I love fall. Simply love it. I pretty much adore everything about it!
Today I wanted to share a video about you that I made about making challah bread and decorating a fall table. We were preparing to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles, which is such a nice thing to do in the fall. While this year we did not do much to recognize the Feast of Trumpets or The Day of Atonement unfortunately, we did celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles.
I plan to decorate for Thanksgiving in much the same way. This is perfect because I already have everything that I need. The plates and place mats came from Dollar Tree, which fit into my budget perfectly.
Here is my Challah Bread recipe if you would like to try it. I try to explain how to make it in the video. Just click the play button above to watch.
Challah Bread Recipe:
-2 tsps yeast
-7/8 c water
-1/2 TBSP + 1/4 c sugar
-1/4 olive oil
-3 large eggs
-1/2 TBSP salt
-4 c all purpose flour
Dissolve yeast and sugar (1/2 TBSP) in 7/8 c warm water. Whisk in oil, then 2 eggs, then remaining salt and sugar. Gradually add flour. Knead on floured surface until smooth. Clean out bowl and grease it, then return dough to bowl. Cover with plastic wrap. Let rise in warm place for one hour. Punch down dough and let rise for 30 more minutes. Form into six strands and pinch tops. Braid over 2, under 1, over 2 starting at the right. Place on greased cookie sheet, and brush part of remaining egg on loaf. Let rise for up to another hour, and then brush remaining egg and poppy seeds onto loaf. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Enjoy!
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. I hope you have a blessed day!
