As E will be a bit incapacitated after a medical procedure tomorrow, she took preemptive action in the kitchen and baked two beautiful challahs in anticipation of Friday. The challenge is to not eat them ahead of time! If samples accidentally fall into our mouths, may lightning not strike us! Oops, too late! 😉 At least we perished happy. (Honestly, I’ve never had, or made, challah like this. Trust me. They are The Real Deal.) I wish photos could convey aroma, texture, and taste.
