It's hard to believe that almost seven weeks has passed since Pesach, but
it's true - Shavuot is coming at the end of the week.
And in a bid to stay on top of things and not get bogged down with a
million things on Friday - the day before Shavuot - we made challah today.
We used the same recipe we always do, we just did some different shaping.
Here's the first one:
In case you can't tell (and don't feel bad, my big kids couldn't tell either*),
it's a Torah. It looks a lot more like a Torah before it was baked. I am really
feeling like my oven is lopsided, forcing doughs and batters to come out uneven
all the time. Nevertheless, the above was my attempt at a Torah...
And here's the other idea we had:
Cut out flower shaped pieces of challah dough and glue** them on to the
challah before baking. I used a very small cookie cutter for the flowers and
used tiny pieces of dough rolled into balls for the flower centers.
*It looks like a potato with his hands over his heads and a star on his shirt, mommy.
** egg wash.

Of course you are,
your shirt is dirty :)
