Tricolore latkes

Baby cat’s dinenr tonight was inspired by the bouquet of flowers that got a batch of new water. Colorful, but she only ate the little grasses and white flowers.

My dinner was similarly colorful: three color  latkes – made with carrots, sweet potato and beets. It does not take much, shredding them, some flour, egg and spices, and frying them up. Accompanied by salad and a Greek yogurt herb sauce.
