I hope this is not blasphemous, but I made challah yesterday. I explained to D16 that it is a bread traditionally served for the Jewish sabbath meal and at other celebratory occasions. He said, so is that blasphemous for a non-Jew to make it for a non-Jewish occasion? All I can say is that I hope not. And in case we needed something to celebrate in order to have it, we had the start of his baseball season last night. The varsity team played really well. And unfortunately, the JV team that D16 is on just didn’t play as well. And D16, in particular, had a bad night. I’ve seldom seen him so down. But I remember other first games of the season that went that way, and I think it’ll go better after this. Here he is before the game:
Here is one of the challah loaves I made. It is delicious and beautiful.
I used this video to help me make the six-stranded braid. I also used the recipe from her site, but I used half whole wheat flour/half white flour.
