Apparently, two Fridays ago was “National Make Challah in Day Camp Day”, because each member of the Shiputzim family’s keitanah (day camp) contingent did just that.
Unfortunately, by the time they got home, their challahs were stuck to the plastic plates, and the tops had partially baked in the heat.
Nevertheless, the Resident Ulpanistit – aka our Baker-in-Chief – skillfully salvaged most of the dough, which the young bakers reassembled into four loaves of varying sizes and textures:
The young bakers proudly and generously shared their culinary masterpieces with the rest of the family and with our Shabbat guests.
Well done, young bakers!
And in related news, today officially marks the last day of keitanah. In other words, the kids are now looking at more than a month of unstructured boredom. (Fun, fun, fun…)
Hopefully, we’ll IY”H do some family activities after Tisha B’Av. Watch this space for details. And in the meantime…
