Oh my ... how I miss those. My mouth is watering ... salivating ... oh my, oh my! Thank you so much for this!

Savtadotty said...

Tamar, you're so welcome. My not-so-hidden agenda is to tempt you to come home, even if it's just for a visit!

Rotem said...

I wish I was at home now, I would stuff my face full of these.
American Donuts are such a poor replacement.

Happy Hanukkah!

They look wonderful! But I don't see any chocolate.

Savtadotty said...

Rotem - I'll trade you any sufganiya for a Dunkin' Donuts glazed or bear claw.

TLP - For chocolate, see http://www.flickr.com/photos/savtadotty/76354765/

we are talking ribat chalav, and I miss it so much!

Montanus said...

I want some of those donuts! We can only get old dried up donuts at our grocery store. By the way, I really like that clock on your blog. Can you tell me how to put one on mine?

Julie said...

Sign me up for some indigestion!

Savtadotty said...

Timna - it seems this picture has attracted the Israeli diaspora in miniature...too bad you, tamar, and rotem all live in different cities or you could support a bakery of your own!

Frank - I really do miss fresh Dunkin' Donuts. They opened a chain here but failed...the service was poor and the donuts didn't taste the same.

You can get a clock for your blog at clocklink.com and if anyone can tell me how to get it to left-align so it doesn't stick out nearly into the text area, I'd much much obliged.

Julie - (just) plan a visit to Israel at Chanukah time! (No, I do not work for the Ministry of Tourism.)

That Girl said...

MMmmmmmmmm. Pax et lux - Happy Hanukkah!!

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Came to say Happy Hanukkah to you.

Does it start tonight? You must be in the perfect place for it.

Udge said...

Happy Chanukah and best wishes for a happy, healthy, not-too-exciting New Year.

Fred said...

Have a Happy Hanukkah, Savtadotty.

Savtadotty said...

That Girl - Thank you. I hope you have a wonderful celebration too.

TLP - Actually Chanukah starts tomorrow night (December 25). It's not such a major holiday in Israel: schools and banks are not closed. At least we do light candles and eat, and children get money or chocolate (or both).

Udge and Fred - Merry Christmas to you, and good health for 2006!

Thanks for the link/mention... No matter what flavor you celebrate with, I hope you have a fantastic Hannukkah.
