This time, I made challah, using the recipe from Peter Reinhart's Artisan Breads Every Day. If you're interested in making quality bread, you can get it on Amazon.com, and you really should! I've never found a recipe of his that wasn't delicious.
Just one problem - the smell of the bread baking and cooling down before slicing nearly drove me nuts.
And for a special breakfast (Wednesday is our 48th anniversary!), try this recipe for Meyer Lemon French Toast.
Our newest family member has reminded us why kittens are so much fun to watch. He's a bit of an imp, full of energy and brimming with personality!
Tommy loves bird watching from his perch in the cat tree...
...but right now it's time for a nap!
He loves exploring, including under the rug.
He also managed to hoist himself up over the fireplace screen to do some more exploring
Here he's preparing to attack another long-suffering fur-baby!
He's actually quite fetching in his tuxedo.
When he naps, it's sometimes challenging to figure out which end is up!
I won't even apologize for the photo quality here as these pix were shot through glass and screen. This is a bird we'd never seen before, and we discovered it's a rose-breasted grosbeak. The source we consulted said that they are rarely seen in our area; they travel through as they migrate between their winter and summer homes.
