Latke Double Down

Because we at Indigo Jones are equal opportunity minded, we decided that we would not let race, gender or religion cloud our posts. So, in the holiday spirit, we bring you the gross out sandwich of the season:

The Latke Double Down!

You might remember awhile back, when we wrote about KFC’s disgusting Double Down, a sandwich that replaced the bun with 2 fried chicken cutlets. Not to be outdone, the Jewish Journal created a Hanukkah version, called the Latke Double Down.

This delicacy takes 2 greasy potato pancakes and fills them with sliced brisket, sour cream and applesauce.  We cannot even begin to calculate the calorie count.

Oy Vey!

Happy New Year!

September 17, 2012

Why does Jewish “comfort food” leave me so uncomfortable?

Last night marked the start of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. As always, it is celebrated with way too much heavy food! I spent the whole day in the kitchen preparing for our big meal.

We started our feast with chicken soup, accompanied by both fluffy matzoh balls and kreplach; a meat-filled dumpling that goes into the soup. Ours featured chicken and was a big hit!


It was followed by a gratuitous salad that nobody ate but me, and a brisket roasted with tomatoes,onions, carrots, celery and red wine.

We had potato pancakes with homemade applesauce as a side dish and a traditional challah bread.

For dessert, there was a honey cake with fresh whipped cream.

I skipped all the meat, but filled up on more carbs at one meal than I generally eat for a whole month, or two! That and a little (okay,more than just a little) red wine, has left me stuffed to the gills.

Happy New Year everyone! Wishing you all a happy, healthy and prosperous year ahead!
