Bright Monday...



Bright Monday.  One of my favorite days of the year!  We started the day with Liturgy and a breakfast of pancakes and bacon...  yum!  Though we were planning a nice trip to our little zoo (with Papa!), the weather didn't quite cooperate.  It was just was well, because Button was under the weather (he's congested and coughing) and then in the late afternoon, Sugar Plum spiked a fever.  

To hang on to a little bit of the Paschal spirit, I decided to make Greek Pascha bread.  I love it, but have never made it before (that braid seems daunting!).  Though it was darker on the bottom than I would have liked (our oven gets so very hot!), it came out well and was quite easy to make.  We'll really enjoy this for breakfast all week!

very nice bread! :)

Hope everyone recovers from illness soon! I've heard it called 'Pascha flu' before...

The bread looks beautiful! You are a natural braider :) One thought about the oven. You might want to keep a pizza stone in your oven to even out the heat and bake right on top of the stone. We have two in our oven that never come out...

Hope your little ones are recovering!

Thank you, Jane! Someday, I am going to fly to CA for a bread baking course with you! :) Do you recommend a particular brand of pizza stone? I've wanted to get one for awhile, but haven't really researched them.
