Wordless Wednesday Christmas in the Kitchen December 27, 2017

Braided and baked 4 loaves of Challah
3 for friends and 1 for us.... 
Made one large apple pie for dessert.... 

And cleaned up after making lots of marmalades
for friends and family....
We had a lovely Christmas Day....

Happy New Year!!!


  1. What a lovely day. Hubby and I worked together for a great meal yesterday too. We both ate way too much, but is was a most peaceful day.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday, Kathe. Big hug to you and Russell and tons of scritches for my girl. Miss Lucy. ♥♥♥

  2. Lovely, a great way to spend the day!

  3. You were busy. The challah looks so good.

  4. Oh it all looks so delicious ~ yummy photos!

    Happy New Year to you ^_^

  5. Looks like the kitchen was a very busy and aromatic place this year.

  6. What a great picture of the deer. To answer your question about the possom, he does seem to get along with all the cats. They are just interested in his different looking tail. He just comes up on our front porch and cleans up all the cat food. He is cute.

  7. Since Challah is basically a Jewish food and I am Jewish, you ARE sending one to ME, right? Of course you are....hehehe Happy New Year! catchatwithcarenandcody

    I love Challah bread! Beautiful and very good! Much of my childhood was in a Jewish Orthodox neighborhood on Chicago's NW side. You are very gifted, indeed, to cook and bake so beautifully, as well as your photographic treats. I am impressed.

  9. Looks like a wonderful way to spend the holiday! Happy New Year to you too!
