Holy Thursday Update 2

The tsoureki is out of the oven.


I've decided to call this "Jesus is risen..." bread, which is short for, "Jesus is risen...an hour earlier than the recipe said so this behemoth is a result of letting the bread rise too much" bread.

Seriously, look at this thing. The two loaves melded to form one giant thing.

The egg is for scale. I didn't stick it in the braid when I shaped the bread because it's a decorative thing, and I wanted to save my eggs.
As you can see, I took a big gash from the loaf on the right to make sure it was done on the inside. Somehow, despite the size, it was. Preliminary tests suggest that this bread tastes like tree sap, and orange zest.

Between this update, and the last, Phil returned from a work trip. He's watching The Kid, which is a relief because it means I'm free to work on my stories. That's the term Phil uses to describe the shows I watch on Netflix.

I'm keeping an eye on the church. If I can stay awake, I'll check out the interior later tonight.
