Potato Pancakes (Latkes)

2 large potatoes, peeled
1 medium onion peeled
2 eggs
3 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
Dash of pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Grate the potatoes and onion on a large-hole grater. Press grated potatoes and onion between paper towels until dry. Combine eggs, milk, and butter, and beat lightly to combine. Add flour, salt, and pepper, and mix well. Fold in grated potatoes and onion. Heat a heavy skillet and add vegetable oil. Spoon about 1/4 cup batter into hot oil and flatten it with the spatula into a 4-inch pancake. Brown both sides. Keep warm in a 250° oven until served. Makes 8 to 10 latkes.

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
