I was watching diners and dives and they visited a Jewish restaurant and they made kishke this brought all these childhood memories back to me. My mom always bought it at a restaurant and heated it up at home. Her mother did the same, they weren't real big cooks. Shame cuz it was so easy. Most of the process takes 10 minutes in a food processor. So that led to me making a Jewish stew that went with with it called cholent. That was sitting still for 2 seconds and I got a wild idea to make Challah. Well there went my whole night lol This recipe I used was 28 steps long. But I think it's the coolest thing I have ever made and that includes being an art major lol Something about cooking is so therapeutic and relaxing to me. For sure not something I would wanna get paid to do. Scott came home from work at 7:30 last night cuz he had to be in Chicago all day. He looked at my bread and asked if it was Thanksgiving
My Challah going in
Challah all done!
This was fun exploring Jewish foods for a change. Most of my Jewish eating has been in restaurants lol My parents are from Chicago but moved 3 hrs south. So getting good Jewish food unless u make it yourself is pretty impossible where we are from.
My photo blog has been a tag crappy since the lighting change. I rely so much on day light. Getting home at 5 is kind of a bummer. So earlier this week the photos kinda sucked =(
Day 51: I remember learning in photography school. That people are pretty color blind in the dark. You can see color with a camera that you can't see in person. We see more so in shades of grey in the dark. Some color but less than usual.
Day 52: I will never get sick of cute stuff found at goodwill. Halloween is over, which means its more fun to go there and not have to deal with everyone looking for costumes.
Day 53: A good morning because well the unmentionable. And we got our 95 gallon recylcing container! I am so thankful to live in such a progressive community!
Day 54: Miss Josie is old enough to be spayed but she is too light. I swear this cat likes the dogs more than humans. She walks by them and rubs on them. I guess they don't pick her up and she likes that lol
