Text: I learned about great meals one Saturday night before Rosh Hashonah. The bakery
opened after sundown and we picked up a round raisin challah still so warm the lady behind
the counter didn't dare put it in the slicer. At home the butter melted on it just like that. We
sat around the table until it was gone.
