Carrying On a Tradition No Matter What

Every Holy Thursday we have a tradition of inviting someone over to make Easter bread with us. This year everyone was busy recovering from being sick so I thought that it might not be a good idea to have anyone over to bake bread.

Mary-Kate was determined to carry on the bread making tradition though so she took it upon herself to make the bread anyway. This was very brave of her because she does not like the feel of the flour on her hands and thus does not kneed the dough anywhere long enough.
She did follow the recipe very well and did kneed the dough long enough. Then she got to her favorite part and braided the loaves beautifully. She even made enough to give away to all the people that we usually give bread to each year.
As you can see her loaves are beautiful to look at and I can tell you that they were delicious also.
