the wine bottle menorah is back for year 2!
Chanukah is about a miracle of light, and of oil. But this year it is beginning (now!) freakishly close to Thanksgiving, which turned out to be a celebration of...butter. So much butter. I'm amazed that none of us keeled over. I'm avoiding potatoes for a few more days, too, post-Thanksgiving because I cooked mashed potatoes & sweet potato casserole and then took those leftovers home. I'm a little over starched.
For the next 8 nights of Chanukah, I will have a gift for you all! And by "gift" I mean post. Sorry. Unless you want to send me your home address and I'll send you a leftover pumpkin pie in a cupcake from Thanksgiving because I can't eat anymore of them.

If you're dissatisfied with this, here's what the cupcakes looked like:
