Hello! This post is on the random side. Our week was short because Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year started on Wednesday night. I made two labor intensive dishes for the holiday, which I’ll post about soon. For Wednesday night, I made two challahs. This is them out of the oven with my camera phone. Below that is the good picture from the first time I made them in August.
I really recommend if you have an itch to make challah that you give it a try. It’s a very rewarding process at the end! A labor intensive recipe, but really very good. I can see that it might be my job for future holidays. And, baking a homemade challah is a mitzvah!
Then, there was this cute girl. Lily has started sleeping closer to my stomach at night. Maybe it’s a coincidence, or maybe she senses something is changing. But I wake up and she is sometimes nuzzled over the comforter next to my stomach. It’s very cute. She is going to be a good big sister.
This was the second dish I baked for Thursday lunch. It is an apple cake from a recipe in Everyday With Rachael Ray from many years ago. I saved it in my recipe binder but had never made it. Apples are great for Fall and Rosh Hashanah! I’ll write more about this next week.
And one teaser picture…since I never show me dressed up anymore. This was a Week 16 picture yesterday, I took a better profile picture in snugger clothes.
Have a good weekend! It’s October tomorrow! The first of my three favorite months!
