Happy New Year!

Well, after a long summer hiatus, I am back! We had a great time this summer, but it was pretty hectic. Now that we're settling back into our regular lives, I'm happy to re-embrace my blogging self!
And there's no better way to do that than with some weekly memes. Lucky for me, we just celebrated Rosh HaShana, when we eat some pretty colorful food. Among other new things, I made some round chala:
Then, to ensure a sweet new year, I added chocolate chips to some of them :)
And of course, Rosh HaShana wouldn't be the same without - pomegranates! My son seeded ours for me this year again, for which I am very grateful - it's a tedious and often messy project:

That's it for now! I think those chalot are just right for Mellow Yellow Monday 
and the pomegranate seeds for Mary's Ruby Tuesday 

Check them both out this week, you'll be happy you did!
Here's wishing all of you a happy, sweet new year, full of everything your hearts desire! See you back here soon!

That bread looks divine! The sheen on the first one adds real eye appeal, the chocolate chips a tasty addition. The pomegranate has sweet seeds, and that accent is a perfect ruby for RT. Sweet and tasty is the theme!

Yum!! We added raisins to our challah, chocolate chips look MUCH more fun!

The mess of pomegranates is most of the fun!


Darling, scarlet ladybug,
On the prowl for bugs and such,
If I met you on the rug,
I would not be frightened (much).
