I was to bring 12 bread rolls to school for the teachers who would be having conferences that evening and not able to be at home for dinner. As an act of gratitude for all the hours they spend molding our children’s brains the parents volunteer to provide dinner for the school staff on conference night and I got…….. 12 bread rolls.

Challah pretzel bread isn’t something I typically whip out on a Thursday morning. But this past Thursday there I was hurriedly trying to combine yeast and warm water before school with both my kids fighting over who gets to help (when they should’ve been GETTING DRESSED!!!!!) Those exclamation points illustrate how my brain was feeling.
I suppose any normal person with a 5-year-old who had a Valentine’s Day party and needed Valentines for 20, a drink with a lid (no pop), a Valentine’s box, a decorated 100 Days-of-School poster, and okay, anyone with a 5-year-old, would’ve gone to the store and bought said rolls. But, what?! Hello?! That would mean that after dropping the kids off I would’ve actually had to come home and work! No, no, no! Not when I have to make (and possibly eat?) six loaves of sweet, delicious, challah pretzel bread for…… the teachers!!!!
Now soft, chewy pretzels, by themselves, are one of God’s gifts to the human race, but eggy, sweet challah dough given the pretzel treatment…….is like opening the gates of heaven. Religious or not, I’m unequivocally certain that if you make this and slather it with the smoky, citrusy lime butter you will be transported to a better place.
