Big changes are happening all around us right now. This morning we said goodbye to my parents who have been staying a few blocks away from us for the past ten weeks. Tomorrow will be my first day without any help at home with my two children. The weather is cooling down; leaves are falling from the trees. Rosh Hashanah is here again.
We decided to bake challah with Zevi and Ezra this afternoon.
Zevi was an excellent bakers’ assistant. She helped us knead the dough.
And she volunteered to taste the unbaked loaves.
While the loaves rose, we met up with old friends in the park for some afternoon exploring.
On our walk home, I spotted a license plate that seemed to be made for us in this moment.
Upon our return, our loaves had more than doubled in size.
The challah came out perfectly.
This is Zevi and Ezra’s first experience baking bread. I’m looking forward to many more baking sessions as markers of time.
