts. I scoured that place, but could not find even one jelly-filled donut. Since I don't know where any other donut stores are, and I don't feel like making them from scratch, I bought a dozen glazed donuts. Good enough, I thought.
Unfortunately, my kids didn't think so. "Mom, this isn't right," my daughter said. "We need jelly donuts."
"Listen, this is all I could find. Just deal with it."
"I can't deal with it," my daughter said. "It's Hanukkah and we need jelly donuts!"
I went to the refrigerator and pulled out a jar of grape jelly. I opened it, and smeared a layer of the purple stuff on top of a donut and handed it to her. "There you go. A jelly donut, just for you!"
I don't know if I'll be here tomorrow, but I'd like to wish all of you in the USA who celebrate Thanksgiving, a very Happy Thanksgiving! And in the spirit of the holiday, I'd like to thank all of you for following me and being my blog friends!
