The first night of Chanukah is Friday December 15 (work day for me). I have already set aside Sunday December 10 to do the "make ahead" stuff - cookies, applesauce (yes, from scratch!). Do you make your latkes ahead or not? What can I make beside brisket? (family is tired of this! oy vey!) What traditions did your bubbe and zayde pass down that you want to share with others? What else can I made ahead and stick in the freezer? TIA!
