Aren't those beautiful? And husband had eaten half of them before I got the photo taken! Lots of salads and greens in the garden, and starting to get peas. Thankfully rain this May (there was none last May). Half the hard corn is in. We're a little late there but still ok.
And this was inspired by Alecto's challah. Pay no attention to the fact that it looks like whales mating or something. I obviously didn't do the "twist" right. Next time I'll braid it. It is whole wheat of course, and did fine. I used four small eggs instead of 3 big ones. And I added some gluten to the whole wheat. And I let it raise the first time about 4 hours, but the second time was much faster and sort of surprised me when it was ready so I'm not sure how long it was. Anyway, it is gone now already, my youngest having fallen in love with it so we ate it for desert. But the recipe's directions on twisting and birds were just horrible. I still have no idea what they meant. But it sure does taste good.
Those eggs in the background? A "new" nest, which means a nest we hadn't found until it had that many eggs in it, so we keep them separate since we don't know for sure how old they are, and we break them one at a time into a cup to make sure they are not spoiled. We have a lot of eggs right now. And a lot of milk. And I've been making things like flan, and this bread, anything that takes eggs. I notice how really good things to eat are so simple and use what is plentiful anyway instead of lots of rare ingredients. And they are usually pretty simple to make too.
Ok, all you folks with gardens, eat what's in them! Do not be saving! Do not give away, or preserve, or heaven's sake sell before you eat all you can possibly hold. Eat eat eat. And enjoy.
