...and vice versa

Mrs. Gerbil, who is not Jewish, has taken to baking challah every Friday afternoon.

My mother, who is, spent this morning making hot cross buns.

And in other sociocultural/culinary news, I present yours truly, barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen:

The Ky-ian in me is grinning from ear to ear at my state's well known stereotype brought to life.

Now tell me - what is challah? And hot cross buns? Neither of these things are familiar to me.

Oh, I so wanted to see a picture of you pregnant. You're still so tiny!

Challah is the traditional Jewish bread for the Sabbath. It is braided and (like most traditional Jewish cuisine) chock-full of eggs. Hot cross buns are sweet, sticky little buns with a cross in the top, either cut into the bun before baking (less fun) or iced on afterward (more fun). They are traditionally eaten on Good Friday.

dude, I am HUGE. There's 33% more of me now than there was in July!

Those both sound scrumptious! I shall have to try them if A and I are able to visit!

Hey you-- I just found your blog. And the gerb is HERE now! I just thought this post was great. I have pictures of myself in exactly the same situation (BF and P in the K) with Gabriel, a little over three years ago.

Yippee, I'm a Great Auntie!
