Happy Hanukkah and Happy Thanksgiving!

It's a beautiful morning...

Making Challah to take to our neighbors...

Recipe books out for Challah and pumpkin pies...

Ta dah! By 10:30am I've made the pies, Challah 
and three little custards from leftover pie filling.
Have a Happy Day!!

For those of you who are wondering why 
Hanukkah is so early this year here's a short explanation:
Hanukkah is observed for eight nights and days, starting on the 25th day of Kislev according to the Hebrew calendar, which may occur at any time from late November to late December in the Gregorian calendar.


  1. Beautiful pictures. I hope you have a relaxing and Happy Thanksgiving. Take care.

  2. A blessed and beautiful Thanksgiving and Hanukkah to you and yours! It all looks delicious.

  3. Happy Hanukkah and Happy Thanksgiving to you as well. Your baking talents are beyond description. Those pies and Challah
    are beautiful. (delicious I am sure!)

  4. Oh yummy. What a baker you are.

    Have a fabulous Thanksgiving honey. Big hugs. ♥♥♥

  5. Happy Hanukkah and Thanksgiving to you, too! :)
