There's more to it, however. It isn't simply about sitting down at the dining room table and eating. It's the way she's made the kitchen her domain, the way whatever she's doing in the kitchen plays in the rest of the house, the way everything smells, sounds and feels as we get ready to end the week.
As you can imagine, Friday nights are a big deal in our home, a time for us to linger a little longer over dinner, to look back at the week that was, to look ahead to a couple of days of simply being a family, without the intrusions of the week getting in the way.
At first glance, this loaf of challah looks like any other, some egg bread that'll make some pretty decent toast when we wake up on Saturday morning. In reality, it's so much more, a handmade testament to what makes our house a home, and one of the reasons why I wish we could take days like this and hold onto them for just a little longer.
Your turn: how do you mark the end of the week?
