Dine on a Dime

The first December storm was passing through. Surrounded by the "warm" waters of the Bay of Fundy we were lucky. It did not come down in the form of snow as further inland, but as a healthy amount of rain. The more unfortunate got up to 30 cm (1') wet white stuff within the last two days!
After the storm, view from the living room
This kind of gloomy fall weather demands comfort food.
Therefore we decided for something easy. Our choice fell on "latkes" or "potato pancakes" or "Reibekuchen" as it is familiar to us.
Potato pancake with apple sauce
Hubby was in the mood to do the work and he did a great job.
The orange bits are shredded carrots
A heap of crisp baked latkes arrived on the table nicely arranged on a platter, but you are lucky to get these few glimps only, because we were so greedy that most of them were already gone before I thought of grabbing the camera.
mmmh, sooo good!
We like our Reibekuchen with home made apple sauce.

He announced his home made dinner as "dine on a dime" because it is NOT very expensive. Really.

Sorry, nothing left behind.
