As of last night I've made 15 loaves of bread in the last two weeks! Eek! I branched out this year and didn't just make my challah (or rather Smitten Kitchen's challah) which is pictured above, I also made some classic white bread and some whole wheat.
And since I literally spent the entire past weekend in the kitchen, Antoine was sweet enough to put up our Xmas tree (a task I usually do). Then this adorableness happened and Antoine, because I was too busy either cooking or passing out, took this photo and shared it with me!
In addition to baking a ton of other stuff this week, one evening I cranked out 72 of these brown butter pecan sandies! Thankfully I had a couple leftover for Antoine and I to share. YUM!
Meanwhile, I think this guy might have missed me or something. He's a diligent helper in the kitchen (anxiously waiting for me to drop something), but I think he might have missed some precious couch time with me the last couple weeks. Because when I finally sat down for a second last night he got right up in my face and put his paw gingerly on my lap! It was so cute!
I hope everyone has a happy, safe holiday!
