This was my kitchen way back in July. See the tomatoes on the window sill? Must have been a bountiful week. The tomatoes are gone, but the clutter is still there.
This was in my kitchen last Friday: doughnuts for Chanukah (we have a custom of eating foods fried in oil to remember the oil that miraculously lasted for 8 days) and challah for Shabbat (the commandment or mitzvah is to eat two loaves of bread with each Shabbat meal – a rich egg bread has developed as the tradition to uphold the mitzvah). Yes, both are homemade. Little red in this photo, but it does keep with the theme of my kitchen!
And here are some red strawberries that got gobbled up last night, along with the doughnuts (sufganiyot) and latkes (potato pancakes). I also made Mimi’s fish soup and a cubed pressed salad of cucumbers and carrots that I seasoned with fresh-squeezed lemon juice, orange juice, and chopped fresh ginger root.

Missed those red tomatoes and those home grown strawberry. Thanks for sharing!
My Red Tuesday
It’s a good thing that you are sharing the contents of Hanukkah with your readers. I learned something last year, but need refreshing my knowledge.
We cannot be reminded often enough about our Lord’s many wonders.
The eggbread in the background looks tempting.
It’s a good thing that you are making all this food from scratch.
Even home grown berries. Ai, ai.
I have to go down to my freezer and fetch some of my self bought!
I bought those berries. My berries from June are long gone! We get homegrown strawberries for two weeks, and that is it.
The egg bread, aka challah, is better than cake – less sweet, but just sweet enough. Too good!
The tomatoes are log gone up here, but not forgotten! The doughnuts look delicious, a family treat where fried is not a negative connotation, a time together at a special time of year.
I can taste the deep fried latkes, the berries a sweet treat that works well with the savory items. Happy Chanukah
The donuts caught my eyes right away, they look delicious!
They taste too good! We ate the ones made on Sunday night 10 minutes after they were made – irresistible. I’m going to eat salad and rice for the rest of the week.
The tomatoes brings back summer memories, as do the strawberries. And it all looks so delicious.
Love tomatoes and strawberries … especially the home-grown kind 😉
Hugs and blessings,
that bread looks quite yummy and i like your kitchen even with the clutter. it looks homey. Happy RT!
I would have some pretty red strawberries, please. They look really good!
Happy RT! 🙂
BTW, I have some red strawberries on my breakfast waffle plate for RT. 😉
A lovely series. Did you make this RT badge? Can we borrow it?
Yes, you can use the badge! I got tired of the two variations of slippers I had.
Thanks for noticing.
Great, thank you!
Luscious looking delights for Ruby Tuesday!
Those strawberries look great, and I like your pretty blue wall tiles!
I had fun picking out those wall tiles ten years ago. It was one of the best parts of having the kitchen redone.
Strawberry is one of my family’s favorite.

My R T is posted…it’s all about Pecan Toffee Bark today. Come over and I’ll share a piece with you…
Donuts and strawberries – when can I come over?
How come I don’t get a response like that to my many soup recipes?
Plenty of fats and carbs – magic – hard to beat that kind of pleasure 🙂
The donuts looks delish!
My RT with Santa
Those strawberries look luscious. And homemade donuts sound divine. I’ve never made them; maybe someday.
Your kitchen looks like home, I don’t mind a little clutter. 😉
I also noticed your new RT badge. Very cool.
Thanks for noticing the Ruby Tuesday badge. If you use it, would love a little link love the first (or 2nd or 3rd) time you use it. But you are welcome to use it! I got inspired.
I think it is lovely clutter, so many pretty colors
I love challah, could probably eat the 2 loaves myself
Pretty clutter – what a great theme.
OH, I would love some donuts, they look so good.
Please can I have your recipe for sufganiyot? I haven’t tried to make them before, but would like a full 12 months of practice in 2010:-)
BTW, I just visited the website with the dairy free oatmeal cookie recipe. What is “earth balance”? Is it some kind of vegetarian glue (smile)
See my note to Raizy on this post:
“earth balance” – sort of like margarine but no trans fats – I guess you can only get it in the U.S.?
Happy Chanukah. I love the challah bread, I buy it at Whole Foods. It is very close to Bulgarian kozunak that is made for Easter – something between challah and panetone. Your homemade bread though looks nothing like the one from the store – many times better – very yellow yummy view. You have a very inviting cozy kitchen. I enjoyed the tour.
Oh, to have some fresh garden tomatoes about now!
Just reading about your culinary delights is making me hungry Leora. 🙂
Deliciousness! Loved reading about your feast and enjoy your new Ruby Tuesday badge.
Thanks for noticing the badge! Feel free to use it. Linking to my blog once if you use it would be nice but not required.
Those doughnuts I would so much like to taste !!! Delicious pics you have here. And Merry Christmastime to you and Happy New Year !!!!!
Nukke, we don’t celebrate Xmas, but you have a good holiday season. Enjoy.
Lovely reds in your kitchen. Nice RT badge.
You found some really nice berries to use..Sigh summer…. Michelle
Would you please e-mail hungry ol’ «Louis» some of that challah and a doughnut or two? 😉
Louis, you’ll just have to come to the east coast and visit me for a bite! The doughnuts taste best eaten ten minutes after cooking.
Last night, my daughter (Chinese)went to a Chanukah party for the very first time. She told me about the bread and oil.
