The rabbis might call me "umvisndik" (yiddish) but my Jewish ancestry has not made me big on the religion, all to say I appreciate the holy days more for the cheerful spirit and the food than for the rules. Which given it's the Jewish New Years made me want to bake challah. Reading up on the holiday, its all about renewal, so I renewed my take on sourdough to make a round challah. It was hard to braid as challah tends to be sticky dough, so I kept it simple. As is said, "shona tova!" Happy holidays to all.
